Broadleaf: No bean named ‘blMainEntityActionsExtensionManager’ is defined

I’ve got the BroadLeaf demo application and tried to modify using this manual. I added a class like that:

package com.myco.admin.web.controller;
@Controller
@RequestMapping("/test")
public class MyController extends AdminAbstractController {

    @RequestMapping(value = "", method = RequestMethod.GET)
    public String test(HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response, Model model) throws Exception {
        // This is expected by the modules/emptyContainer template, this is a custom template that gets included into the body
        model.addAttribute("customView", "views/test");

        // ensure navigation gets set up correctly
        setModelAttributes(model, "test");

        // gets the scaffolding set up to display the template from the customView attribute above
        return "modules/emptyContainer";
    }
}

And when I try to run admin.war, I can see the following exception:

org.springframework.beans.factory.BeanCreationException: Error creating bean with name 'myController': Injection of resource dependencies failed; nested exception is org.springframework.beans.factory.NoSuchBeanDefinitionException: No bean named 'blMainEntityActionsExtensionManager' is defined

What’s wrong with this example? I guess it should work out-of-the-box.

Answer

The exception would get resolved if you add the following lines in applicationContext-admin.xml:

<bean id="blMainEntityActionsExtensionManager" class="org.broadleafcommerce.openadmin.web.controller.MainEntityActionsExtensionManager" />
<bean id="blAdminAbstractControllerExtensionManager" class="org.broadleafcommerce.openadmin.web.controller.AdminAbstractControllerExtensionManager" />
