public class AnnotationMethodHandlerAdapter
extends PortletContentGenerator
implements HandlerAdapter, Ordered, BeanFactoryAware

Implementation of the HandlerAdapter interface that maps handler methods based on portlet modes, action/render phases and request parameters expressed through the RequestMapping annotation.

Supports request parameter binding through the RequestParam annotation. Also supports the ModelAttribute annotation for exposing model attribute values to the view, as well as InitBinder for binder initialization methods and SessionAttributes for automatic session management of specific attributes.

This adapter can be customized through various bean properties. A common use case is to apply shared binder initialization logic through a custom WebBindingInitializer.

Method Detail

setWebBindingInitializer

public void setWebBindingInitializer(WebBindingInitializer webBindingInitializer)
Specify a WebBindingInitializer which will apply pre-configured configuration to every DataBinder that this controller uses.


setSessionAttributeStore

public void setSessionAttributeStore(SessionAttributeStore sessionAttributeStore)
Specify the strategy to store session attributes with.

Default is DefaultSessionAttributeStore, storing session attributes in the PortletSession, using the same attribute name as in the model.


setCacheSecondsForSessionAttributeHandlers

public void setCacheSecondsForSessionAttributeHandlers(int cacheSecondsForSessionAttributeHandlers)
Cache content produced by @SessionAttributes annotated handlers for the given number of seconds. Default is 0, preventing caching completely.

In contrast to the "cacheSeconds" property which will apply to all general handlers (but not to @SessionAttributes annotated handlers), this setting will apply to @SessionAttributes annotated handlers only.

See Also:
PortletContentGenerator.setCacheSeconds(int), SessionAttributes

setSynchronizeOnSession

public void setSynchronizeOnSession(boolean synchronizeOnSession)
Set if controller execution should be synchronized on the session, to serialize parallel invocations from the same client.

More specifically, the execution of each handler method will get synchronized if this flag is "true". The best available session mutex will be used for the synchronization; ideally, this will be a mutex exposed by HttpSessionMutexListener.

The session mutex is guaranteed to be the same object during the entire lifetime of the session, available under the key defined by the SESSION_MUTEX_ATTRIBUTE constant. It serves as a safe reference to synchronize on for locking on the current session.

In many cases, the PortletSession reference itself is a safe mutex as well, since it will always be the same object reference for the same active logical session. However, this is not guaranteed across different servlet containers; the only 100% safe way is a session mutex.

See Also:
HttpSessionMutexListener, PortletUtils.getSessionMutex(javax.portlet.PortletSession)

setParameterNameDiscoverer

public void setParameterNameDiscoverer(ParameterNameDiscoverer parameterNameDiscoverer)
Set the ParameterNameDiscoverer to use for resolving method parameter names if needed (e.g. for default attribute names).

Default is a LocalVariableTableParameterNameDiscoverer.


setCustomArgumentResolver

public void setCustomArgumentResolver(WebArgumentResolver argumentResolver)
Set a custom WebArgumentResolver to use for special method parameter types. Such a custom WebArgumentResolver will kick in first, having a chance to resolve an argument value before the standard argument handling kicks in.


setCustomArgumentResolvers

public void setCustomArgumentResolvers(WebArgumentResolver[] argumentResolvers)
Set one or more custom WebArgumentResolvers to use for special method parameter types. Any such custom WebArgumentResolver will kick in first, having a chance to resolve an argument value before the standard argument handling kicks in.


setCustomModelAndViewResolver

public void setCustomModelAndViewResolver(ModelAndViewResolver customModelAndViewResolver)
Set a custom ModelAndViewResolvers to use for special method return types. Such a custom ModelAndViewResolver will kick in first, having a chance to resolve an return value before the standard ModelAndView handling kicks in.


setCustomModelAndViewResolvers

public void setCustomModelAndViewResolvers(ModelAndViewResolver[] customModelAndViewResolvers)
Set one or more custom ModelAndViewResolvers to use for special method return types. Any such custom ModelAndViewResolver will kick in first, having a chance to resolve an return value before the standard ModelAndView handling kicks in.


setOrder

public void setOrder(int order)
Specify the order value for this HandlerAdapter bean.

Default value is Integer.MAX_VALUE, meaning that it's non-ordered.

See Also:
Ordered.getOrder()

getOrder

public int getOrder()
Description copied from interface: Ordered
Return the order value of this object, with a higher value meaning greater in terms of sorting.

Normally starting with 0, with Integer.MAX_VALUE indicating the greatest value. Same order values will result in arbitrary positions for the affected objects.

Higher values can be interpreted as lower priority. As a consequence, the object with the lowest value has highest priority (somewhat analogous to Servlet "load-on-startup" values).

Specified by:
getOrder in interface Ordered
Returns:
the order value

setBeanFactory

public void setBeanFactory(BeanFactory beanFactory)
Description copied from interface: BeanFactoryAware
Callback that supplies the owning factory to a bean instance.

Invoked after the population of normal bean properties but before an initialization callback such as InitializingBean.afterPropertiesSet() or a custom init-method.

Specified by:
setBeanFactory in interface BeanFactoryAware
Parameters:
beanFactory - owning BeanFactory (never null). The bean can immediately call methods on the factory.
See Also:
BeanInitializationException

supports

public boolean supports(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
