require 'chilkat'

# Note: Requires Chilkat v9.5.0.65 or greater.

# This requires the Chilkat API to have been previously unlocked.
# See Global Unlock Sample for sample code.

# Load our previously obtained access token. (see PayPal OAuth2 Access Token)
jsonToken = Chilkat::CkJsonObject.new()
jsonToken.LoadFile("qa_data/tokens/paypal.json")

# Build the Authorization request header field value.
sbAuth = Chilkat::CkStringBuilder.new()
# token_type should be "Bearer"
sbAuth.Append(jsonToken.stringOf("token_type"))
sbAuth.Append(" ")
sbAuth.Append(jsonToken.stringOf("access_token"))

# Make the initial connection.
# A single REST object, once connected, can be used for many PayPal REST API calls.
# The auto-reconnect indicates that if the already-established HTTPS connection is closed,
# then it will be automatically re-established as needed.
rest = Chilkat::CkRest.new()
bAutoReconnect = true
success = rest.Connect("api.sandbox.paypal.com",443,true,bAutoReconnect)
if (success != true)
    print rest.lastErrorText() + "\n";
    exit
end

# ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
# The code above this comment could be placed inside a function/subroutine within the application
# because the connection does not need to be made for every request.  Once the connection is made
# the app may send many requests..
# ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

# Build the JSON request body containing the reminder information:
json = Chilkat::CkJsonObject.new()
json.put_EmitCompact(false)
json.UpdateString("subject","Past due")
json.UpdateString("note","Canceling invoice")
json.UpdateBool("send_to_merchant",true)
json.UpdateBool("send_to_payer",true)
print json.emit() + "\n";

# The JSON created by the above code:

# 	{ 
# 	  "subject": "Past due",
# 	  "note": "Canceling invoice",
# 	  "send_to_merchant": true,
# 	  "send_to_payer": true
# 	}

# Build a path using a previously-sent invoice ID.
sbPath = Chilkat::CkStringBuilder.new()
sbPath.Append("/v1/invoicing/invoices/invoice_id/cancel")
numReplacements = sbPath.Replace("invoice_id","INV2-XPWZ-NUTQ-LNWB-P8NC")

json.put_EmitCompact(true)
sbRequestBody = Chilkat::CkStringBuilder.new()
sbResponseBody = Chilkat::CkStringBuilder.new()

rest.AddHeader("Content-Type","application/json")
rest.AddHeader("Authorization",sbAuth.getAsString())
json.EmitSb(sbRequestBody)

success = rest.FullRequestSb("POST",sbPath.getAsString(),sbRequestBody,sbResponseBody)
if (success != true)
    print rest.lastErrorText() + "\n";
    exit
end

print "Response Status Code = " + rest.get_ResponseStatusCode().to_s() + "\n";

# In our testing, we received a 204 response, which is a success HTTP response code, but 
# differs from the PayPal REST API reference documentation, which states that a 202 response
# is expected.  I suspect an error in the PayPal documentation, or in the PayPal responder.
# Check for either 202 or 204..
# Did we get a 202 accepted response?
if ((rest.get_ResponseStatusCode() != 202) and (rest.get_ResponseStatusCode() != 204))
    print sbResponseBody.getAsString() + "\n";
    print "Failed." + "\n";
    exit
end

# The 202/204 response should be empty.  (Again, our experience differs from the online PayPal documentation..)
print "Success." + "\n";
