Java – Spring MVC testframework fails with HTTP Response 406

javamodel-view-controllerspringtesting

I started to use the new MVC Testframework of Spring 3.2 and got stuck with getting 406 HTTP Response Codes for all my test cases.

The testcase is plain simple

public class LocationResouceTest {

    @Autowired
    private WebApplicationContext wac;

    private MockMvc mockMvc;

    @Before
    public void setup() {
        this.mockMvc = MockMvcBuilders.webAppContextSetup(this.wac).build();
    }

    @Test
    public void testGetLocationByPlzPattern() throws Exception {
        // here I need to define the media type as a static var from MediaType
        this.mockMvc.perform(get("/someurl?someparam=somevalue")).andExpect(status().isOk());
    }

}

the corresponding resource is

@Controller
// here I need to define the media type as string
@RequestMapping(value = "/someurl", produces = "application/json; charset=UTF-8")
public class LocationResource {

    @ResponseBody
    @RequestMapping(method = RequestMethod.GET)
    public ArrayList<DTO> getAllIndex(@RequestParam("someparam") String param) {
        return ... //the list of DTO classes is transformed to json just fine if called with curl
    }

}

I am sure it is because of a wrong media type but I cannot figure out why.

Best Solution

If you have a @Configuration class, you can add the @EnableWebMvc annotation instead of using an XML configuration with <mvc:annotation-driven />.
