Problem with json-rpc in client side

Hi all,

I am new to confluence. I am try to use json-rpc api to create a new space on confluence via java prgram.

(The confluence is running on the virtual box on my computer)

here is my code:

import com.thetransactioncompany.jsonrpc2.client.*;

import com.thetransactioncompany.jsonrpc2.*;

import net.minidev.json.*;


public class JsonRpcClient {

static {


public boolean verify(String hostname, sslSession) {

if (hostname.equals("myserver")) {

return true;


return false;




public void createSpace(){

URL serverURL = null;


serverURL = new URL ("https://myserver/rpc/json-rpc/confluenceservice-v2");

}catch(MalformedURLException e){



JSONRPC2Session mySession = new JSONRPC2Session(serverURL);

mySession.setConnectionConfigurator(new BasicAuthenticator());

String jsonString = "{\"jsonrpc\" : \"2.0\", \"method\" : \"addSpace\", \"params\" : \n" +

" {\"key\" : \"DS\", \"name\" : \"Document Space\",\"description\" : \"This is a test\" },\"id\":\"12345\"}";

JSONRPC2Request request = null;


request = JSONRPC2Request.parse(jsonString);

}catch(JSONRPC2ParseException e){



JSONRPC2Response response = null;

try {

response = mySession.send(request);

} catch (JSONRPC2SessionException e) {


// handle exception...


// Print response result / error

if (response.indicatesSuccess())





public static void main (String[] args){

JsonRpcClient client = new JsonRpcClient();




Then, I will get
Network exception: PKIX path building failed: unable to find valid certification path to requested target
What should I do ?
Thanks alot

your keystore is not containing a certificate for the SSL handshake. Please review this page for further instructions

Hi Sabine,

Appreciate for your response, I figure ou the problem, I also review the following link

I waste lots of time because I put the certificate in the wrong keystore !
