How to use Spring Converter for some controllers only?

Hope that helps Normally speaking, a registered Converter is bound to an input source and an output destination. In your case . The default Spring converter you used will apply the conversion on each matching source-destination pair.
To gain more control over when to apply the conversion, a ConditionalGenericConverter can be used. The interface contains 3 methods:
// RequiresConversion is a custom annotation solely used in this example
// to annotate an attribute as "convertable"
public @interface RequiresConversion {
public class SomeConverter implements ConditionalGenericConverter {

    public boolean matches(TypeDescriptor sourceType, TypeDescriptor targetType) {
        // Verify whether the annotation is present
        return targetType.getAnnotation(RequiresConversion.class) != null;

    public Set<ConvertiblePair> getConvertibleTypes() {
        return Collections.singleton(new ConvertiblePair(String.class, Long.class));

    public Object convert(Object source, TypeDescriptor sourceType, TypeDescriptor targetType) {
        // Conversion logic here
        // In this example it strips "value" from the source string
        String sourceValue = ((String) source).replace("value", "");
        return Long.valueOf(sourceValue);
public class SomeController {

    // The path variable used will be converted, resulting in the "value"-prefix 
    // being stripped in SomeConverter
    // Notice the custom '@RequiresConversion' annotation
    @GetMapping(value = "/test/{myvalue}")
    public ResponseEntity myvalue(@RequiresConversion @PathVariable Long myvalue) {
        return new ResponseEntity<>(HttpStatus.OK);

    // As the @RequiresConversion annotation is not present,
    // the conversion is not applied to the @PathVariable
    @GetMapping(value = "/test2/{myvalue}")
    public ResponseEntity myvalue2(@PathVariable Long myvalue) {
        return new ResponseEntity<>(HttpStatus.OK);

Spring Webflow binding: Converter - java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Each converter object must implement one of the

This might help you Are you sure you should be using the org.springframework.context.support.ConversionServiceFactoryBean? This is a spring-core defined class. It expects the following:
public class MyConversionService extends DefaultConversionService {

    public void ConversionService() {

    protected void addDefaultConverters() {


Spring MVC and AOP: @Pointcuts only apply for Rest Controllers and not for common Web Controllers

Tag : spring-mvc , By : Edo

it fixes the issue Seems that the problem is in you pointcut definition. You may notice that your advice method is performed only for methods with one parameter, so this is due to the fact that you have specified args(id) in the pointcut declaration. It must work as you expect if you remove args(id), but in this case some workaround must be used to expose parameter value.
I think that this is strange behavior form AspectJ because constructions like execution(* *.*(String, ..)) && args(arg) && target(t)) has clear semantic sense to capture all the methods with String first parameter and expose it to args. It can be a bug or feature, at least, to AspectJ developers.
"execution(* com.manuel.jordan.controller.*.*Controller.deleteOne(..)) && target(object)")
public void deleteOnePointcut(Object object){}

public void beforeAdviceDeleteOne(JoinPoint jp, Object object){
    Object id = jp.getArgs()[0];
    logger.info("beforeAdviceDeleteOne - @Controller: {} - Method: deleteOne - id: {}", object.getClass().getSimpleName(), id);

I wish did fix the issue. This is the output I get in my Browser for a Spring MVC using REST , In your dispatcher servlet config xml file make sure you have this:
            <bean class="org.springframework.http.converter.StringHttpMessageConverter"/>
            <bean class="org.springframework.http.converter.json.MappingJackson2HttpMessageConverter"/>
