Exception returned from Splunk when running simple search query via the splunk java sdk

New Member

Hi

I am running one of the simple search examples provided in the splunk Java SDK distribution:

    public class Program {

public static void main(String[] args) {
    try {
        run(args);
    }
    catch (Exception e) {
        e.printStackTrace();
        System.exit(1);
    }
}

static void run(String[] args) throws IOException {
    Command command = Command.splunk("search");
    command.parse(args);

    if (command.args.length != 1)
        Command.error("Search expression required");
    String query = command.args[0];

    Service service = Service.connect(command.opts);

    // Check the syntax of the query.
    try {
        Args parseArgs = new Args("parse_only", true);
        service.parse(query, parseArgs);
    }
    catch (HttpException e) {
        String detail = e.getDetail();
        Command.error("query '%s' is invalid: %s", query, detail);
    }

    // This is the simplest form of searching splunk. Note that additional
    // arguments are allowed, but they are not shown in this example.
    InputStream stream = service.oneshotSearch(query);

    InputStreamReader reader = new InputStreamReader(stream, "UTF8");
    try {
        OutputStreamWriter writer = new OutputStreamWriter(System.out);
        try {
            int size = 1024;
            char[] buffer = new char[size];
            while (true) {
                int count = reader.read(buffer);
                if (count == -1) break;
                writer.write(buffer, 0, count);
            }

            writer.write("\n");
        }
        finally {
            writer.close();
        }
    }
    finally {
        reader.close();
    }
}

}

When running the example from the command line as follows:

java com.splunk.examples.search_simple.Program "search * |  head 10" --host=my_splunk_instance --port=80 --scheme=http

..I keep getting the following exception:

    [Fatal Error] :1:50: White spaces are required between publicId and systemId.

com.splunk.HttpException: HTTP 400
at com.splunk.HttpException.create(HttpException.java:59)
at com.splunk.HttpService.send(HttpService.java:355)
at com.splunk.Service.send(Service.java:1203)
at com.splunk.HttpService.post(HttpService.java:212)
at com.splunk.Service.oneshotSearch(Service.java:1094)
at com.splunk.Service.oneshotSearch(Service.java:1115)
at com.splunk.examples.searchsimple.Program.run(Program.java:70)
at com.splunk.examples.search
simple.Program.main(Program.java:34)

It appears as if the server is expecting the request in XML or JSON format. Any help much appreciated

Thanks
Joe

Your command looks wrong, try this , replace with your actual enviornment values :

java com.splunk.examples.search_simple.Program "search * |  head 10" --host=somehost --port=8089 --scheme=https --username=admin --password=somepass
