Getting all branches with JGit

How can I get all branches in a repository with JGit?
Let’s take an example repository. As we can see, it has 5 branches.
Here I found this example:

int c = 0;
List<Ref> call = new Git(repository).branchList().call();
for (Ref ref : call) {
    System.out.println("Branch: " + ref + " " + ref.getName() + " "
            + ref.getObjectId().getName());
System.out.println("Number of branches: " + c);

But all I get is this:

  • I cloned a git repository. How do I pull from it into a working directory?
  • Git error fatal: unable to stat '*': No such file or directory
  • git repository browsing
  • How to enter command with password for git pull?
  • Redo merge of just a single file
  • git commit and push to branch but not to pull request
  • Branch: Ref[refs/heads/master=d766675da9e6bf72f09f320a92b48fa529ffefdc] refs/heads/master d766675da9e6bf72f09f320a92b48fa529ffefdc
    Number of branches: 1
    Branch: master

  • Git-windows case sensitive file names not handled properly

    If it is the remote branches that you are missing, you have to set the ListMode of the ListBranchCommand to ALL or REMOTE. The default ListMode (null) returns only local branches.

    new Git( repository ).branchList().setListMode( ListMode.ALL ).call();
