[resolved] Dynamic REST URL with appended variable

My issue is with the URL path concerning the tREST component.
I want to be able to append a variable to the URL path which changes each time.
For example, I have a database with multiple rows and need to pass the id of the row as the last parameter in the url.
something along these lines: "http://localhost:8080/People-api/Person/"+ (Integer)globalMap.get(\"person_id\")
Is this possible?? Each record has a different person_id value so this URL needs to change with each call. Not sure how to resolve a value from a Java variable in the URL, nor if the escape character (\) would work properly there.

Thanks

I was able to make it work, simply by doing:
"http://localhost:8080/People-api/Person/"+ ((Integer)globalMap.get("person_id"))
Sometimes talend is very particular so its a lot of trial and error.
