Call all @Before methods in a Controller inheritance chain
Reported by Ron Gross | November 19th, 2011 @ 01:16 PM
It seems only the @Before method on the concrete controller will get called be Play!
I would prefer that all methods in the inheritance chain of this controller be called, like jUnit's @Before.

This ticket should be caused as invalid.
I see that Play! actually does call all the @Before methods - the problem I had was caused by mistakengly using jUnit's @Before annotation.
A nice bonus feature would be for Play! to automatically detect jUnit's @Before annotation and write an error about it.

Creating a bug reportBug reports are incredibly helpful, so take time to report bugs and request features in our ticket tracker. We’re always grateful for patches to Play’s code. Indeed, bug reports with attached patches will get fixed far quickly than those without any.
Please include as much relevant information as possible including the exact framework version you're using and a code snippet that reproduces the problem.
Don't have too much expectations. Unless the bug is really a serious "everything is broken" thing, you're creating a ticket to start a discussion. Having a patch (or a branch on Github we can pull from) is better, but then again we'll only pull high quality branches that make sense to be in the core of Play.
