Class ParameterMappingInterceptor

  extended by org.springframework.web.portlet.handler.HandlerInterceptorAdapter
      extended by org.springframework.web.portlet.handler.ParameterMappingInterceptor
All Implemented Interfaces:

public class ParameterMappingInterceptor
extends HandlerInterceptorAdapter

Interceptor to forward a request parameter from the ActionRequest to the RenderRequest.

This can be useful when using ParameterHandlerMapping or PortletModeParameterHandlerMapping. It will ensure that the parameter that was used to map the ActionRequest to a handler will be forwarded to the RenderRequest so that it will also be mapped the same way.

When using this Interceptor, you can still change the value of the mapping parameter in your handler in order to change where the render request will get mapped.

Be aware that this Interceptor does call ActionResponse.setRenderParameter, which means that you will not be able to call ActionResponse.sendRedirect in your handler. If you may need to issue a redirect, then you should avoid this Interceptor and either write a different one that does this in a different way, or manually forward the parameter from within your handler(s).

Thanks to Rainer Schmitz for suggesting this mapping strategy!

public boolean preHandleAction(javax.portlet.ActionRequest request,
                               javax.portlet.ActionResponse response,

If request is an ActionRequest, get handler mapping parameter and add it to the ActionResponse.

Specified by:
preHandleAction in interface HandlerInterceptor
preHandleAction in class HandlerInterceptorAdapter
request - current portlet action request
response - current portlet action response
handler - chosen handler to execute, for type and/or instance evaluation
true if the execution chain should proceed with the next interceptor or the handler itself. Else, DispatcherPortlet assumes that this interceptor has already dealt with the response itself
