Searching by product name and receiving a list of items that match the name (Java)

In this use case, the user types the name of a product on a search bar and expects a list of items that match his search. This usually happens when there is just a single seller catalog published a BPP

Search

Code snippets

Client calls the BAP server to trigger search:

    @PostMapping("/local_retail/search_by_product_name")
    public ResponseEntity searchByProductName(
            @RequestHeader HttpHeaders headers,
            @RequestBody ClientSearchRequest request) {
        var response = bapApplicationService.generateSearchRequest(request, headers);
        return ResponseEntity.ok(response);
    }

BAP server generates the protocol request body

BAP server calls protocol search to the network

    public Response invokeSearch(SearchRequest request, HttpHeaders headers) {

        // Call to look up function which returns the the public key and BPP/BG Endpoint to be called
        var url = lookUp(headers);

        var searchResponse = apiClient.post(url[0] + Context.ActionEnum.search,
                constructRequestHeaders(),
                request,
                Response.class);
        if (responseEntity.getBody() == null || responseEntity.getBody().getError() != null ||
                "NACK".equals(responseEntity.getBody().getMessage().getAck().getStatus())) {
            // Return custom error to the client
            return null;
        }
        return searchResponse.getBody();
    }

BAP receives protocol on_search
