Access HTTP session in AOP aspect with Spring

Posted on 21-01-2015 14:09 by graham
If you want to access the current session in an aspect in Java, you can do this using the RequestContextHolder:
public class LoggingAspect
private static final Logger log = LoggerFactory.getLogger(LoggingAspect.class);

@Around("execution(* *(..)) && @annotation(Logging)")
public Object around(ProceedingJoinPoint point) throws Throwable
Object result = point.proceed();
RequestAttributes requestAttributes = RequestContextHolder.currentRequestAttributes();"Session: " + requestAttributes.resolveReference(RequestAttributes.REFERENCE_SESSION));
return result;
