Subject [jira] Resolved: (WW-2515) REST plugin does not throw a 404 if resource cannot be found
Date Fri, 02 May 2008 02:35:07 GMT


Don Brown resolved WW-2515.

       Resolution: Not A Problem
    Fix Version/s:     (was: 2.1.2)
         Assignee: Don Brown

I think we determined there isn't a bug with how things work now.  Please open a new feature
ticket if you want the addition of exceptions that you can throw to get the 404 automatically.
 Patches welcome :)

> When there is a GET request for a resource that does not exist, example GET /authors/25
where author with id 25 does not exist, the getModel() method of the action should return
null (and in most cases will return null as the object does not exist).
> However, the current ContentTypeInterceptor implementation is not entirely RESTful as
the right response should be HTTP Status Code 404 "Not Found".
> I have patched the ContentTypeInterceptor to return a 404 status if the requested resource
could not be found.
