I'm trying to convert my spring mvc project to use annotation. So far, I have configured the default View Controller. Now, I'm working on an Edit controller that I can't get to work probably because I don't have the context xml settings configured properly. My view.jsp contains a link (http:yaddayadda.org?action=edit). In my original project I had 'edit' map to my EditController. But now I can't get the annotation configuration to recognize this action.
Yes, I am using DefaultAnnotationHandlerMapping. After doing some intensive searching on the topic I ran into this thread that described exactly what I was trying to do: http://forum.springsource.org/showthread.php?t=47755 So, I replied to the forum post. It turned out that I needed to change the order of my controllers in the context file. After doing that step I started getting an error that was due to malformed method signatures. I'm in the process of fixing those and hope to get everything squared away soon.
Maybe someone who has had a similar problem will benefit from the posted thread.
