I trying to hit Spring Controller service using the mockmvc test but every time I am getting "org.springframework.web.HttpMediaTypeNotSupportedException" . I appreciate if any one refer  below details and try to suggest me .

Controller : -
@PostMapping(value="/textTranslation",consumes = MediaType.APPLICATION_JSON_VALUE , produces = MediaType.APPLICATION_JSON_VALUE)
public ResponseEntity<ResponseBody>  translateText(@RequestBody TranslationRequest tranaTranslationRequest) throws Exception {
ResponseBody responseBody = new ResponseBody();
try {
System.out.println("In side Controller");
catch(Exception e) {
return new ResponseEntity<ResponseBody>(responseBody, HttpStatus.OK);

Test : -

public void testRequestBodyInput() throws Exception {

TranslationRequest translationRequest = new TranslationRequest("english","french","test");

MockHttpServletRequestBuilder request = post("/textTranslation");

* mockMvc.perform(post("/textTranslation").
* content(asJsonString(translationRequest)).contentType(MediaType.
* andDo(print()) .andExpect(status().isOk()).
* andExpect(MockMvcResultMatchers.jsonPath("$.test").value("test"));


    public static String asJsonString(final Object obj) {
   try {
       return new ObjectMapper().writeValueAsString(obj);
   } catch (Exception e) {
       throw new RuntimeException(e);

Spring Version - 5.0.1.RELEASE

Test Error - java.lang.AssertionError: Status expected:<200> but was:<415>
