Hi everyone.
For a university project I have to retrieve all the bugs associated to
a product with a certain state .

I'm tring since two days using Java apache xmlrpc libraries for
accessing the webservice "Bug.search" ...

Can somebody help me with this task? It should be simple but I'm
loosing a lot of time and the deadline is approaching.... I read every
post related to Java and Webservice , asked on IRC , googled  but I
didn't figure it out.

Are there any example of Java calls to the "Bug.search" procedure?

Let say I want to get all the bugs associated to the product "P", that
have 'status' = RESOLVED,CLOSED, or VERIFIED
and 'resolution' different from

How should my Hasmap being created?
How should I call the client.execute?

Thank you, any help is deeply appreciated


XmlRpcClientConfigImpl  config = new XmlRpcClientConfigImpl();
		config.setServerURL(new URL("https://BUGZILLAURL/xmlrpc.cgi"));

		XmlRpcClient client = new XmlRpcClient();

		Map map = new HashMap();

		map.put("login","leg at lize.it");
               //IS that really needed for my purpose?

		Map result = (Map) client.execute("Bug.search",  new Object[]
{map});  // What should i write here?

		System.out.println("Result = "+result);
