Hi guys. I have a question regarding spring 2.5 (with java 6). I would like to rewrite web application based on REST which is written in newest version of Spring Boot.
The question is... is it even possible? I mean, I do not want to create any front (returning jsp files), just want to create backend.
Some sample from controller I want to rewrite:
As you can see I just return response in JSON. That's all I want. I read that I need some RestTemplate or something, but it is available since Spring 3.0, so I would need some custom mapper to return json, but it is not that hard I think.
Could you tell me whether is it possible to do it? All tutorials are about returning jsp files which I do not want.
Some sample of service/controller would be extremely useful for me if possible.
