Louis Huh opened SPR-7414 and commented

@RequestMapping(value="/put", method=RequestMethod.PUT)
public Result testPutParam(@RequestParam("name") String name) {
	Map<String, String> m = new HashMap<String, String>();
	m.put("name", name);
	m.put("msisdn", "010-7464-5279");
	return new SuccessResult<Map<String, String>>(m);

RequestParam annotation doesn't work.

if I use RequestBody annotation instead, I can see request body

I call this api as below

    HttpPut httpPut = new HttpPut("http://localhost:8080/put");
    httpPut.addHeader("Accept", "application/json");
// Add data  
    List<NameValuePair> nameValuePairs = new ArrayList<NameValuePair>(1);  
    nameValuePairs.add(new BasicNameValuePair("name", "louisHuh"));  
    httpPut.setEntity(new UrlEncodedFormEntity(nameValuePairs));  
HttpClient client = new DefaultHttpClient();
HttpResponse response = client.execute(httpPut);

I'm afraid this is a general limitation with the Servlet API: Parameters are only defined for GET requests (with parameters taken from the query String) and POST requests (with parameters taken from the request body). In all other scenarios, HttpServletRequest's getParameter won't work. Spring's @RequestParam simply delegates to the HttpServletRequest and, as a consequence, inherits the same limitation.
