AngularJS Question

Angularjs - Spring MVC Rest : how to handle exceptions

I am developping an single page app with angularjs and Spring Mcv Rest.

I am calling my service (mail sending with javax mail) like that in Angularjs :


And on server side my service :

@RequestMapping(value = "/sendProformaFax/{idCommande}",
method = RequestMethod.GET,
produces = MediaType.APPLICATION_JSON_VALUE)
public void imprimeProforma(@PathVariable String idCommande) {
Commande commande = commandeRepository.findOne(new Long(idCommande));
List<Vente> ventes = venteRepository.findAllByCommande(commande);

I would like to display a message when the function sendProformaFax throws a MessagingException.

I don't know how to return this exception in my RestController and how to catch it in Angularjs.

If anyone can help me on this...


On server side I am doing this :

@ExceptionHandler(value = Exception.class)
public ErrorView defaultErrorHandler(HttpServletRequest req, Exception e) throws Exception {
// If the exception is annotated with @ResponseStatus rethrow it and let
// the framework handle it - like the OrderNotFoundException example
// at the start of this post.
// AnnotationUtils is a Spring Framework utility class.
if (AnnotationUtils.findAnnotation(e.getClass(), ResponseStatus.class) != null)
throw e;

// Otherwise setup and send the user to a default error-view.
ErrorView mav = new ErrorView();
mav.setMessage("Veuillez contacter le support informatique.");
return mav;

On Angularjs side I am doing this

CreateFichierCiel.get({params:param}, function (response) {
$scope.infoMessage = "La génération du fichier CIEL est terminée."
}, function (reason) {

But 'reason' object is like this :

config: Object data: Object error: "Internal Server Error" exception:
"java.lang.NullPointerException" message: "No message available" path:
"/api/createFichierCiel/15-00005" status: 500 timestamp: 1438430232307
proto: Object headers: function (name) { status: 500 statusText:
"Internal Server Error" proto: Object

So I am not getting the ErrorView class sent from the server.
If anyone can see where I am wrong here...



You can make ExceptionHandler for MessagingException and set HTTPStatus to indicate that response has an error (egz. BAD_REQUEST)

public ErrorView handleMessagingException(MessagingException ex) {
    // do something with exception and return view

In AngularJS you can catch it from resource service like this:

MessagingService.get({idCommande: 1}, function (data) {
// this is success
}, function (reason) {
// this is failure, you can check if this is a BAD_REQUEST and parse response from exception handler

It almost the same when you use $http.
