Retrieving  Item Specific data with GetItem in JAVA SDK

Detail Description

 Item Specific data is returned in GetItem response if  DetailLevel is set to ItemReturnAttributes. Following code sample illustrates on how to retrieve sport ticket item's attributes. Before using the code, you  need to  find the event ticket's attributes  (check the KB article Example and sample code for how to list with Item Specifics for details).

private void getItem() {
        String itemId = "";
        GetItemCall request = new GetItemCall(apiContext);
        ItemIDType itemID = new ItemIDType(itemId);
        request.setDetailLevel(new DetailLevelCodeType[]{
        ItemType itemReturned =null;
        try {                        
             itemReturned = request.getItem();
            AttributeSetArrayType attrSetArrayType =itemReturned.getAttributeSetArray();
            if (attrSetArrayType != null){
                AttributeSetType[] attributes = attrSetArrayType.getAttributeSet();
                for (int index=0; index<attributes.length; index++){
                    AttributeSetType theSet = attributes[index];
                   //check if it's an event ticket attributeSet                    
       if (theSet.getAttributeSetID() ==1){
        }catch (Exception e) {      
            if( e instanceof SdkSoapException ){
                 SdkSoapException sdkExe = (SdkSoapException)e;
                ErrorType errs = sdkExe.getErrorType();
                System.out.println("SdkSoapException error code " +errs.getErrorCode()+ "error shot message" + errs.getShortMessage());
            if (e instanceof ApiException ){
                ApiException apiExe = (ApiException)e;
                ErrorType[] errs = apiExe.getErrors();
                for (int j=0; j<errs.length; j++){
                    System.out.println("ApiException error code " +errs[j].getErrorCode()+ "error shot message" + errs[j].getShortMessage());

 *  obtain event ticket item specific data
 private void getTicketAttr(AttributeSetType attrSet,ItemType item ){

       // create a TicketBean object for storing the attribute data
       // or you can store data to a Collection 
        TicketBean ticket = new TicketBean();
        AttributeType[] attrTypeArray = attrSet.getAttribute();
        for(int attrIndex=0; attrIndex<attrTypeArray.length; attrIndex++){
            AttributeType theAttr = attrTypeArray[attrIndex];
            //<Attribute labelVisible='true' id='10399' > <Label><![CDATA[Row]]
            if (theAttr.getAttributeID()== 10399){
            //<Attribute labelVisible='true' id='10400' > <Label><![CDATA[Section]]>
            if (theAttr.getAttributeID() ==10400){
            //<Attribute labelVisible='true' IsRequired='true' id='1' > <Label><![CDATA[Number of Tickets]]>
            if (theAttr.getAttributeID()==1){
            // <Attribute labelVisible='true' id='2' > <Label><![CDATA[Month]]>
            if (theAttr.getAttributeID()==2){
            //<Attribute labelVisible='true' id='44812' parentAttrId='2' > <Label><![CDATA[Day]]>
            if (theAttr.getAttributeID()==44812){
            //<Attribute labelVisible='true' id='44811' > <Label><![CDATA[Year]]>
            if (theAttr.getAttributeID()==44811){
            //<Attribute labelVisible='true' id='63' parentAttrId='10' > <Label><![CDATA[Venue Name]]>
            if (theAttr.getAttributeID()==63){
        System.out.println("The itemId : "+ ticket.getItemId());
        System.out.println("The ticket's ROW -> " + ticket.getRow());
        System.out.println("The number of ticket -> " + ticket.getNumOfTicket());
        System.out.println("The Venue Name: " +ticket.getVenueName());
        System.out.println("The ticket is on " +ticket.getMonth()+" "+ticket.getDay()+", "+ticket.getYear());
        System.out.println("The Item's start price : "+ticket.getStartPrice());
