Example Code for a Webhook Receiver Server

The following example applications -- one in Go, the other in Java -- are generic, universal webhook receivers that accept the POST from the AtScale platform and simply echo some of the posted parameters.

Example in Go

package main
import (

func test(w http.ResponseWriter, r *http.Request) {
r.ParseForm() // parse arguments, you have to call this by yourself
fmt.Println(r.Form) // print form information in server side
fmt.Println("path", r.URL.Path)
fmt.Println("scheme", r.URL.Scheme)
for k, v := range r.Form {
fmt.Println("key:", k)
fmt.Println("val:", strings.Join(v, ""))
fmt.Fprintf(w, "Hello World!") // send data to client side

func main() {
http.HandleFunc("/webhook", test) // set router
err := http.ListenAndServe(":3030", nil) // set listen port
if err != nil {
log.Fatal("ListenAndServe: ", err)

Example in Java

import java.io.IOException;
import java.io.OutputStream;
import java.net.InetSocketAddress;

import com.sun.net.httpserver.HttpExchange;
import com.sun.net.httpserver.HttpHandler;
import com.sun.net.httpserver.HttpServer;
* a simple static http server
public class Webhook {
public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
HttpServer server = HttpServer.create(new InetSocketAddress(3030), 0);
server.createContext("/test", new MyHandler());
server.setExecutor(null); // creates a default executor
System.out.println("starting"); server.start();

static class MyHandler implements HttpHandler {
public void handle(HttpExchange exchange) throws IOException {
String response = "finished";
exchange.sendResponseHeaders(200, response.length());
OutputStream os = exchange.getResponseBody();
System.out.println("uri is " + exchange.getRequestURI());
