  • Problem trying to resolve a file-system based view

    I'm porting a standard web/JSP application to Spring. I'm a newbie at Spring-MVC and, though I've gotten most of the app finished, am having trouble getting views to work. Specifically, Tomcat is saying that there's no mapping when trying to resolve a view.

    So here's what I'm doing: the web.xml is using a catch-all URL mapping to pass all requests to a DispatcherServlet. The URL mappers are in my spring file, using SimpleUrlHandlerMapping. I've also configured an InternalResourceViewResolver like this:

    <bean id="viewResolver" class="org.springframework.web.servlet.view.Intern alResourceViewResolver">
    <property name="prefix"><value>/WEB-INF/jsp/</value></property>
    <property name="suffix"><value>.page</value></property>
    <property name="alwaysInclude" value="true"/>

    In my hello world controller, I'm simply returning new ModelAndView("green"). Now Tomcat is giving me the error:

    No mapping for [/batch/WEB-INF/jsp/] in
    DispatcherServlet with name 'dispatcherServlet'

    Obviously the view is recognized, but instead of looking in the file system for the resource, it's doing a redirect. (Switching alwaysInclude to true was my naive attempt to resolve this--I get the same error if it's false.)

    Any ideas? It works if I forsake the view resolver and add explicit mapping to the web.xml, but I'd rather use a catch-all and simply do a file system lookup.

    This is using Tomcat 5.5 on Windows XP, Java 6.
