Hi,

I'm new to Spring MVC, and the Spring FW in general. My previous experience is with PHP (Zend FW) and C#/ASP.NET MVC.

I'm used to having this URL mapping convention supported in all of frameworks I've worked in:

http://www.domain.com/myController/action/[optional parameters]

The framework would then look for a class named "MyControllerController," and a method in that controller named "Action" and execute it. For example:



I've seen some examples of controllers and read the Spring documentation. It looks like that convention is not supported in Spring MVC. Am I correct? You have to explicitly declare the mapping in either a bean config file or use a @RequestMapping annotation?

Hi Jason,

Yes, You are right.

Spring MVC framework is designed around a DispatcherServlet with configurable handler mappings, view resolution ant many things. The default handler is based on the @Controller and @RequestMapping annotations if you are using spring 3.0. In older version of spring you need to declare the bean in configuration file for request mapping.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
