Using Amazon AppConfig Agent to read a freeform configuration profile

Each of the following samples includes comments about the actions performed by the code.

Java
public void retrieveConfigFromAgent() throws Exception { /* In this sample, we will retrieve configuration data from the Amazon AppConfig Agent. The agent is a sidecar process that handles retrieving configuration data from AppConfig for you in a way that implements best practices like configuration caching. For more information about the agent, see Simplified retrieval methods */ // The agent runs a local HTTP server that serves configuration data // Make a GET request to the agent's local server to retrieve the configuration data URL url = new URL("http://localhost:2772/applications/MyDemoApp/environments/Beta/configurations/MyConfigProfile"); HttpURLConnection con = (HttpURLConnection) url.openConnection(); con.setRequestMethod("GET"); StringBuilder content; try (BufferedReader in = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(con.getInputStream()))) { content = new StringBuilder(); int ch; while ((ch = in.read()) != -1) { content.append((char) ch); } } con.disconnect(); System.out.println("Configuration from agent via HTTP: " + content); }
