ObjectToOptionalConverter should use Optional.ofNullable(…) instead of Optional.of(…) [SPR-12589] #17190

Oliver Drotbohm opened SPR-12589 and commented

In case the ConversionService used in the ObjectToOptionalConverter is a FormattingConversionService, a ParserConverter will be used for the String to object conversion. For empty String instances this will immediately return null from convert(…) which then causes an exception as the ObjectToOptionalConverter passes it to Optional.of(…).

Here's a sample scenario:

String someMethod(@RequestParam Optional<Point> location) { … }

Now imagine we have a Formatter registered to turn a request parameter String into a Point. If now a request ?location= (no value) is triggered, the scenario described above kicks in.

Affects: 4.1.4
