RHDG REST request is not returning JSON style output

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • After migration to RHDG 7.3 the behaviour of REST queries changed. With legacy versions the result is JSON formatted, but with 7.3 it will be shown as binary. What is the reason for this?
  • After migrating to 7.3 the results of the rest api ickle search shows the individual "hit" row value as binary instead of json.
$ curl -X GET "http://localhost:8080/rest/IcklePlayCompanyCache?action=search&query=from%20playground.Company%20c%20where%20c.isStockCompany=true"
  "total_results" : 1,
  "hits" : [ {
    "hit" : "�\u0001\u0012playground.Company�\u0001U\b\u0001\u0012\u0007Red Hat\u0018\u0001\" \b\u0001\u0012\tWolf Fink\u001A\rwf@redhat.com (\u0001\"\u001D\b\u0002\u0012\u0007William\u001A\fm@redhat.com \u0011(\u0001(��ç�."
