SlingHttpServletRequest returning null when using Jackson Exporter

Hi,

Im using SlingHttpServletRequest in my sling model class with jackson exporter. But the request object is always returning null. Can anyone help me on this.

 

@Model(adaptables = {SlingHttpServletRequest.class,Resource.class}, resourceType = { "sample/components/content/example_comp" }, defaultInjectionStrategy = DefaultInjectionStrategy.OPTIONAL)
@exporter(name = "jackson", extensions = "json")
public class EESimWizardConfigModel {

 

@inject
SlingHttpServletRequest request;

 

@inject
private HashMap<String, String> productFamilyDetails;

 

public Map<String, String> getProductFamilyDetails() {
         if (request != null) {

             //then do something

         }

 

}

The problem is that you allow the model from being adapted from both the request and the resource, and on top of the injected request is optional.

That means, that it is very likely that the behind the scenes the adaption is not done by the request, but rather by the resource, and that the request field is not injected at all.

Hi @maheswariv26797 

 

Can you try with @SlingObject instead of @Inject once ?

 

@SlingObject

private SlingHttpServletRequest request;

Hi @maheswariv26797 

 

I just tried with the below code and it works for me:

 

import org.apache.sling.api.SlingHttpServletRequest;
import org.apache.sling.api.resource.Resource;
import org.apache.sling.models.annotations.DefaultInjectionStrategy;
import org.apache.sling.models.annotations.Exporter;
import org.apache.sling.models.annotations.Model;
import org.apache.sling.models.annotations.injectorspecific.SlingObject;
import org.apache.sling.models.annotations.injectorspecific.ValueMapValue;
import org.slf4j.Logger;
import org.slf4j.LoggerFactory;

import javax.annotation.PostConstruct;
import javax.inject.Named;

@Model(adaptables = {SlingHttpServletRequest.class, Resource.class}, resourceType = {"weretail/components/content/heroimage"}, defaultInjectionStrategy = DefaultInjectionStrategy.OPTIONAL)
@Exporter(name = "jackson", extensions = "json")
public class TestModel {

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

@ValueMapValue
String buttonLinkTo;

@ValueMapValue
String fileReference;

@ValueMapValue
@Named("sling:resourceType")
String slingResourceType;

@SlingObject
private SlingHttpServletRequest request;

@PostConstruct
protected void init() {
log.info("***** :: init :: Start :: *****");
if (request != null) {
log.info("Request Path -> {}", request.getRequestPathInfo());
} else {
log.error("Request is NULL");
}
log.info("***** :: init :: End :: *****");
}

public String getButtonLinkTo() {
return buttonLinkTo;
}

public String getSlingResourceType() {
return slingResourceType;
}

public String getFileReference() {
return fileReference;
}
}

 

http://localhost:4502/content/we-retail/language-masters/en/experience/jcr:content/root/hero_image.m...

 

Response I get:

{

  • buttonLinkTo: null,
  • fileReference: "/content/dam/we-retail/en/activities/hiking-camping/trekker-ama-dablam.jpg",
  • slingResourceType: "weretail/components/content/heroimage"

}

@maheswariv26797Can you please try @Self private SlingHttpServletRequest request; annotation like this.
