UrlBasedViewResolver Example in Spring 2.5 MVC

     

The UrlBasedViewResolver is provides the mapping logical view names and URLs directly that hands over to the view class specified. The UrlBasedViewResolver provides a convenient shape called InternalResourceViewResolver that support JSP, Servlet, JstlViews and TileViews. In this example, we will discuss about how to use of UrlBasedViewResolver in your project.

Step 1:

Now we will create a index.jsp file that will have a link to generate user request. The code of the index.jsp is:

<%@page contentType="text/html" pageEncoding="UTF-8"%>

<html>

<head>

<title>URL Based View Resolver</title>

</head>

<body>

<center>

<a href="urlbasedviewresolver.html">URL Based View Resolver</a>

</center>

</body>

</html>

Step 2:

Now we will customize the the web.xml file for the DispatcherServlet and set index.jsp as a welcome file . The code of the web.xml file is:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<web-app xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"

xmlns="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/j2ee"

xmlns:web="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/javaee/web-app_2_5.xsd"

xsi:schemaLocation="http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/j2ee

http://java.sun.com/xml/ns/j2ee/web-app_2_5.xsd"

version="2.5">

<servlet>

<servlet-name>dispatcher</servlet-name>

<servlet-class>org.springframework.web.servlet.DispatcherServlet</servlet-class>

<load-on-startup>1</load-on-startup>

</servlet>

<servlet-mapping>

<servlet-name>dispatcher</servlet-name>

<url-pattern>*.html</url-pattern>

</servlet-mapping>

<welcome-file-list>

<welcome-file>index.jsp</welcome-file>

</welcome-file-list>

<taglib>

<taglib-uri>/spring</taglib-uri>

<taglib-location>/WEB-INF/spring.tld</taglib-location>

</taglib>

</web-app>

Step 3:

Now we will create dispatcher-servlet.xml inside the /WEB-INF/ folder. In this dispatcher-servlet.xml we will include some code that are important to use UrlBasedViewResolver. The UrlBasedViewresolver much similar to the InternalResourceViewresolver. The code for the UrlBasedViewResolver in the dispatcher-servlet.xml is: 

<bean id="viewResolver"

class="org.springframework.web.servlet.view.UrlBasedViewResolver">

<property name="viewClass" value="org.springframework.web.servlet.view.JstlView"/>

<property name="prefix" value="/WEB-INF/jsp/"/>

<property name="suffix" value=".jsp"/>

</bean>

Through this view resolver we have direct mapping the url to actual view. In the Spring MVC, every controller return a view after that the view resolver append the prefix and suffix in this view and show the view as response. The full code of the dispatcher-servlet.xml is:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<beans xmlns="http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans"

xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"

xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans

http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans/spring-beans-2.5.xsd">

<bean class="org.springframework.web.servlet.handler.SimpleUrlHandlerMapping">

<property name="mappings">

<props>

<prop key="/urlbasedviewresolver.html">urlBasedViewResolverController</prop>

</props>

</property>

</bean>

<bean name="urlBasedViewResolverController"

class="net.roseindia.web.UrlbasedViewResolver">

</bean>

<bean id="viewResolver"

class="org.springframework.web.servlet.view.UrlBasedViewResolver">

<property name="viewClass" value=
"org.springframework.web.servlet.view.JstlView"/>

<property name="prefix" value="/WEB-INF/jsp/"/>

<property name="suffix" value=".jsp"/>

</bean>

</beans>

Step 4:

Now we will create a message.jsp inside the /WEB-INF/jsp/ folder. This jsp file display when controller send response for the user. The code of the message.jsp is:

<%@ page language="java" contentType="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1"

pageEncoding="ISO-8859-1"%>

<html>

<head>

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1">

<title>URL Based View Resolver Example</title>

</head>

<body>

<center>

<table>

<tr>

<td>

<b>${message}</b>

</td>

</tr>

</table>

</center>

</body>

</html>

Step 5:

Now we will create a controller class for handle the user request that implements the AbstractController. The controller class name is UrlbasedViewResolver.java. This controller class return a message and ModelAndView. The code of the UrlbasedViewResolver.java is:

package net.roseindia.web;
import javax.servlet.http.HttpServletRequest;
import javax.servlet.http.HttpServletResponse;
import org.springframework.web.servlet.ModelAndView;
import org.springframework.web.servlet.mvc.AbstractController;
public class UrlbasedViewResolver extends AbstractController 
@Override
protected ModelAndView handleRequestInternal(HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse response)throws Exception {
String Message = "This is URL Based View Resolver Test Example."
ModelAndView modelAndView = new ModelAndView("message");
 modelAndView.addObject("message", Message)
 return modelAndView;
  }
}

Step 6:

Now we will run this application and see the output like:
