Java Question

How to read InputStream multiple times

I have this code:

@Override
public void doFilter(ServletRequest request, ServletResponse response, FilterChain chain)
throws IOException, ServletException {
logger.info("Filter start...");

HttpServletRequest httpRequest = (HttpServletRequest) request;
HttpServletResponse httpResponse = (HttpServletResponse) response;

String ba = getBaId(getBody(httpRequest));

if (ba == null) {
logger.error("Wrong XML");
httpResponse.setStatus(HttpServletResponse.SC_BAD_REQUEST);
} else {

if (!clients.containsKey(ba)) {
clients.put(ba, 1);
logger.info("Client map : init...");
} else {
clients.put(ba, clients.get(ba).intValue() + 1);
logger.info("Threads for " + ba + " = " + clients.get(ba).toString());
}

chain.doFilter(request, response);
}
}


and this web.xml (packages are shortened and names changed, but it looks the same)

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1"?>
<web-app>
<filter>
<filter-name>TestFilter</filter-name>
<filter-class>pkg.TestFilter</filter-class>
</filter>
<filter-mapping>
<filter-name>TestFilter</filter-name>
<url-pattern>/*</url-pattern>
</filter-mapping>

<context-param>
<param-name>contextConfigLocation</param-name>
<param-value>WEB-INF/applicationContext.xml</param-value>
</context-param>

<listener>
<listener-class>org.springframework.web.context.ContextLoaderListener</listener-class>
</listener>

<servlet>
<servlet-name>Name</servlet-name>
<display-name>Name</display-name>
<servlet-class>pkg.Name</servlet-class>
<load-on-startup>1</load-on-startup>
</servlet>
<servlet-mapping>
<servlet-name>Name</servlet-name>
<url-pattern>/services/*</url-pattern>
</servlet-mapping>
</web-app>


I want to invoke the Servlet after the Filter. I was hoping
chain.doFilter(...)
could do the trick, but i always get this error on the line with
chain.doFilter(...)
:

Answer

You probably start consuming the HttpServletRequest using getReader() in :

String ba = getBaId(getBody(httpRequest)); 

Your servlet tries to call getInputStream() on the same request, which is not allowed. What you need to do is use a ServletRequestWrapper to make a copy of the body of the request, so you can read it with multiple methods. I dont have the time to find a complete example right know ... sorry ...
