Java based REST Client


#1

Hey guys,

I’m using Spring Cloud OpenFeign together with the Camunda REST DTOs to access a Camunda process via the REST Api.

The only Maven dependency for Camunda is:

<dependency>
    <groupId>org.camunda.bpm</groupId>
    <artifactId>camunda-engine-rest</artifactId>
    <version>7.11.0</version>
    <classifier>classes</classifier>                                   
</dependency>

This works alright. But for using the ProcessDefinitionDto I also need to add the camunda-engine library, because ProcessDefinitionDto references ProcessDefinition (which resides in the engine lib).

Don’t have any big issues including the lib. I just wonder if using the DTOs is the best practice to build a Java based REST client?

Thanks for any feedback and best regards,
Thorsten
