Now you can use the Spring Initializer to download a ready made project with common dependencies cooking into to Maven or Gradle. Spring Boot and Spring Initializer makes your life as a developer easier.

      On writing a spring controller test using junit5 and spring mvc, to test an unhappy scenario that returns a 400, the test propagates the failures to the controller advice and as such instead of the expected 400 error, the test returns the exception from the custom exception class that handles the failure.

      I guess what am asking is how I can get mockMvc bean to use the Controller advice?
