It was discovered that the developer's java API was not passing the required authorization header in the format "Basic [account number]:[license Key]"  More documentation on how to format a RESTful web service request  can be located here:



Developer was making RESTful Web service GET requests bypassing the required Authorization string. This resulted in an HTTP 200 (success) however no results were returned.
