Spring MVC question

I am having issues with a Simple Spring app.The formView page shows up.On submit of the page,the successView page does not show up.I get the message-"page not found".I am pretty sure that the path which I specified is correct in the xml file is correct.

Below is the code in the xml file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<beans xmlns="http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans"

<!-- the application context definition for the springapp DispatcherServlet -->

<bean name="/hello.htm" class="stockmvc.web.HelloController">
<property name="formView" value="/jsp/newStock.jsp"/>
<property name="successView" value="/jsp/stockList.jsp"/>



The code in the controller class is as follows:

public class HelloController extends SimpleFormController {

public HelloController() {

public ModelAndView onSubmit(Object command) throws ServletException {

Stock stock = (Stock)command;

return new ModelAndView(new RedirectView(getSuccessView()));


I guess it can't get simpler than this.

Please advise.

It can, however, get easier to read ;)

Please UseCodeTags when posting code or configuration. Unformatted code and configuration is very difficult to read. You can edit your post to include them by using the button.
