Normally, RestTemplate is expected to throw an exception if the server returns an HTTP error code. However, is the server returns a custom error code (4xx or 5xx), no exception is thrown and the call returns normally.

Affects: 4.3.20, 5.0.10

Juergen Hoeller I can see that #20529 brought some changes to DefaultResponseErrorHandler to improve support for custom response codes. Now getHttpStatusCode(ClientHttpResponse) is deprecated in favor of handleError(ClientHttpResponse, HttpStatus) but hasError only detects errors for values in the HttpStatus enum range. So I don't see how handleError would ever be called for a custom 4xx or 5xx code, whereas previously that would have caused an UnknownHttpStatusCodeException.

Resolved on master through a raw status code check for client/server errors in case of an unresolvable HttpStatus enum. To be backported to 5.0.x and 4.3.x later today.
