Custom controller for plugin not being loaded

I am working on a build task plugin with a simple configuration screen in the administration area of TC for users to enter their API key for our service. I am following the docs, samples, and other solutions to similar problems in these forums (as far as I can tell!), but still can't seem to get the controller registered properly.

My spring beans XML file loads a main plugin constructor, which initializes & registers my custom AdminTab and then does the same for my custom controller, which extends BaseController:

    // set up & register the settings tab in admin
    MyAdminTab admin_tab = new MyAdminTab(pagePlaces, pluginDescriptor);

    // set up & register the controller
    MyAdminController controller = new MyAdminController(server, pluginDescriptor);
    webControllerManager.registerController("/admin/my_controller.html", controller);

This is MyAdminController:

public class MyAdminController extends BaseController {

  public MyAdminController(@NotNull SBuildServer server, @NotNull final PluginDescriptor pluginDescriptor) {




  public ModelAndView doHandle(final HttpServletRequest request, final HttpServletResponse response) throws IOException {

    System.out.println("== hello, this is the doHandle method ==");

    response.getOutputStream().print("Hello from doHandle!");


    return null;



When I install my plugin and open the administration pages, I see the custom tab, but localhost:8111/admin/my_controller.html returns a 404:

$ curl -v http://localhost:8111/admin/my_controller.html

Am I missing something obvious?

Turns out maven was hanging on to an old version of my bean XML file and there was an unsatisfied bean dependency throwing an error because I had moved things around. Got the maven package sorted out and everything seems to be working as advertised.
