Integrating with the calculator

Calculating costs for a service and raising demand for bill generation


The calculation class will contain the calculation logic for the birth certificate registration charges. This can vary from city to city. Based on the application submitted, the calculator class will calculate the tax/charges and call the billing service to generate the demand.
What is a demand?
A demand is the official communication sent by a government authority to a citizen requesting them to pay for a service. A demand leads to a bill. When a bill is paid, a receipt is generated. A demand can be modified prior to bill generation.
For our guide, we are going to create a CalculationService that will call the calculator to generate a demand. For this, we are going to perform the following steps -
i) Create a class under service folder by the name of CalculationService
ii) Now, annotate this class with @Service annotation and add the following logic within it -
package digit.service;
import com.fasterxml.jackson.databind.ObjectMapper;
import digit.config.BTRConfiguration;
import digit.repository.ServiceRequestRepository;
import digit.web.models.*;
import org.springframework.beans.factory.annotation.Autowired;
import org.springframework.stereotype.Service;
import java.util.ArrayList;
import java.util.List;
public class CalculationService {
private BTRConfiguration btrConfiguration;
private ObjectMapper mapper;
private ServiceRequestRepository serviceRequestRepository;
public CalculationRes getCalculation(BirthRegistrationRequest request){
List<CalculationCriteria> calculationCriteriaList = new ArrayList<>();
for(BirthRegistrationApplication application : request.getBirthRegistrationApplications()) {
CalculationCriteria calculationCriteria = CalculationCriteria.builder()
CalculationReq calculationReq = CalculationReq.builder()
StringBuilder url = new StringBuilder().append(btrConfiguration.getBtrCalculatorHost())
Object response = serviceRequestRepository.fetchResult(url, calculationReq);
CalculationRes calculationRes = mapper.convertValue(response, CalculationRes.class);
return calculationRes;
