If you want to debug the test case, you can use -Dmaven.surefire.debug property

Root cause of getting 404 error when do rest call to google places apis

When we do call any rest api starting with https://maps.googleapis.com(ex: google location api) from an application other than a normal browser I observed we are getting 404 error message as the response. 

What we can do to prevent this

Add host: maps.googleapis.comparameter to the request header when application send rest call to that api

In WSO2 ESB we can use below property before send mediator. It will add above parameter to request header when ESB send rest call to maps.googleapis.com.

<property name="REQUEST_HOST_HEADER" value="maps.googleapis.com" scope="axis2"></property>
