  • Using VelocityLayoutView with VelocityViewResolver?

    Hi all,

    Is it possible to configure VelocityViewResolver to use VelocityLayoutView? As for VelocityToolboxView, setting the "toolboxConfigLocation" seems to do the trick. (I'm not sure if this implementation is a good idea, though.)

    Setting the "viewClass" works only if you don't want to configure VelocityLayoutView.

    Will I have to subclass VelocityViewResolver, or am I overlooking something?

    Well, here's what I've got so far:
    import java.util.Locale;
    import org.springframework.beans.BeansException;
    import org.springframework.web.servlet.View;
    import org.springframework.web.servlet.view.velocity.VelocityLayoutView;
    import org.springframework.web.servlet.view.velocity.VelocityView;
    import org.springframework.web.servlet.view.velocity.VelocityViewResolver;
    public class VelocityLayoutViewResolver extends VelocityViewResolver {
        private String layoutUrl = null;
        private String layoutKey = null;
        private String screenContentKey = null;
        public void setLayoutUrl(String layoutUrl) {
            this.layoutUrl = layoutUrl;
        public void setLayoutKey(String layoutKey) {
            this.layoutKey = layoutKey;
        public void setScreenContentKey(String screenContentKey) {
            this.screenContentKey = screenContentKey;
        public VelocityLayoutViewResolver() {
        public void setToolboxConfigLocation(String toolboxConfigLocation) {
            // ugly hack because super overrides viewClass.
            // definitly would be cleaner if toolbox support also was a subclass.
            Class clazz = this.getViewClass();
        protected View loadView(String viewName, Locale locale) throws BeansException {
            VelocityView view = (VelocityView) super.loadView(viewName, locale);
            if (this.layoutUrl != null) {
                ((VelocityLayoutView) view).setLayoutUrl(this.layoutUrl);
            if (this.layoutKey != null) {
                ((VelocityLayoutView) view).setLayoutKey(this.layoutKey);
            if (this.screenContentKey != null) {
                ((VelocityLayoutView) view).setScreenContentKey(this.screenContentKey);
            return view;

      For those of you interested, I posted the stuff to JIRA.
