In Mapping use produces="application/xml" or produces="application/json" for XML or JSON response

What if you don’t want to use produces property of Mapping, then how will you receive XML or JSON response?

Answer is, use header while calling any method. Give Key as “Accept” and values as “application/json” if you need JSON response and “application/xml” for Xml response. In this way we can get both json and xml responses from a single method.

Method :
public Employee getData(HttpServletRequest request) {
return new Employee("EMP_ID", "EMP_NAME");

XML response :

JSON response :

Note : Don’t forgot to pass _csrf tocken in http://localhost:8080/getData URL
