POST Json in Java ~ HttpURLConnection ~


An article summarizing how to HTTP POST JSON in Java

Only the minimum necessary writing style is summarized.


For the sake of simplicity, we have prepared a JSON format string. Please refer to other articles for how to convert JSON to java.

It is assumed that the caller instantiates this class and calls the execute () method.


The procedure is as follows

  1. Make settings for connecting with HttpURLConnection
  2. Establish a connection
  3. Write to the request and body
  4. Receive the response
  5. Disconnect

How to communicate with HTTP in Java


public class Sample {

	private HttpURLConnection conn;
	private URL url;

	private  String  URL ="";

	private String json =
		"{" +
			" \"searchCondition\": {" +
			" \"conditions\": [" +
				"{" +
					" \"conditionType\": \"Name\","+
					" \"Value\": 200," +
				" }"+
			"]" +
		"}," +
		"\"outputMethod\": \"split\","+
		"\"zipFileName\": \"\"" +

	private String result;

	Sample() throws IOException{

		//1.Make settings to connect

		//Call the openConnection method on the URL to create a connection object
		url = new URL(URL);
		conn = (HttpURLConnection) url.openConnection();

		//Various settings of HttpURLConnection
		//Set HTTP method to POST
		//Allow body submission of request
		//Allow body reception of response
		//Specify Json format
		conn.setRequestProperty("Content-Type", "application/json; charset=utf-8");

		// 2.Establish a connection

	public String execute() throws IOException{

		// 3.Write to request and body
		//Get OutputStream from HttpURLConnection and write json string
		PrintStream ps = new PrintStream(conn.getOutputStream());

		// 4.Receive a response
		//HttpStatusCode 200 is returned at the end of normal operation
		if (conn.getResponseCode() != 200) {
			//Error handling

		//Get InputStream from HttpURLConnection and read
		BufferedReader br = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(conn.getInputStream(), "UTF-8"));

		StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder();
		String line;

		while ((line = br.readLine()) != null) {
		result = sb.toString();

		// 5.Disconnect

		//Return the result to the caller
		return result;


Use the following methods to set HtppURLConnection. For details, please refer to the official reference etc. Use the following method to modify the setup parameters. ・ SetAllowUserInteraction ・ SetDoInput ・ SetDoOutput ・ SetIfModifiedSince ・ SetUseCaches Use the following methods to modify general request properties. ・ SetRequestProperty
