Java Question

Maven cannot be cast to javax.servlet.Filter

I'm beginning to develope a project using maven but when I launch it it say that my Filter cannot be cast to javax.servle.Filter.

This is the exception:

GRAVE: Exception starting filter FilterLogin
java.lang.ClassCastException: it.tgi.cd.servlet.FilterLogin cannot be cast to javax.servlet.Filter

and this is my pom.xml

Why I'm getting this error?

FilteLogin

package it.tgi.cd.servlet;

import javax.servlet.*;
import javax.servlet.annotation.WebFilter;
import javax.servlet.http.HttpServletRequest;
import javax.servlet.http.HttpServletResponse;
import java.io.IOException;


@WebFilter(urlPatterns = {"/index.jsp", "/insert.jsp", "/search.jsp", "/addSongs.jsp", "/delete.jsp"}, filterName = "FilterLogin")
public class FilterLogin implements javax.servlet.Filter {
public void destroy() {
}

public void doFilter(ServletRequest req, ServletResponse resp, FilterChain chain) throws ServletException, IOException {

HttpServletRequest request = (HttpServletRequest) req;
HttpServletResponse response = (HttpServletResponse) resp;
if(request.getSession().getAttribute("user") != null) {
chain.doFilter(req, resp);
} else {
response.sendRedirect("/login.jsp");
}
}

public void init(FilterConfig config) throws ServletException {
}

}


I used "provide" as suggested and the exception disappear but now when I try to go to "localhost ecc.." there is an exception

I don't know if it is normal but it remainsstuck on "INFORMAZIONI: Starting ProtocolHandler ["http-bio-8080"]"

Then I go to the localhost and the exception disappears.

Under WEB-INF/lib I didn't have any jar file.
This is my build path

Answer Source

1) Add the servlet dependency in pom.xml as below:

<dependency>
   <groupId>javax.servlet</groupId>
   <artifactId>javax.servlet-api</artifactId>
   <version>3.0.1</version>
   <scope>provided</scope>
</dependency>

2) Make sure that your classpath is not populated with multiple different versions of javax.servlet.Filter classes.
Check for servlet-api.jar does exists in /WEB-INF/libfolder. you must add the dependency either in pom.xml or in your build-path.
