Default value of <mvc:redirect-view-controller> context-relative attribute is not "true" [SPR-12607] #17208

In practice the context-relative attribute on an mvc:redirect-view-controller element defaults to "false" when it's not set.
For example <mvc:redirect-view-controller path="/a" redirect-url="/b" /> will create a controller that redirects from http://localhost:8080/context/a to http://localhost:8080/b.

This contradicts the description of the attribute (from spring-mvc-4.1.xsd):
Whether to interpret a given redirect URL that starts with a slash ("/") as relative to the current ServletContext, i.e. as relative to the web application root. The default is "true".

Affects: 4.1.4

Hi Péter Kovács

This is now fixed, and the default value is now correctly enforced as "true" (as it should have been from the start - it's already the case when using the javaconfig counterpart of this configuration).

Thanks for reporting this!
