Hello, Recently it was revealed that the Finding API will only support HTTPS moving forward. Currently I use the [Java Finding Kit] in my application but I'm wondering if this uses HTTP or HTTPS. If this does not use HTTPS is there an alternative SDK or WSDL that I can use? Thank you, Jonathan :
Is this true? I am a long time findingapi user. Used java api and ClientFactory. When I received the message i started looking and I think the finding api has not updated for java since 2011. I moved away from using ClientFactory since I believe it used http.
Hello @sanjeev_developersupport Thank you for the reply, I greatly appreciate it. I wanted to clarify however that I am using the Java Finding Kit for enhanced search (
https://developer.ebay.com/DevZone/codebase/javasdk-jaxb/FindingKitJava_1.0.zip) not just the Java SDK. From looking at the WSDL for the Java Finding Kit it seems like it is only using HTTP. For the Java SDK (
https://developer.ebay.com/tools/javasdk) it does look like you can configure it to point to the HTTPS endpoint via a Config.xml, I'm not sure if this is what you were referring to however. Currently I utilize the FindItemsAdvancedRequest to search for products that match. If the Java Finding Kit will no longer be supported does the regular Java SDK support an advanced search like this? If not is my only other option managing the HTTPS requests myself? Thank you, Jonathan
Exactly the problem I faced and invesigated. The sdk is not https compatible. You can use the WSDL but should avoid ClientFactory, at least that is what I did to be sure that i'm using the https ffinding api endpoint. Wouter
I moved away from using the ClientFacory supplied by ebay since i wanted to be sure i'm using the right endpoint since the provided sdk is old. Right now i can say that im using the provided https endpoint after spending a few hours on my own cleaner solution.
