  • mvc:annotation-driven and Tuckey

    hi All,

    I was using Tuckey url for url re-writing. This is how it looks:
    and this is how I have my entitymanager set up in web.xml:
    	     <!-- <url-pattern>/*</url-pattern>-->
    I would like to take advantage of Spring 3 validations.
    In my presentation-context file I added this:
    <mvc:annotation-driven />

    As soon as I do that I get 404 errors. The mapping is off.

    my controllers are mapped to key words without the "pf".
    e.g. /welcome NOT /pf/welcome

    the "pf" was just there to forward it to a sort of virtual path only known to the dispatchservlet for processing...the url's are all independant.

    IS there a way to use Tuckey and <mvc:annotation-driven />???

    guys any clues would help...just wanna add
    <mvc:annotation-driven />

      Solved!! but need more input

      Hi ,

      first of all I'm kinda disapointed of the lack of support for this thread...I think since Spring MVC 3 has some new constructs, that its good to disucss this as much as possible seeing that the documentation isn't the best.

      Here is what I did to solve this problem.
      The conflict started with <mvc:annotation-driven />

      The point of this exercise was to use JSR 303 validation which is why I included <mvc:annotation-driven /> to begin with.
      I am not sure if this is the best approach or not...personally I would like to stick to conventions and would rather use <mvc:annotation-driven />.
      Here is what I did:
      1)I commented out <mvc:annotation-driven />
      2) I did the following:

      <bean class="org.springframework.web.servlet.mvc.annotation.AnnotationMethodHandlerAdapter">
          <property name="webBindingInitializer">
              <bean class="">
                  <property name="validator" ref="validator" />
      <!--    <property name="messageConverters">-->
      <!--        <list>-->
      <!--           <bean class="org.springframework.http.converter.ByteArrayHttpMessageConverter" />-->
      <!--           <bean class="org.springframework.http.converter.StringHttpMessageConverter" />-->
      <!--           <bean class="org.springframework.http.converter.FormHttpMessageConverter" />-->
      <!--           <bean class="org.springframework.http.converter.xml.SourceHttpMessageConverter" />-->
      <!--        </list>-->
      <!--    </property>-->
      <property name="order" value="1" />
      <bean id="validator" class="org.springframework.validation.beanvalidation.LocalValidatorFactoryBean" />
      In this way, I was still able to use Tuckey, along with AnnotationMethodHandlerAdapter which I marked as "order 1"...which means that it will run after Tuckey.

      The problem was this was defaulting to oder 0 which was over-riding tuckey so my request mappings were not being resolved..

      personally I do not understand what I did , I do not know what AnnotationMethodHandlerAdapter really does...I just pieced together different things online...

      All of this to use the @Validate method on my domain objects which I think is pretty cool as you get instant validations of the entity object.

      If any of you know how to make <mvc:annotation-driven /> work with Tuckey, please let me know...I suspect there is some switch you tell <mvc:annotation-driven /> to recognize some other mvc mechanism and to fire with a higher order....

        Solution is...don't use Tuckey...Spring web mvc has its own methods to do url rewriting, read the documentation and experiment with the mvc namespace...
