Handling un-mapped Rest path

This is my current Guice configuration:

public class MyServletModule extends ServletModule { @Override protected void configureServlets() { bind(MyRest.class); serveRegex(".+(?<!\\.(html|css|png|jpg))") .with(HttpServletDispatcher.class); } }

However I want that my Rest resource is only access in form of{hashcode_or_filename} and the only form accepted and processed (well, plus the /create method below).

Right now, I can deal with hashcode and filename properly in this path pattern.

However I am not sure how to deal the kind or scenario below, where the client is requesting path that is not mapped, which returns this in my case:

Could not find resource for relative : /examples/foo of full path:


Could not find resource for relative : /examples/bar/foo of full path:

What I need is to be able to be able to handle unmapped paths so I can return a error HTML page or something and not show these error text in the browser.

Also if the request is: I need to forward to automatically. As right now I have to manually put the index.html in the tail.

My Resteasy resource is configure or wired with just:

@Singleton @Path("/") public class MyRest { @GET @Path({hashcode}) public Response getSomething(...){} @POST @Path("create") public Response createSomething(...){} }


Easiest way is to register filter to handle responses with error code other that 200 (OK). Or add to your web.xml something like this:

<error-page> <error-code>404</error-code> <location>/ErrorPage.jsp</location> </error-page>

Also if the request is: I need to forward to automatically. As right now I have to manually put the index.html in the tail.

You can use this module http://tuckey.org/urlrewrite/


<filter> <filter-name>UrlRewriteFilter</filter-name> <filter-class>org.tuckey.web.filters.urlrewrite.UrlRewriteFilter</filter-class> <init-param> <param-name>confPath</param-name> <param-value>/WEB-INF/urlrewrite.xml</param-value> </init-param> <!--...omitted...--> </filter> <filter-mapping> <filter-name>UrlRewriteFilter</filter-name> <url-pattern>/*</url-pattern> <dispatcher>REQUEST</dispatcher> <dispatcher>FORWARD</dispatcher> </filter-mapping>
