org.springframework.web.method.annotation
Class MapMethodProcessor

java.lang.Object
  extended by org.springframework.web.method.annotation.MapMethodProcessor
All Implemented Interfaces:
HandlerMethodArgumentResolver, HandlerMethodReturnValueHandler

public class MapMethodProcessor
extends java.lang.Object
implements HandlerMethodArgumentResolver, HandlerMethodReturnValueHandler

Resolves Map method arguments and handles Map return values.

A Map return value can be interpreted in more than one ways depending on the presence of annotations like @ModelAttribute or @ResponseBody. Therefore this handler should be configured after the handlers that support these annotations.

Since:
3.1

Method Detail

supportsParameter

public boolean supportsParameter(MethodParameter parameter)
Description copied from interface: HandlerMethodArgumentResolver
Whether the given method parameter is supported by this resolver.

Specified by:
supportsParameter in interface HandlerMethodArgumentResolver
Parameters:
parameter - the method parameter to check
Returns:
true if this resolver supports the supplied parameter; false otherwise

resolveArgument

public java.lang.Object resolveArgument(MethodParameter parameter,
                                        ModelAndViewContainer mavContainer,
                                        NativeWebRequest webRequest,
                                        WebDataBinderFactory binderFactory)
                                 throws java.lang.Exception
Description copied from interface: HandlerMethodArgumentResolver
Resolves a method parameter into an argument value from a given request. A ModelAndViewContainer provides access to the model for the request. A WebDataBinderFactory provides a way to create a WebDataBinder instance when needed for data binding and type conversion purposes.

Specified by:
resolveArgument in interface HandlerMethodArgumentResolver
Parameters:
parameter - the method parameter to resolve. This parameter must have previously been passed to HandlerMethodArgumentResolver.supportsParameter(org.springframework.core.MethodParameter) and it must have returned true
mavContainer - the ModelAndViewContainer for the current request
webRequest - the current request
binderFactory - a factory for creating WebDataBinder instances
Returns:
the resolved argument value, or null.
Throws:
java.lang.Exception - in case of errors with the preparation of argument values

supportsReturnType

public boolean supportsReturnType(MethodParameter returnType)
Description copied from interface: HandlerMethodReturnValueHandler
Whether the given method return type is supported by this handler.

Specified by:
supportsReturnType in interface HandlerMethodReturnValueHandler
Parameters:
returnType - the method return type to check
Returns:
true if this handler supports the supplied return type; false otherwise

handleReturnValue

public void handleReturnValue(java.lang.Object returnValue,
                              MethodParameter returnType,
                              ModelAndViewContainer mavContainer,
                              NativeWebRequest webRequest)
                       throws java.lang.Exception
Description copied from interface: HandlerMethodReturnValueHandler
Handle the given return value by adding attributes to the model and setting a view or setting the ModelAndViewContainer.setRequestHandled(boolean) flag to true to indicate the response has been handled directly.

Specified by:
handleReturnValue in interface HandlerMethodReturnValueHandler
Parameters:
returnValue - the value returned from the handler method
returnType - the type of the return value. This type must have previously been passed to HandlerMethodReturnValueHandler.supportsReturnType(org.springframework.core.MethodParameter) and it must have returned true
mavContainer - the ModelAndViewContainer for the current request
webRequest - the current request
Throws:
java.lang.Exception - if the return value handling results in an error
