Importing the SocialUtils using @Reference annotation causing servlet status is unsatisfied


Former Community Member

Hi folks,

When I am importing the SocialUtils using @Reference annotation servlet status is unsatisfied in component list.


private SocialUtils socialUtils;

getting this message

Reference socialUtils["Unsatisfied","Service Name: com.adobe.cq.social.ugcbase.SocialUtils","Cardinality: 1..1","Policy: static","Policy Option: reluctant","No Services bound"]

But I can see the SocialUtilsImpl is enabled and in the component list also.



Really appreciate any inputs..

Hi Kanchan,

Can you share the entire code with me?

You can email it to vmitra@adobe.com. It's a but difficult to debug the same with the information that you have provided.

Hi varunmitra,

Thanks for the reply. I am pasting the code here.

import java.io.IOException;

import javax.servlet.ServletException;

import javax.servlet.http.Cookie;

import org.apache.felix.scr.annotations.Reference;

import org.apache.felix.scr.annotations.ReferenceCardinality;

import org.apache.felix.scr.annotations.ReferencePolicy;

import org.apache.felix.scr.annotations.sling.SlingServlet;

import org.apache.sling.api.SlingHttpServletRequest;

import org.apache.sling.api.SlingHttpServletResponse;

import org.apache.sling.api.servlets.SlingSafeMethodsServlet;

import org.apache.sling.commons.json.JSONException;

import org.apache.sling.commons.json.JSONObject;

import org.apache.sling.jcr.api.SlingRepository;

import org.slf4j.Logger;

import org.slf4j.LoggerFactory;

import com.adobe.cq.social.ugcbase.SocialUtils;

@SlingServlet(paths = "/bin/socialcloud.json", methods = {"GET"}, extensions = {"json" })

public class SocialIntegrationServlet extends SlingSafeMethodsServlet{




  private static final long serialVersionUID = 6999713032167059980L;




  private static final Logger log = LoggerFactory.getLogger(SocialIntegrationServlet.class);

  @Reference(cardinality = ReferenceCardinality.MANDATORY_UNARY, policy = ReferencePolicy.STATIC)

    private SlingRepository repository;


  private SocialUtils socialUtils;


  protected void doGet(SlingHttpServletRequest request,

  SlingHttpServletResponse response) throws ServletException,

  IOException {

  //log.info("socialUtils is::::::::"+socialUtils);

  String sUsername = request.getParameter("user");

  Cookie[] cookies = request.getCookies();

  try {




         JSONObject result = new JSONObject();

         result.put("result", "Got your call");



  } catch (JSONException e) {





If I am removing the @Reference SocialUtils then the servlet is working properly.
