I am going to dynamically create local branches(like Hotfix_Test1, Hotfix_Test2 each at different time) and push it to remote.
These branches should contain the source available in a branch called Release which is another local.
Release is already pushed to remote from local using git commands
git checkout -b Release git push
git push --set-upstream origin Release
I create a git object and trying the following code to create hotfix branches dynamically.

Kindly check the java file attached

when the execution comes to this line
it is throwing exception

java.lang.IllegalStateException: Command org.eclipse.jgit.api.CreateBranchCommand was called in the wrong state
i dont know wats the mistake. Kindly help with the error.

You have one instance of CreateBranchCommand but you are trying to call call() multiple times. That's not supported. Each instance of a Command should only be used for one invocation. Do something like:

           /* Creating Hotfix Branch */
           git.branchCreate().setName("hotfix_" + releaseVersion).call();

             * Pushing Hotfix Branch to remote note that the hotfix is not present in remote
            pushCommand = git.push().setRemote("origin").setRefSpecs(new RefSpec("hotfix_" + releaseVersion + ":hotfix_" + releaseVersion)).call();

            /* Trying to set upstream for newly created hotfix branch */
            git.branchCreate().setUpstreamMode(SetupUpstreamMode.SET_UPSTREAM).setStartPoint("origin/" + "hotfix_" + releaseVersion).createBranchCommand.setForce(true).call();
