Problem Description: I need to show a custom missing XML if someone access an invalid path in our REST service. We tried to add an OnMissing template that outputs a valid XML structure and not only a text "Not Found" that cannot parsed by XML parsers.

Steps to Reproduce: Run a missing REST function

Actual Result: non-XML structure text "Not Found"

Expected Result: Valid XML with error message, customizable by us.

Any Workarounds: None.

Comments from Paul We do not have such a feature. And it will not be possible to provide onMissingTemplate support. During REST service registration, we generate the JSR 311 annotated classes and provide it to Jersey. From these annotations, Jersey creates the Rules to identify which method in CFC should be invoked when a request is received. Only if the method is identified, we get the control from the jersey to create CFC instance and invoke the method. If the user is requesting an invalid URL, the request will fail at the Jersey level itself and we will not get the control to execute the onMissingTemplate.

- Why is this possible with OnError, but not OnMissing? - Is there a way to configure this in Jersey? - Can you at least return valid XML, please?

With the fix the REST Response would be sent as <REST><MESSAGE>Not Found</MESSAGE><STATUS>404</STATUS></REST> when the invalid URL is requested.

That sounds like a working solution. Please do not forget to set the http status header 404.

Hi, We have included the fix for ColdFusion 2016. Do you want it to be included for ColdFusion 10 or 11 as well?

We just discussed this again and I learned that the current implemented solution is causing some issues. Sometimes we have JSON and sometimes XML reponses. I was not aware of this, but in case of a JSON request the responds should be JSON and not XML. Additionally the developer asked again if it may be possible to give this back to OnMissing Event handler so he has full controll and can also change the content of the response.
