Java Question

I keep getting this error: There was an unexpected error (type=Not Found, status=404)

I am going through this book on restful web services with spring. I decided to move away from what they were doing and use java configuration files. For some reason, after switching over to the Java configuration, the service would run (in the console window) correctly but when I actually go to the endpoint on localhost i get this:


White label Error Page

This application has no explicit mapping for /error, so you are seeing
this as a fallback.

Sat Apr 23 20:48:25 PDT 2016 There was an unexpected error (type=Not
Found, status=404). No message available


And this is the response from the GET request:

{
"timestamp": 1461470029110,
"status": 404,
"error": "Not Found",
"message": "No message available",
"path": "/greeting"
}


The next chapter of this story begins with me going to the getting started page on the Spring website http://spring.io/guides/gs/rest-service/ I decided to start a small project recreating their basic tutorial. I will post the code I wrote below for you to see. The problem is, I am having the exact same issue. The service runs but I can't hit the endpoints. I am not sure what is going on and I have seen others with similar issues, but the answers have not applied/helped with mine. I am sure it is something obvious that I am doing wrong and any help would be greatly appreciated. One last piece of information, if at all relevant, I am using IntelliJ IDEA 15 CE as my IDE.

The endpoint being hit:

http://localhost:8080/greeting

My controller

@RestController
public class GreetingController
{
private static final String template = "Hello, %s!";
private final AtomicLong counter = new AtomicLong();

@RequestMapping("/greeting")
public Greeting greeting(@RequestParam(value = "name", defaultValue = "World")String name)
{
return new Greeting(counter.incrementAndGet(), String.format(template, name));
}
}


My Resource Representation class

public class Greeting
{
private final long id;
private final String content;

public Greeting(long id, String content)
{
this.id = id;
this.content = content;
}

public long getId()
{
return id;
}

public String getContent()
{
return content;
}
}


My Main

@SpringBootApplication
public class Application
{
public static void main(String[] args)
{
SpringApplication.run(Application.class, args);
}
}

Thanks again for any help you can offer. I will keep everyone posted with updates!

Answer

I believe you issue is related to packages. Your application is defined in com.trammel.webservices.application. I am guessing your other classes are in a different package that is not a child of com.trammel.webservices.application. Spring will automatically load controllers that are in the same package or sub-packages, for example:

com.trammel.webservices.application
com.trammel.webservices.application.controllers

But not packages like this:

com.trammel.webservices.controllers

You can fix this by either moving your controller (or application), or adding ComponentScan to your Application:

@SpringBootApplication
@ComponentScan(basePackageClasses=GreetingController.class)
public class Application {

You should be seeing this in your log:

 Mapped "{[/greeting]}" onto public com.trammel.webservices.xxx.Greeting com.trammel.webservices.xxx.GreetingController.greeting(java.lang.String)
