Starter for Spring MVC projects

This is a blank Spring MVC project that will connect to any repository, and trivially list its documents. It uses the Java developement kit, and provide a few helpers to integrate with the Spring framework.

Getting started

Launch the starter project

Assuming you've installed Maven, just run mvn jetty:run, and open your browser at http://localhost:8080/

Your Spring MVC starter project is now up and running! However, by default, it will list and display documents from our "Les Bonnes Choses" example repository.

Configure the starter project

Edit the web.xml file to make the application point to the correct repository in the prismic filter:

  <!-- -->
        <!-- param-name>accessToken</param-name>
        <param-value>xxxx</param-value -->

To set up the Previews, go to the Applications panel in your repository's settings, and add a new preview site. For example to test locally, you can create a local site with http://localhost:8080/preview as the URL.

You may have to restart your Spring MVC server.
