GWT + Spring Boot @Autowired is not working

Posted by: admin October 24, 2018 Leave a comment

Questions:

I have created a application in GWT + Spring Boot and when I try to use @Autowired – I get NullPointerException. Apparently @Autowired does not work and does not insert the bean in the right place. How can I fix this situation?

Exception while dispatching incoming RPC call

com.google.gwt.user.server.rpc.UnexpectedException: Service method
‘public abstract java.util.List
com.myGWT.springbootapp.client.UserService.list()’ threw an unexpected
exception: java.lang.NullPointerException
