Small Java wrapper for the Ardoq REST-API.


Add the Ardoq maven repository to your pom.xml


Add ardoq-java-client to your dependencies.


NOTE This repository is not browsable so your IDE won’t pick it up automatically. Use the mvn cli to download it mvn install


//Basic auth
ArdoqClient client = new ArdoqClient("hostname", "username", "password");
ArdoqClient client = new ArdoqClient("hostname", "token");
//Custom proxy settings
RequestConfig config = RequestConfig.custom().setProxy(new HttpHost("", 9090)).build();
ArdoqClient client = new ArdoqClient("hostname", "token", config);

The client will operate on the default organization (Personal). To change this

ArdoqClient client = new ArdoqClient("hostname", "username", "password").setOrganization("my-organization");

Starting a small project

ArdoqClient client = new ArdoqClient(host, ardoqUsername, ardoqPassword);
Model model = client.model().getModelByName("Application service");
Workspace workspace = client.workspace().createWorkspace(new Workspace("demo-workspace", model.getId(), "Description"));
ComponentService componentService = client.component();
Component webshop = componentService.createComponent(new Component("Webshop", workspace.getId(), "Webshop description"));
Component webShopCreateOrder = componentService.createComponent(new Component("createOrder", workspace.getId(), "Order from cart", model.getComponentTypeByName("Service"), webshop.getId()));
Component erp = componentService.createComponent(new Component("ERP", workspace.getId(), ""));
Component erpCreateOrder = componentService.createComponent(new Component("createOrder", workspace.getId(), "", model.getComponentTypeByName("Service"), erp.getId()));
//Create a Synchronous integration between the Webshop:createOrder and ERP:createOrder services
Reference createOrderRef = new Reference(workspace.getId(), "Order from cart", webShopCreateOrder.getId(), erpCreateOrder.getId(), model.getReferenceTypeByName("Synchronous"));
createOrderRef.setReturnValue("Created order");
Reference reference = client.reference().createReference(createOrderRef);
List<String> componentIds = Arrays.asList(webShopCreateOrder.getId(), erpCreateOrder.getId());
List<String> referenceIds = Arrays.asList(reference.getId());
client.tag().createTag(new Tag("Customer", workspace.getId(), "", componentIds, referenceIds));

Running this simple example lets Ardoq visualize the components and their relationships.

The model API is not stable yet, so you have to create your Model in the UI and refer to the id.

More examples

The API is pretty straightforward. For more examples, please refer to the tests.
