How to get data from databroker?

I have checked the wiki of the ODL, but still don't know how to deal with it, So I came to ask your help. I have checked the inside of the databroker and known that we could use "read" to get the information.

    String TargetURI = input.getTargetURI(); // get a String type URI,
    ReadTransaction getAccessID = dataService.newReadOnlyTransaction();
    InstanceIdentifier<CSEBase> target = InstanceIdentifier.keyOf(TargetURI);//?????????????? how to translate string to InstanceIdentifier?
    ListenableFuture<Optional<CSEBase>> readtarget =, target);

I tried this way, of course it did not work, my question is how to get the data from a known path? Or how to translate string to InstanceIdentifier? After that, how can I use the returned datatype?

To read from the DataBroker you create an instance identifier using InstanceIdentifer.builder(). To this method and the chained methods you would provide the class names which represent the different levels you want to read from.

Check out this section in the Toaster example for some examples:

That link also provides some examples now how to read from the broker / write to it and provides best practices for handing async requests.

For more complex InstanceIdentifier examples, check out (BindingAware version).
