Spring http/web forward not working with spring-reactive

I am trying to forward a request from one controller to another, but instead I am getting an exception

java.lang.IllegalStateException: Could not resolve view with name
'forward:/test2'. at

Here are my controllers :

class TestController {
public String showTestPage() {
return "forward:/test2";

public class TestController2 {
public String showTestPage() {
return "testPageView";

I am using spring-boot

springBootVersion = '2.0.0.BUILD-SNAPSHOT'


public class DemoApplication {

public static void main(String[] args) {, args);

This is not supported at the moment.

Please create a new issue on (project: Spring Framework, component: reactive). Some concepts don't really map into the reactive world, so I'm not 100% sure this should be implemented.
