Hi,

I have question related to Spring MVC.
Is it possible to invoke onSubmit method of SimpleFormController through URL hit.
I know when form is submitted and form submission URL mapped to controller, upon form submission onSubmit method will be called.
But I want to call same onSubmit method of controller by passing form parameters in URL as query string and hit enter from address bar.
Please advise is this possible.

poli reddy,

I don't think its possible if you are using post method but if you use get method its possible but this case is a security threat to the data you will be providing

Hi Udaykumar,

Thanks for responding.

Usual request parameter names and values can be passed using & concatenation. Can you advise me how to pass CommandObject (Spring MVC form input) parameters via URL to Controller onSubmit().
I do not want to change logic of onSubmit to request.getParameter() to achieve my URL hit requirement. I want to continue current logic in my onSubmit() which is using command object when form submitted in jsp.

poli reddy,

Try this. I am not sure if this is the correct procedure for passing variables but for your needs you can do this



You will be able to pass params in url as

host:port/yourapp/submit/param1/param2



Note: The name of parameters you pass in url should be given within the brackets of @Pathvariable annotations
