Accessing HttpServletRequest from AOP advice in Spring 2.5 with annotations

Accessing HttpServletRequest from AOP advice in Spring 2.5 with annotations

I have tried to find the answer to this question on both the Spring forum and by searching StackOverflow. I have found a lot of pages describing horrible architectures and asking for about the same thing as I do, but my intended usage is different so please bear with me :-)

I have a Spring 2.5 project using annotation based form controllers basically like this:

@RequestMapping("/edit/someObject") public String handleSubmit(HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response, SomeObject someObject, BindingResult result) {      // Some check here      if(result.hasErrors()) {         return "form";     } else {         SomeObjectService.update(someObject);         return "redirect:/view/someObject";     } } 

In this I check for some http property in the HttpServletRequest and use the HttpServletResponse to send a redirect if this property has a certain value. This check is done is a lot (but not all) of the form controllers in this application. What I would like to do is create a @CheckedSubmit annotation handled by some AOP advice to do this check and then drop the HttpServletRequest and HttpServletResponse parameters from the controller.

My problem is that I have no idea how to access the current HttpServletRequest and HttpServletResponse from this AOP advice without using these two as (unused) parameters to the annotated method, which is what I tried to avoid in the first place.

Summary: How to access the HttpServletRequest/Response from AOP advice on an @RequestMapping annotated method?

Two solutions for the summary but not for your entire problem (completely).

Solution 1: inside advice (>= Spring 2.0 required).
Which framework to choose?
HttpServletRequest request = ((ServletRequestAttributes) RequestContextHolder 		.getRequestAttributes()).getRequest(); 
Solution 2: inside aspect class (probably Spring 3.0 inside singelton beans required!).
Resource Bundle Spring
@Autowired(required=true) private HttpServletRequest request;

I think you probably know this already, but the "official" was to do this in Spring MVS is to use HandlerInterceptors.

They're not annotation-driven, but they do get inserted into the HTTP control flow, and get full access to the request and response..
