Class BeanNameViewResolver

All Implemented Interfaces:
ApplicationContextAware, ViewResolver

public class BeanNameViewResolver
extends ApplicationObjectSupport
implements ViewResolver

Simple implementation of ViewResolver that interprets a view name as bean name in the current application context, i.e. in the XML file of the executing DispatcherServlet.

This resolver can be handy for small applications, keeping all definitions ranging from controllers to views are in the same place. For normal applications, XmlViewResolver will be the better choice, as it separates the XML bean definitions in a dedicated views file. View beans should virtually never have references to any other application beans - such a separation will make this clear.

This ViewResolver does not support internationalization. Consider ResourceBundleViewResolver if you need to apply different view resources per locale.
