Spring MVC Showcase

Demonstrates the capabilities of the Spring MVC web framework through small, simple examples. After reviewing this showcase, you should have a good understanding of what Spring MVC can do and get a feel for how easy it is to use. Includes project code along with a supporting slideshow and screen cast.

In this showcase you'll see the following in action:

  • The simplest possible @Controller
  • Mapping Requests
  • Obtaining Request Data
  • Generating Responses
  • Message Converters
  • Rendering Views
  • Type Conversion
  • Validation
  • Forms
  • File Upload
  • Exception Handling

To get the code:

Clone the repository:

$ git clone git://

If this is your first time using Github, review to learn the basics.

To run the application:

From the command line with Maven:

$ cd spring-mvc-showcase
$ mvn jetty:run 

Access the deployed web application at: http://localhost:8080/spring-mvc-showcase/


This showcase originated from a blog post and was adapted into a SpringOne presentation called Mastering MVC 3.

A screen cast showing the showcase in action is available in QuickTime format.
