I have a RESTful web service in which I want to give the client the option of receiving either XML or JSON by specifying the extension on the URL:

If I send:


I only get only JSON back if I specify the Accept header as application/json. If I specify both text.xml and application/json in the header, I always get XML back, no matter what extension I use. I'd like the extension to determine the format of the output. I've been trying to follow the new Spring in Action book but there is something missing in the text.
