I'm attempting to write a Java Spring 4 MVC web application. I would like to know if the afterCompletion interceptor is called after sending the response to the client? Docs say after rendering the view, but I'm not clear if that means sent to the client or just that the view has been prepared to send. Is the request thread alive in this phase? I'm trying to perform request/response logging of transactions and was attempting to complete the response logging in the afterCompletion phase. I'm using a "request" scoped bean to collect bits of transaction information during the request processing and then in the afterCompletion method write this data to logs. However, the process is just stopping in afterCompletion before logging everything. It logs some of it and just stops - no exception.
