Java – Spring 4 Exception Handling : No suitable resolver for argument

javaspringspring-4spring-mvc

Problem Statement

Migration to Spring 4 from Spring 3 induces some exceptions in exception handling flow.
The Exception says No suitable resolver for argument in the org.springframework.web.method.support.InvocableHandlerMethod class.

So whenever and exception occurs Spring tries to find the Exception Handler which it gets
but when it tries to populate the method arguments or exception Handler it throws the below exception

Failed to invoke @ExceptionHandler method:

  public org.springframework.web.servlet.ModelAndView  
       HelloController.handleCustomException(CustomGenericException, javax.servlet.http.HttpServletRequest, org.springframework.web.servlet.ModelAndView)

  java.lang.IllegalStateException: 
     No suitable resolver for argument [2] 
             [type=org.springframework.web.servlet.ModelAndView]

HandlerMethod details:

Controller [HelloController]
Method [public org.springframework.web.servlet.ModelAndView  
        HelloController.handleCustomException(CustomGenericException,
            javax.servlet.http.HttpServletRequest,org.springframework.web.servlet.ModelAndView)]
        at org.springframework.web.method.support.InvocableHandlerMethod.getMethodArgumentValues(
                     InvocableHandlerMethod.java:169)

It basically comes for @CRequestParam("p") String p variable

Code

Controller

@RequestMapping(method = RequestMethod.GET, value="/exception2")
    public String getException1(ModelMap model, @CRequestParam("p") String p) {

        System.out.println("Exception 2 "+ p);
        throw new CustomGenericException("1","2");
    }

Exception Handler

@ExceptionHandler(CustomGenericException.class)
    public ModelAndView handleCustomException(CustomGenericException ex, 
            HttpServletRequest request, @CRequestParam("p") String p) {

            ModelAndView model = new ModelAndView("error/generic_error");
            model.addObject("exception", ex);
            System.out.println("CustomGenericException  ");
            return model;
    }

Annotations

@Target( { ElementType.PARAMETER })
@Retention(RetentionPolicy.RUNTIME)
@Documented
public @interface CRequestParam {
    String value() default "";
}

Param Resolver

public class CRequestparamResolver implements HandlerMethodArgumentResolver {


    @Override
        public boolean supportsParameter(MethodParameter methodParameter) {
          CRequestParam requestParamAnnotation = 
          methodParameter.getParameterAnnotation(CRequestParam.class);
        if(requestParamAnnotation==null){
        return false;
        }
        return true;
        }

    @Override
    public Object resolveArgument(MethodParameter methodParameter,
        ModelAndViewContainer mavContainer, NativeWebRequest webRequest,
        WebDataBinderFactory binderFactory) throws Exception {

    CRequestParam requestParamAnnotation = methodParameter .getParameterAnnotation(CRequestParam.class);

    if (requestParamAnnotation != null) {
        String requestParamName = requestParamAnnotation.value();
        if (StringUtils.hasText(requestParamName)) {
        return webRequest.getParameter(requestParamName);
        }
    }
    return null;
  }

XML Configuration

<bean
        class="com.mkyong.common.resolver.AnnotationMethodHandlerAdapterConfigurer"
        init-method="init">
        <property name="customArgumentResolvers">
            <list>
                <bean class="com.mkyong.common.resolver.CRequestparamResolver" />
            </list>
        </property>
    </bean>

    <bean

Best Solution

Solved the problem by passing the custom arguments in request itself.

code is as below :

Controller

@RequestMapping(method = RequestMethod.GET, value = "/exception2")
public String getException1(ModelMap model, @CRequestParam("p") String p, HttpServletRequest request) {

  System.out.println("Exception 2 " + p);
  request.setAttribute("p", p);
  throw new CustomGenericException("1", "2");
}

Exception Handler

@ExceptionHandler(CustomGenericException.class)
public ModelAndView handleCustomException(CustomGenericException ex, HttpServletRequest request) {

  ModelAndView model2 = new ModelAndView("error/generic_error");
  model2.addObject("exception", ex);
  System.out.println(request.getAttribute("p"));
  System.out.println("CustomGenericException  ");
  return model2;

}
