Obtención reflexiva de la lista de controladores Spring MVC que coinciden con una URL específica

How to reflectively get list of all controllers (best if not only annotated, but also specified in xml), matching some specfic url in your Spring MVC application?

In case of annotated-only,

private ListableBeanFactory listableBeanFactory;
whatever() {
    Map<String,Object> beans = listableBeanFactory.getBeansWithAnnotation(RequestMapping.class);

    // iterate beans and compare RequestMapping.value() annotation parameters
    // to produce list of matching controllers

could be used, but what to do in more general case, when controllers may be specified in spring.xml config? And what to do with request-path parameters?

How do you plan to use this information? Spring Tool Suite will give you this information inside the IDE. Otherwise, here's a utility that I wrote: github.com/kdgregory/pathfinder (I'll be merging some updates later this week) -

I am trying to implement dynamic-menu system for my web application. I need not to statically analyze the source codes (my Idea does that well already), i need to analyze it run-time, reflectively. -

How do you plan on finding the relevant controllers in the XML config? Maybe you could access org.springframework.web.bind.annotation.support.HandlerMethodResolver.getHandlerMethods() at runtime and process the returned methods. -

¿Afecta la regulación de la Ralph's answer not give you what you're looking for? My thought is to scan your beans for DefaultAnnotationHandlerMapping and then pull its mapping map, but as I haven't tried this it's not an answer. The alternative is to examine the registered beans for annotations, but there are some twists to this. -

Since Spring 3.1, there is the class RequestMappingHandlerMapping, it delivers information about the mapping (RequestMappingInfo) of @Controller classes.

private RequestMappingHandlerMapping requestMappingHandlerMapping;

public void init() {
    Map<RequestMappingInfo, HandlerMethod> handlerMethods =

    for(Entry<RequestMappingInfo, HandlerMethod> item : handlerMethods.entrySet()) {
        RequestMappingInfo mapping = item.getKey();
        HandlerMethod method = item.getValue();

        for (String urlPattern : mapping.getPatternsCondition().getPatterns()) {
                 method.getBeanType().getName() + "#" + method.getMethod().getName() +
                 " <-- " + urlPattern);

            if (urlPattern.equals("some specific url")) {
               //add to list of matching METHODS

It is important that this bean is defined in the spring context where the controllers are defined.

I am facing no bean of type RequestMappingHandlerMapping. Who will ceate this bean before autowiring..can you help me here ? - Nagappa LM

You get a mapped Controller by calling HandlerMapping.getHandler(HTTPServletRequest).getHandler(). An HandlerMapping instance can be aquired by IoC. If you don't have a HTTPServletRequest you can build your Request with a MockHttpServletRequest.

private HandlerMapping mapping;

public Object getController(String uri) {
    MockHttpServletRequest request = new MockHttpServletRequest("GET", uri);
    // configure your request to some mapping
    HandlerExecutionChain chain = mapping.getHandler(request);
    return chain.getHandler();

Sorry, I read now that you want all controllers for a URL. This will geht you only one exactly matched controller. It's obviously not want you need.

You can try using ListableBeanFactory interface to retrieve all bean names.

private @Autowired ListableBeanFactory beanFactory;

public void doStuff() {
    for (String beanName : beanFactory.getBeanDefinitionNames()) {
        if (beanName.startsWith("env")) { // or whatever check you want to do
            Object bean = beanFactory.getBean(beanName)
            // .. do something with it

See documentation of ListableBeanFactory aquí. This interface provides several methods like getBeansOfType(), getBeanDefinitionCount() etc.

If this approach does not list @Controller annotated beans visita esto page to see how that can be done.

you need to do a entry for RequestMappingHandlerMapping in your dispatcher servlet

<bean name="requestHandlerMapping" class="org.springframework.web.servlet.mvc.method.annotation.RequestMappingHandlerMapping">
        <property name="useTrailingSlashMatch" value="true"></property>

the dispatcher servlet will look into this mapping and instantiate a bean RequestMappingHandlerMapping in your application

now in any of your controller/class you can use

private HandlerMapping mapping;

y debería funcionar bien.

Note: you need to take care of adding the bean, if any of your dispatcherservlet (in case of big application) contains this bean it will result into noUniqueBean exception and application wont start.
