Spring Boot: ClassNotFoundException when configuring maxUploadSize of CommonMultipartResolver

I'm using Spring Boot for my web application and I'm trying to configure the maxUploadSize of Spring's CommonMultipartResolver. Currently, it seems to be limited by a Spring (?) default size of 1 MB. The upload is done through a REST interface, and the method signature looks like this:

@RequestMapping(value = "/upload", method = RequestMethod.POST)
public void uploadFile(@RequestParam("file") MultipartFile file, HttpServletRequest request)


Everytime I try to upload a bigger file, a FileSizeLimitExceededException is thrown:

org.apache.tomcat.util.http.fileupload.FileUploadBase$FileSizeLimitExceededException: The field file exceeds its maximum permitted size of 1048576 bytes.

Things I have tried, but did not work:



Setting Tomcat properties



Since my web app is running on Tomcat (not the embedded one, but a separate external one), I tried configuring the size by changing the Tomcat configuration as is described here. Unfortunately, this has no effect, as the max upload size still remains at 1 MB.

Configuring Spring's CommonMultipartResolver by annotation



Since the value of 1MB seems to come from the CommonMultipartResolver (I can see that the value of 1MB is set when debugging), I tried configuring Spring via annotation like this:

@Configuration
public class CoreConfig {

@Bean
public CommonsMultipartResolver commonsMultipartResolver() {
CommonsMultipartResolver multipartResolver = new CommonsMultipartResolver();
multipartResolver.setMaxUploadSize(50 * 1024 * 1024);
return multipartResolver;
}

}


But when I start up Tomcat, the following exception is thrown:

Caused by: java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/apache/commons/fileupload/FileItemFactory
at myapp.server.CoreConfig.commonsMulipartResolver(CoreConfig.java:40)

Configuration via XML



Instead of an annotation-driven configuration, I tried a configuration via XML similar to this posting, but I'm getting the same ClassNotFoundException as above.

Answer

You are making it way to complex.

Just add multipart.maxFileSize to your application.properties file and well that is it. No need to use xml or explicitly define a MultipartResolver.

multipart.maxFileSize=10Mb   

This is explained in the section about file uploads in the Spring Boot Reference Guide.

For all properties chekc the MultipartProperties class. The other properties supported are multipart.location, multipart.maxRequestSize and multipart.fileSizeThreshold.

The ClassNotFoundException is due to the fact that Spring Boot uses the default Servlet 3.0 support for file uploads NOT commons-fileupload. So if you want to use that, you would have to explicitly add the dependency for it. And ofcourse the multipart.* properties don't work anymore in that case.
