onSuccess

onSuccess

Signature

def onSuccess(magnet: OnSuccessMagnet): Directive[magnet.Out] 

Description

Evaluates its parameter of type Future[T], and once the Future has been completed successfully, extracts its result as a value of type T and passes it to the inner route.

If the future fails its failure throwable is bubbled up to the nearest ExceptionHandler.

To handle the Failure case manually as well, use onComplete, instead.

Example

val route =
  path("success") {
    onSuccess(Future { "Ok" }) { extraction =>
      complete(extraction)
    }
  } ~
  path("failure") {
    onSuccess(Future.failed[String](TestException)) { extraction =>
      complete(extraction)
    }
  }

// tests:
Get("/success") ~> route ~> check {
  responseAs[String] shouldEqual "Ok"
}

Get("/failure") ~> Route.seal(route) ~> check {
  status shouldEqual InternalServerError
  responseAs[String] shouldEqual "Unsuccessful future!"
}
