Java Question

Get rid of first View Controller with Spring 4 and AngularJS

I use

RestController
to fetch data with
AngularJS
, but still I need regular controller to load
index.html
:

@Controller
public final class LayoutController {
@RequestMapping(value = "/")
public String getIndexPage() {
return "/resources/index";
}
}


Every other controllers are
RestController
s. If index file has
jsp
extension, I don't neeed
LayoutController
, but when it is
html
it is needed.
This is my
dispatcher
config:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<beans xmlns="http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans"
xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans/spring-beans.xsd"
>

<bean class="org.springframework.web.servlet.view.InternalResourceViewResolver">
<property name="order" value="1"></property>
<property name="prefix">
<value>/</value>
</property>
<property name="suffix">
<value>.html</value>
</property>
</bean>

</beans>


And this is part of
applicationContext
:

<mvc:annotation-driven/>
<tx:annotation-driven />

<mvc:resources mapping="/resources/**" location="WEB-INF/resources/" />


Is there a way to get rid of
LayoutController
when I want to use
index.html
instead of
index.jsp
? Thank you in advance for help.
Solution based on accepted answer:

<mvc:view-controller path="/" view-name="/resources/index.html"/>


Without
LayoutController
and
InternalResourceViewResolver
at all.

Answer

you can use view-controller,

<mvc:view-controller path="/" view-name="index"/>

I am assuming you already have a InternalResourceViewResolver pointing to the jsp location . If not you also have to include it in application context.

<bean id="viewResolver" class="org.springframework.web.servlet.view.InternalResourceViewResolver"> <property name="prefix" value="/WEB-INF/resources/" /> <property name="suffix" value=".html" /> </bean>

if you don't wanna include InternalResourceViewResolver you can also directly forward to html.

<mvc:view-controller path="/" view-name="forward:/WEB-INF/resources/index.html"/>

Hope , this is what you was looking for.
