1. Overview

This example of @PostRequest and @GetRequest in Spring 4.3 new feature.

Spring Framework 4.3 introduces the following method-level composed variants of the @RequestMapping annotation that help to simplify mappings for common HTTP methods and better express the semantics of the annotated handler method. For example, a @GetMapping can be read as a GET @RequestMapping.

  • @GetMapping
  • @PostMapping
  • @PutMapping
  • @DeleteMapping
  • @PatchMapping

Use @RequestMapping(method=GET) or @GetMapping to narrow the mapping.

Use @RequestMapping(method=POST) or @PostMapping to narrow the mapping.

Note:

To enable @GetRequest and @PostRequest must need to add <mvc:annotation-driven/> in -servlet.xml file.

@EnableWebMvc for java based configuration.
