Method Detail

supports

public boolean supports(java.lang.Object handler)
Description copied from interface: HandlerAdapter
Given a handler instance, return whether or not this HandlerAdapter can support it. Typical HandlerAdapters will base the decision on the handler type. HandlerAdapters will usually only support one handler type each.

A typical implementation:

return (handler instanceof MyHandler);

Specified by:
supports in interface HandlerAdapter
Parameters:
handler - handler object to check
Returns:
whether or not this object can use the given handler

handle

public ModelAndView handle(javax.servlet.http.HttpServletRequest request,
                           javax.servlet.http.HttpServletResponse response,
                           java.lang.Object handler)
                    throws java.lang.Exception
Description copied from interface: HandlerAdapter
Use the given handler to handle this request. The workflow that is required may vary widely.

Specified by:
handle in interface HandlerAdapter
Parameters:
request - current HTTP request
response - current HTTP response
handler - handler to use. This object must have previously been passed to the supports method of this interface, which must have returned true.
Returns:
ModelAndView object with the name of the view and the required model data, or null if the request has been handled directly
Throws:
java.lang.Exception - in case of errors

getLastModified

public long getLastModified(javax.servlet.http.HttpServletRequest request,
                            java.lang.Object handler)
Description copied from interface: HandlerAdapter
Same contract as for HttpServlet's getLastModified method. Can simply return -1 if there's no support in the handler class.

Specified by:
getLastModified in interface HandlerAdapter
Parameters:
request - current HTTP request
handler - handler to use
Returns:
the lastModified value for the given handler
