  • Spring MVC Restful App: how to redirect a form result to another page

    I'm new to Spring MVC Restful. Suppose I have index.jsp which forwards user to a form page where user could submit a term to search. I catch the term with a POST handler method, and then do some calculation and hope to redirect the result to be used at another page (/WEB-INF/jsp), for example, we say build a graph based on the result. The problem is how to gather the results and redirect the URL at the same time. The Controllers like below:

    @RequestMapping(value="/termForm", method = RequestMethod.GET)
    public ModelAndView  setupForm() {
    Term termClass = new Term();
    return new ModelAndView("term", "command", termClass);
    @RequestMapping(value="/getTerm", method=RequestMethod.POST)
    public String getTerms(@ModelAttribute("term") Term term, BindingResult result)
        String label = term.getTerm();
        //doing some calculation to term here
        result = ....
        return "redirect:"+ "graphPage.jsp";
    By searching, I found that Spring View Resolver only could process the redirected jsp under root directory (as same with index.jsp). In this case, the "result" seems not accepted by "graphPage". I also included UrlBasedViewResolver in XXX-servlet.xml as following:

    <bean id="viewResolver"
        <property name="viewClass"
            value="org.springframework.web.servlet.view.JstlView" />
        <property name="prefix" value="/WEB-INF/jsp/" />
        <property name="suffix" value=".jsp" />
    Sorry for the long question, please give any hint to do this. Thanks a lot.
