Class RequestContext

java.lang.Object
  extended by org.springframework.web.servlet.support.RequestContext
Direct Known Subclasses:
JspAwareRequestContext

public class RequestContext
extends java.lang.Object

Context holder for request-specific state, like current web application context, current locale, current theme, and potential binding errors. Provides easy access to localized messages and Errors instances.

Suitable for exposition to views, and usage within JSP's "useBean" tag, JSP scriptlets, JSTL EL, Velocity templates, etc. Necessary for views that do not have access to the servlet request, like Velocity templates.

Can be instantiated manually, or automatically exposed to views as model attribute via AbstractView's "requestContextAttribute" property.

Will also work outside of DispatcherServlet requests, accessing the root WebApplicationContext and using an appropriate fallback for the locale (the HttpServletRequest's primary locale).

Constructor Detail

RequestContext

public RequestContext(javax.servlet.http.HttpServletRequest request)
Create a new RequestContext for the given request, using the request attributes for Errors retrieval.

This only works with InternalResourceViews, as Errors instances are part of the model and not normally exposed as request attributes. It will typically be used within JSPs or custom tags.

Will only work within a DispatcherServlet request. Pass in a ServletContext to be able to fallback to the root WebApplicationContext.

Parameters:
request - current HTTP request
See Also:
DispatcherServlet, RequestContext(javax.servlet.http.HttpServletRequest, javax.servlet.ServletContext)

Returns:
whether default HTML escaping is enabled (null = no explicit default)

A default UrlPathHelper is always available.

Returns:
a URL that points back to the server with an absolute path (also URL-encoded accordingly)

getContextUrl

public java.lang.String getContextUrl(java.lang.String relativeUrl,
                                      java.util.Map<java.lang.String,?> params)
Return a context-aware URl for the given relative URL with placeholders (named keys with braces {}). For example, send in a relative URL foo/{bar}?spam={spam} and a parameter map {bar=baz,spam=nuts} and the result will be [contextpath]/foo/baz?spam=nuts.

Parameters:

See Also:
HttpServletRequest.getContextPath(), HttpServletRequest.getServletPath(), getUrlPathHelper()

getRequestUri

public java.lang.String getRequestUri()

Note this implementation will correctly resolve to the URI of any originating root request in the presence of a forwarded request. However, this can only work when the Servlet 2.4 'forward' request attributes are present.

Delegates to the UrlPathHelper for decoding.

See Also:
getQueryString(), UrlPathHelper.getOriginatingRequestUri(javax.servlet.http.HttpServletRequest), getUrlPathHelper()

getQueryString

public java.lang.String getQueryString()
Return the query string of the current request, that is, the part after the request path. This is particularly useful for building an HTML form action target in combination with the original request URI.
