Is there a static way to get the current HttpServletRequest in Spring

If you are using spring you can do the following:

public static HttpServletRequest getCurrentHttpRequest(){
    RequestAttributes requestAttributes = RequestContextHolder.getRequestAttributes();
    if (requestAttributes instanceof ServletRequestAttributes) {
        HttpServletRequest request = ((ServletRequestAttributes)requestAttributes).getRequest();
        return request;
    logger.debug("Not called in the context of an HTTP request");
    return null;
