Binary Support for API Integrations with Amazon API Gateway - multipart/form-data, application/octet-stream

Binary Support for API Integrations with Amazon API Gateway

Create an API and POST method to support binary, eg: multipart/form-data, application/octet-stream

For API name , enter ‘Thumbnail’, add a description, and choose Create API.

In the created API, choose Resources Actions , and Create Method.

To create the method, choose POST and select the checkmark.

To set up the POST method, for Integration type , select HTTP , enter ‘https://${stageVariables.environmentUrl}’ for Endpoint URL. Choose Save.

Set up the integration

Now, you are ready to set up the integration. In the main page, open Integration Request.

On the Integration Request page, check Use HTTP Proxy integration.For Content Handling , choose Passthrough.

Specify which media types need to be handled as binary. Choose [API name]Binary Support.

Choose Edit , specify the media type (such as “multipart/form-data”) to be handled as binary, and then choose Save.

Choose Edit , specify the media type (such as “application/octet-stream”) to be handled as binary, and then choose Save.


Now that the API is configured, you need to deploy it. On the thumbnail Resources page, choose Action , Deploy API.


Now, you are ready to test the newly created API.

Install Eclipse-Che on Ubuntu server

  • Install jdk1.8+ & set JAVA_HOME

  • Install Docker

  • $ which curl
    $ sudo apt-get update
    $ sudo apt-get install curl
    $ curl -sSL | sh
    If you would like to use Docker as a non-root user, you should now consider
    adding your user to the "docker" group with something like:
    $ sudo usermod -aG docker serveradmin
    Remember that you will have to log out and back in for this to take effect!
  • Verify docker is installed correctly

  • $ docker run hello-world
    $ sudo docker run hello-world
    This command downloads a test image and runs it in a container.
  • Download eclipse-che installation jar

  • The reason why I download the installation jar (JAR Universal Extractor) instead of directly use docker image with following command is that way isn't work for me. It's always showing some error.
    $ docker run -it -p 1104:8080 codenvy/che
  • Install eclipse-che

  • $ sudo mkdir /usr/local/eclipse-che-4.0.0-RC3
    $ sudo chown -R serveradmin:serveradmin /usr/local/eclipse-che-4.0.0-RC3
    $ java -jar eclipse-che-latest.jar 

    You should select "/usr/local/eclipse-che-4.0.0-RC3" as target installation dir.
  • Add execute permisson to TOMCAT script

  • $ cd /usr/local/eclipse-che-4.0.0-RC3/tomcat/bin
    $ chmod +x *.sh
  • Set CHE_HOME

  • $ vi ~/.bashrc
    Add the line to it
    export CHE_HOME=/usr/local/eclipse-che-4.0.0-RC3
    $ source ~/.bashrc
    Create link to /usr/bin
    $ sudo ln -s /usr/local/eclipse-che-4.0.0-RC3/bin/ /usr/bin/che
    Now,you can start Eclipse-Che by
    $ che start

    • Get current running class dir path
    • String jarOrBuildClassDir = getClass().getProtectionDomain().getCodeSource().getLocation().getPath();

      It will return 'build/classes/main' if you run it on IDE


      It will return the location of 'jar' file which the class archived if you run it in a jar file

    • Get special resources file path that copy from 'src/main/java/resources/com/demo/test.xsl'
    • URL xslFileURL = getClass().getResource("/com/demo/test.xsl")

      It will return 'build/resources/main' if you run it on IDE


      It will return the location of 'jar' file which the class archived if you run it in a jar file

    BTrace trace ClassLoader Leaking

    If you want to trace the common ClassLoader leaking, you just probe where to invoke "ClassLoader#defineClass". The BTrace script as follow:
    import com.sun.btrace.AnyType;
    import com.sun.btrace.annotations.*;
    import static com.sun.btrace.BTraceUtils.*;
    public class Trace {
       @OnMethod(clazz = "+java.lang.ClassLoader", 
                 method = "defineClass")
        public static void traceClassLoaderLeak(@ProbeClassName String clazz, @ProbeMethodName String method, @TargetInstance Object instance) {
            println("\n==== java.lang.ClassLoader#defineClass ====");

    Share value between main report, multi sub reports

    How to shared value between multi crystal report sub report?
    1.       Create two sub reports

    2.       Define Formula Field (defineGlobalPersonName)  in subReport1

    3.       Tricky: This formula field (defineGlobalPersonName) must use in somewhere in sub report (subReport1) where inject value into the shared variable. Otherwise, other sub report where reference the shared value (personName)  can’t get the value when printing records.

    4.       Used shared variable in other sub report (subReport2)
    (a)    Declare another “formula field (retreiveBackPersonName)” to retrieve value from above shared variable (personName)

    (b)   Use this formula field (retreiveBackPersonName)  in your sub report (subReport2)
    5.       Preview final report

    6.       If you want shared value to main report as well.  You just only declare one “formula field (sharedValue)”  in main report. Then you can use it
