HTTP Status 405 – Request method ‘POST’ not supported (Spring MVC)

Im getting this error: HTTP Status 405 - Request method 'POST' not supported

What I am trying to do is make a form with a drop down box that get populated based on the other value selected in another drop down box. For example when I select a name in the customerName box the onChange function in the .jsp page should be run and the page submitted then loaded again with the corresponding values in the customerCountry box.

however I’m getting this HTTP Status 405 error. I have searched the internet for a solution but haven’t been able to find anything that helped. Here is the relevant parts of my code:

part of jsp page

<html>
    <head>
        <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">
        <title>Insert title here</title>
            <style>
            .error { color: red; }
            </style>

        <script>
            function repopulate(){  
                document.deliveryForm.submit();
            }

            function setFalse(){
                document.getElementById("hasId").value ="false";
                document.deliveryForm.submit();
                // document.submitForm.submit(); (This was causing the error)

            }
        </script>

    </head>
    <body>

        <h1>Create New Delivery</h1>

        <c:url var="saveUrl" value="/test/delivery/add" />
        <form:form modelAttribute="deliveryDtoAttribute" method="POST" action="${saveUrl}" name="deliveryForm">
            <table>


                <tr>
                    <td><form:hidden id="hasId" path="hasCustomerName" value="true"/></td>
                </tr>

                <tr>
                    <td>Customer Name</td>
                    <td><form:select path="customerName" onChange="repopulate()">
                        <form:option value="" label="--- Select ---" />
                        <form:options items="${customerNameList}" />
                        </form:select>
                    </td>
                    <td><form:errors path="customerName" cssClass="error" /></td>
                </tr>

                <tr>
                    <td>Customer Country</td>
                    <td><form:select path="customerCountry">
                        <form:option value="" label="--- Select ---" />
                        <form:options items="${customerCountryList}" />
                        </form:select>
                    </td>
                    <td><form:errors path="customerCountry" cssClass="error" /></td>
                </tr>

        </form:form>

        <form:form name="submitForm">
        <input type="button" value="Save" onClick="setFalse()"/>
        </form:form>

    </body>
</html>

part of controller:

@RequestMapping(value = "/add", method = RequestMethod.GET)
    public String getDelivery(ModelMap model) {
        DeliveryDto deliveryDto = new DeliveryDto();

        model.addAttribute("deliveryDtoAttribute", deliveryDto);
        model.addAttribute("customerNameList",
                customerService.listAllCustomerNames());
        model.addAttribute("customerCountryList", customerService
                    .listAllCustomerCountries(deliveryDto.getCustomerName()));
        return "new-delivery";
    }

    // I want to enter this method if hasId=true which means that a value in the CustomerName 
    // drop down list was selected. This should set the CountryList to the corresponding values 
    // from the database. I want this post method to be triggered by the onChange in the jsp page

    @RequestMapping(value = "/add", method = RequestMethod.POST, params="hasCustomerName=true")
    public String postDelivery(
            @ModelAttribute("deliveryDtoAttribute") DeliveryDto deliveryDto,
            BindingResult result, ModelMap model) {


            model.addAttribute("deliveryDtoAttribute", deliveryDto);

            model.addAttribute("customerNameList",
                    customerService.listAllCustomerNames());
            model.addAttribute("customerCountryList", customerService
                    .listAllCustomerCountries(deliveryDto.getCustomerName()));

            return "new-delivery";
    }

    // This next post method should only be entered if the save button is hit in the jsp page

    @RequestMapping(value = "/add", method = RequestMethod.POST, params="hasCustomerName=false")
    public String postDelivery2(
            @ModelAttribute("deliveryDtoAttribute") @Valid DeliveryDto deliveryDto,
            BindingResult result, ModelMap model) {

        if (result.hasErrors()) {

            model.addAttribute("deliveryDtoAttribute", deliveryDto);

            model.addAttribute("customerNameList",
                    customerService.listAllCustomerNames());
            model.addAttribute("customerCountryList", customerService
                    .listAllCustomerCountries(deliveryDto.getCustomerName()));

            return "new-delivery";
        } else {

            Delivery delivery = new Delivery();

            //Setters to set delivery values

            return "redirect:/mis/home";
        }

    }

How come I get this error? Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks

EDIT: Changed hasId to hasCustomerName. I still get the HTTP Status 405 - Request method 'POST' not supported error though.

EDIT2: Commented out the line in the setFalse function that was causing the error

Answer

I found the problem that was causing the HTTP error.

In the setFalse() function that is triggered by the Save button my code was trying to submit the form that contained the button.

        function setFalse(){
            document.getElementById("hasId").value ="false";
            document.deliveryForm.submit();
            document.submitForm.submit();

when I remove the document.submitForm.submit(); it works:

        function setFalse(){
            document.getElementById("hasId").value ="false";
            document.deliveryForm.submit()

@Roger Lindsj√∂ Thank you for spotting my error where I wasn’t passing on the right parameter!
