Trouble using PubNub’s herenow (java object)

I have included the Pubnub-4.0.0.jar file into my webroot. (Pubnub-4.0.0.jar can be downloaded here:

I am trying to get the “HERE NOW” java code into my coldfusion project and am having some trouble in doing so.

The java code is as follows:

PNConfiguration pnConfiguration = new PNConfiguration();
PubNub pubnub = new PubNub(pnConfiguration);
    .channels(Arrays.asList("ch1", "ch2", "ch3")) // who is present on those channels?
    .includeState(true) // include state with request (false by default)
    .includeUUIDs(true) // if false, only shows occupancy count
    .async(new PNCallback<PNHereNowResult>() {
        public void onResponse(PNHereNowResult result, PNStatus status) {


My corresponding Coldfusion code is as follows:

<cfobject type="java" class="com.pubnub.api.PNConfiguration" name="objPNConfiguration" >
<cfset PNConfiguration = objPNConfiguration.init() >
<cfset PNConfiguration.setSubscribeKey("SubscribeKey") >
<cfobject type="java" class="com.pubnub.api.PubNub" name="objPubNub" >
<cfset pubnub = objPubNub.init(PNConfiguration) >
<cfset tmp = pubnub.hereNow({channels: "5A4B3B59-FA6A-F22A-404F18EFA8112508"}) >
<cfdump var="#tmp#" >

I do not get any errors returned. I feel the way in which I am calling the “hereNow” method is incorrect or the way in which I am trying to display the results is incorrect.

Can anyone provide any assistance with regards to this? Thanks


Pubnub provided a REST API call for this. Thankyou Pubnub.
