Hi All,

I am creating a spring MVC application and running on Tomcat 8, but getting the exception.

The method getDispatcherType() is undefined for the type HttpServletRequest

I also got the same error, but solved.
In my spring MVC application I was using servlet API

    <dependency>
        <groupId>javax.servlet</groupId>
        <artifactId>servlet-api</artifactId>
        <version>3.0-alpha-1</version>
    </dependency>

And was running in tomcat 7, everything was fine and running successfully. But i switched to tomcat 8, got the same error. After seraching the solution, I got that, I need to upgrade servlet API. I chnaged my pom as

<dependency>
      <groupId>javax.servlet</groupId>
      <artifactId>javax.servlet-api</artifactId>
      <version>3.1.0</version>
    </dependency>


And the the issue is resolved.
