Using HttpClient in Java to Invoke Interzoid APIs

Using HttpClient in Java

In Java 11, a standardized HTTPClient was introduced enabling the sending of requests into the Cloud and the retrieval of responses.

Here is a quick basic example of usage (putting the API license key in the header):

                
      // create the request with the API end point and parameters
      HttpRequest request = HttpRequest.newBuilder()
           .uri(URI.create("https://api.interzoid.com/getcompanymatchadvanced?company=
                    IBM&algorithm=wide"))
           .header("content-type", "application/json")
           .header("x-api-key", "YOURAPIKEY")
           .method("GET", HttpRequest.BodyPublishers.noBody())
           .build();

      // make the request and receive the response
      response = HttpClient.newHttpClient().send(request,
                    HttpResponse.BodyHandlers.ofString());

      // print the response to the console
      System.out.println(response.body());
                

In this particular example, we are generating a similarity key for an organization name. This enables us to locate (through sorting, for example) other organization names that are similar, such as this:

Table of inconsistent company names and similarity key generation for data matching and standardization API

Identifying redundant organization names can be crucial in customer, vendor, or prospect databases. Additionally, this same technique can help us match company records across different data sources.
