Spring 2.5 and JSON and JSP/AJAX working together

I'm trying really hard to make sense of this stuff without trying to get confused.

My objective is simple...
1. I have a list of folders that I have obtained using my controller and they are organized into a HashMap.
2. I add the new "folders" map as an attribute to my model (model.addAttribute("folders",folders))
3. I return to my jsp page.
4. Now, I can view the results of my hashmap using the json tab library without any problem

But I would like to make use of the spring-json functionality and return "folders" as a json object instead of a HashMap. Once I have the json "folders" object I am then assuming I can use the data towards the jquery treeview plugin.

Is there anyone that can offer my some ideas or suggestions on how to do this successfully? I'm thinking I am overwhelming myself with documentation that is well over my head and more complicated than what I'm trying to do. Given some documentation, it appears that I may need to modify my context file adding the XmlViewResolver , while creating another context file (project-views.xml), along with writing a jsonView bean.

Thanks so much.
