Trouble with GHResponse

Hey there, i‘m currently stuck in several problems…

I want my Java-Backend to calculate the route and expose it so leaflet routing machine can render it.

I‘m developing a spring boot application and setup the graphhopper instance using the java-api.
So far, so good…

However when it comes to create the jsonObject, jackson is throwing a exception when serializing the BBox Caused by infinite recursion.

Anyway when i try to construct the output by myself (without calcBbox2D), there are missing fields in the output like the interval-field of the instructionlist and lrm-graphhopper ran into ‚cannot read property of undefined’ error.

I‘ve read all possible related posts on stack overflow but without any success.

Thankful for any Kind of help!

I once stumbled also over this but wasn’t able to reproduce this. Do you have the exact stack trace of the exception and even better a step by step guide to recreate this?

My Endpoint:

@RequestMapping(path = "/route", method = RequestMethod.GET, produces = MediaType.APPLICATION_JSON)
public Response doGet(@RequestParam Map<String, String> allParams,
        @RequestParam(name = "WAY_POINT_MAX_DISTANCE", defaultValue = "1") double minPathPrecision, @RequestParam("point") String[] requestPoints,
        @RequestParam(name = "type", defaultValue = "json") String type,
        @RequestParam(name = "INSTRUCTIONS", defaultValue = "true") boolean instructions,
        @RequestParam(name = "CALC_POINTS", defaultValue = "true") boolean calcPoints,
        @RequestParam(name = "elevation", defaultValue = "true") boolean enableElevation,
        @RequestParam(name = "points_encoded", defaultValue = "true") boolean pointsEncoded,
        @RequestParam(name = "vehicle", defaultValue = "car") String vehicleStr,
        @RequestParam(name = "weighting", defaultValue = "fastest") String weighting,
        @RequestParam(name = "algorithm", defaultValue = "") String algoStr, @RequestParam(name = "locale", defaultValue = "de") String localeStr)
{
    List<GHPoint> pointList = new ArrayList<>();
    StopWatch sw = new StopWatch().start();

    for (int i = 0; i < requestPoints.length; i++)
    {
        pointList.add(GHPoint.fromString(requestPoints[i]));
    }

    GHRequest request = new GHRequest(pointList);

    request.setVehicle(vehicleStr).setWeighting(weighting).setAlgorithm(algoStr).setLocale(localeStr).getHints().put("CALC_POINTS", calcPoints)
            .put("INSTRUCTIONS", instructions).put("WAY_POINT_MAX_DISTANCE", minPathPrecision);

    GHResponse ghResponse = this.hopper.route(request);

    float took = sw.stop().getSeconds();

     return Response.ok(WebHelper.jsonObject(ghResponse, instructions, calcPoints, enableElevation,
     pointsEncoded, took))
     .header("X-GH-Took", "" + Math.round(took * 1000)).build();
}

Using these dependencies:

	<dependency>
		<groupId>com.graphhopper</groupId>
		<artifactId>graphhopper-web</artifactId>
		<version>0.13.0-pre10</version>
	</dependency>

	<dependency>

Hope this helps

You need to initialize the ObjectMapper of Jackson: https://github.com/graphhopper/graphhopper/blob/master/web-api/src/main/java/com/graphhopper/jackson/Jackson.java#L26

Thanks for your advice!

Registering the Mapper as a Bean solved it :upside_down_face:

   @Bean 
    public ObjectMapper objectMapper()
    {
       return Jackson.newObjectMapper();
    }

Needed also to change the returntype of the endpoint to ObjectNode:

    return WebHelper.jsonObject(ghResponse, instructions, calcPoints, enableElevation,
          pointsEncoded, took);

Now the leaflet routing machine renders the route as expected :love_you_gesture:t3:
