Class BeanNameViewResolver

All Implemented Interfaces:
Aware, ApplicationContextAware, Ordered, ServletContextAware, ViewResolver

public class BeanNameViewResolver extends WebApplicationObjectSupport implements ViewResolver, Ordered
A simple implementation of ViewResolver that interprets a view name as a bean name in the current application context, i.e. typically in the XML file of the executing DispatcherServlet or in a corresponding configuration class.

Note: This ViewResolver implements the Ordered interface in order to allow for flexible participation in ViewResolver chaining. For example, some special views could be defined via this ViewResolver (giving it 0 as "order" value), while all remaining views could be resolved by a UrlBasedViewResolver.

    • setOrder

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

      The default value is Ordered.LOWEST_PRECEDENCE, meaning non-ordered.

    • getOrder

      public int getOrder()
      Description copied from interface: Ordered
      Get the order value of this object.

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

      Same order values will result in arbitrary sort positions for the affected objects.

      Specified by:
      getOrder in interface Ordered
      the order value

    • resolveViewName

      @Nullable public View resolveViewName(String viewName, Locale locale) throws BeansException
      Description copied from interface: ViewResolver
      Resolve the given view by name.

      Note: To allow for ViewResolver chaining, a ViewResolver should return null if a view with the given name is not defined in it. However, this is not required: Some ViewResolvers will always attempt to build View objects with the given name, unable to return null (rather throwing an exception when View creation failed).

      Specified by:
      resolveViewName in interface ViewResolver
      viewName - name of the view to resolve
      locale - the Locale in which to resolve the view. ViewResolvers that support internationalization should respect this.
      the View object, or null if not found (optional, to allow for ViewResolver chaining)
