Verify Your Credentials and Access a Catalog

Objectives: Verify that you set up the platform credentials and the Maven settings correctly, and introduce the concepts of HRN, Catalogs, Layers and Metadata.

Complexity: Easy

Time to complete: 20 min

Depends on: Verify Maven Settings

Source code: Download

This section demonstrates how to write a program that queries catalog information from the HERE Map Content data catalog (hrn: hrn:here:data::olp-here:rib-2).

After running this example successfully, you can be sure that your repository credentials and the platform credentials are set up correctly.

You can create this project in the verify-credentials folder, using the same structure and pom from the previous tutorial.

The dependencies needed for this example are as follows:

<dependencies>
    <dependency>
        <groupId>com.here.platform.data.client</groupId>
        <artifactId>data-client_${scala.compat.version}</artifactId>
    </dependency>
</dependencies>

To gather some metadata about a catalog, create some code in Scala or Java in the source folder.

If you have not generated your repository settings or platform credentials yet, see Get Credentials. After you have followed these instructions, you should have both a settings.xml with repository credentials, and a credentials.properties with platform credentials.

The program queries the HERE Map Content catalog (the catalog with all the traditional HERE map data) to get the latest available version, and some metadata associated with the catalog such as issue date, available layers, and the list of direct dependencies with the input catalogs you used to create this catalog).

You can now run your code either using your IDE, or from the command line using mvn:

Run Scala
Run Java
mvn compile exec:java -Dexec.mainClass=CatalogInfoScala
mvn compile exec:java -Dexec.mainClass=CatalogInfoJava

The expected output should look like this, with the confirmation that your code was successful in fetching the token:

[INFO] [...] [CatalogInfoJava.main()] [DataClientSettingsExt] Reading credentials from default credentials file XXXX
[INFO] [...] [default-akka.actor.default-dispatcher-5] [HereAccountProvider] OAuth token fetched successfully with expiration of 86399s, next refresh scheduled in 57599s.
The latest Here Map Content version is 32
The catalog was last updated on Sat May 26 10:14:24 CEST 2018
And was reportedly compiled out of this input catalogs:
  hrn:here:data:::tailgate-2 28
  hrn:here:datastore:::os-rib-address-global-1 221
  hrn:here:datastore:::os-rib-carto-global-1 222
  hrn:here:datastore:::os-rib-street-global-1 217

The output lists the input catalog HRNs, together with their respective versions.

Further Information

The Data Client Library is a complete API for accessing the Data Service. You can use this API to query the catalog metadata (versions, layers, partitions inside the layers) and data (actual partition payload). For more details, see Data Client Library Developer Guide.

The Data Client Library documentation covers more detailed workflows such as how to introspect more metadata fields, fetching data from partitions, and examining content changes between versions.

The following sections explain how to create your own catalog and layers and explore the available layer types and configrations:

Now that you have verified your platform credentials to access the HERE Map Content, you can implement a simple batch pipeline to process catalog data in Spark.
