not able to create jira issue link using JRJC


I have implemented jirarestclient using AsynchronousJiraRestClientFactory. Then fetching Issuerestclient like below and trying to link issue.

IssueRestClient issueRestClient=jiraRestClient.getIssueClient();


It gives below exception for json creation. Can anyone give an example of creation of issue Link. org.codehaus.jettison.json.JSONException: A JSONObject text must begin with '{' at character 1 of <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?><status><status-code>404</status-code><message>null for uri: http://localhost:8080/rest/api/latest/issueLink/rest/api/latest/serverInfo</message></status>

Have you configured properly base url for your JIRA instance? The URI in exception doesn't look good:


I guess that your base URI should look like that: http://localhost:8080/</strong<>>

And I guess that you've used that base URI instead: http://localhost:8080/rest/api/latest/issueLink
