Reloading the spring context does not refresh the MessageDispatcherServlet [SWS-718] #700

Johan Gorter opened SWS-718 and commented

Our application uses a special classloader from which it can load beans dynamically. The applicationcontext is reloaded to do this. The normal DispatcherServlet has a mechanism to allow the applicationcontext to be reloaded by overriding the onRefresh method. The MessageDispatcherServlet does not do this and crashes occur when webservices are invoked.

The class below can be used as a workaround.

public class FixedMessageDispatcherServlet
	extends MessageDispatcherServlet

	private boolean initializing = true;

	protected void onRefresh(ApplicationContext context)
		try {
			if (this.initializing) {
				this.initializing = false;
			} else {
		} catch (Exception e) {
			throw new RuntimeException(e);

Affects: 2.0.2

Fixed. MessageDispatcherServlet.onRefresh now calls the new initDefaultStrategies method, just like the normal DispatcherServlet does.
