Description Petr Jiricka 2009-10-29 09:32:38 UTC
Copy/pasted from a user post on the Spring forum:

"If someone where to create a netbeans project, which means the following, I would be happy, impressed and belated!

1) Support for extension-less URLS (
2) Controllers would allow behavior as if inheriting from MultiActionController 
3) I want to use each controller to use several actions
4) I want URL binding to be done using annotations
5) I want controllers defined using annotations and not XML, heck, even using the Url Controller name binding
functionality would make me happy."

What about adding a combobox into a new Spring MVC project for picking the mapping type (annotations vs. XML)?

Currently, XML is used by default while the annotations are the more convenient way of working with Spring MVC.

Thanks that's a good idea Petr. But I'm afraid that it's really unsure when it could be done. 

Anyway thanks again.
