My question:

How to set attributes in the WebScriptRequest, or cast WebScriptRequest to another class which allows setting attributes to it? 


My approach:

The issue is, WebScriptRequest does not have set methods. In order to overcome this, I attempted to cast WebScriptRequest to HttpServletRequest. Next in the HttpServletRequest, I set my attribute.


I am attempting code as the one below (which compiles, but throws the runtime error):


public class MyWebScript extends AAbstractWebScript{


public void execute(WebScriptRequest request, WebScriptResponse response) throws IOException {

      HttpServletRequest httpReq = ((WebScriptServletRequest) request).getHttpServletRequest();
      httpReq.setAttribute("name", "John");



The issue is: 

With the approach above, the code compiles, but I get runtime error as below:


org.alfresco.repo.web.scripts.BufferedRequest cannot be cast to org.springframework.extensions.webscripts.servlet.WebScriptServletRequest
