My Eclipse project is suddenly no longer deploying properly. I can't trace it to any particular change I've made to the environment.

I have tested with multiple source-controlled projects and they are all behaving the same way:

This seems like the key component: INFO: No Spring WebApplicationInitializer types detected on classpath.

I've tried cleaning the projects, redefining the servers, and even creating whole new workspaces. I've clearly missed the mark.

Any tips on getting this cleaned up would be greatly appreciated.

This turned out to be a stupid error. My log4j wasn't configured to capture my error output. I was throwing configuration errors in the background and once I fixed those I was good to go and my request mappings worked fine.

The presentation layer contains views and controllers.
You must not mistake an MVC architecture for a multitier/layer architecture (especially a 3-tier architecture). Most of the time Model/View/Controller is not the primary design of a web application, it is just a subset of a multitier/layer architecture.

Take a look at this oversimplified scheme (you could have the DAOs in a dedicated Data Access Layer, but this is not important in this post) :

Simplified layers

Spring MVC is a presentation framework : it deals with controllers and views. But why the "M" in Spring MVC ? Just because, as many other presentation framework, it naturally deals with a representation of a model/entity ("M"). This representation is the one used in your controllers, displayed in your views, submitted in your forms, etc. That's why the framework is called Spring MVC, even if the model/entity is not part of the prensentation layer.

I think it is a good name for this Framework, because it is really "MVC" oriented. Indeed the representation of a model/entity can be :

  • direct : the framework directly handles the model/entity object
  • indirect : the framework handles a form object or DTO, that contains information related to one or multiple entities

Spring's recommendation is to directly use the model/entity ("M") object :

Reusable business code, no need for duplication. Use existing business objects as command or form objects instead of mirroring them to extend a particular framework base class.

That's why I say the framework is very "MVC" oriented, compared to others, like Struts, where you have to use different form objects.

The reason for that is pretty simple: the relation names for associated entities are derived from the property names of the containing class. So both PersonDetails and PersonChildren want to create an outbound link to a Person named person. If we rendered that, it would look something like this

{ _links : { 
   person : { href : … }, <- the one from PersonDetails
   person : { href : … }  <- the one from PersonChildren
}

This is of course invalid. Also, lining up the two links in an array would not allow you to distinguish between the two links anymore (which one is coming from PersonDetails and which one is coming from PersonChildren.

So there are a few options here:

  1. Manually name the relations of those types. You can annotate the Person properties with @RestResource and configure the rel attribute of the annotation to something different than person.
  2. You want any of the two not exported at all. The very same annotation can be used to prevent the link from being rendered at all. Simply set the exported flag in @RestResource to false and the link will not be rendered. This might be useful if the pointer e.g. from PersonDetails is just relevant within the code, but actually not in a JSON representation.

After a quick look into Spring sources this should work:

request.setUserPrincipal(somePrincipal);
