Custom Spring MVC -portlets broken after upgrading to Liferay 6.1 GA2 (web.xml listener order)

    Details

      Description

      We have the structure where applicationContext.xml contains shared beans (service layer, dao layer and such) and is loaded by org.springframework.web.context.ContextLoaderListener . Additionally all portlets have their own context loading MVC related beans (controllers, view resolvers, etc).

      Generated listeners in web.xml on version 6.1 GA1:

      <listener>
      <listener-class>org.springframework.web.context.ContextLoaderListener</listener-class>
      </listener>
      <listener>
      <listener-class>com.liferay.portal.kernel.servlet.SerializableSessionAttributeListener</listener-class>
      </listener>
      <listener>
      <listener-class>com.liferay.portal.kernel.servlet.PortletContextListener</listener-class>
      </listener>

      After upgrading to Liferay 6.1 GA2 deployment sorts listeners in web.xml alphabetically:

      <listener>
      <listener-class>com.liferay.portal.kernel.servlet.PluginContextListener</listener-class>
      </listener>
      <listener>
      <listener-class>com.liferay.portal.kernel.servlet.SerializableSessionAttributeListener</listener-class>
      </listener>
      <listener>
      <listener-class>org.springframework.web.context.ContextLoaderListener</listener-class>
      </listener>

      This causes portlet context to be loaded first and dependent beans from application context are missing.
