Spring MVC — Parameterizable View Controller | Code Factory

Spring Tutorial Index Page: Link

  • ParameterizableViewController use setter DI so from xml file we must have to pass viewName.

Create Java Web Project

  • Open Eclipse
  • Go to File -> New -> Dynamic Web Project
  • Create MVC-Controller2 project
  • Right click on project -> Build Path -> Configure Build Path -> Libraries tab -> Add External JARs (Used 2.X jars)
    - commons-logging-X.X.jar
    - spring-beans-X.X.X.jar
    - spring-context-X.X.X.jar
    - spring-core-X.X.X.jar
    - spring-web-X.X.X.jar
    - spring-webmvc-X.X.X.jar
  • Also, add these jars in WEB-INF/lib folder for runtime.
  • * You can find dtd information from spring-beans-X.X.X.jar -> org -> springframework -> beans -> factory -> xml -> spring-beans.dtd (line no 36 & 37)
