SpringMVC Redirect Error

Hi all,

Rebuilding an old SpringMVC app of mine, this time using Hibernate and annotation-based configuration. I've set up a controller class with the following URL mappings:

Now, I'm new to annotation based controllers, so the following is the line I believe should be included in the applicationContext in order for the container to detect annotated controllers:

Right, so here's the problem. When I try and access the URL from firefox, it returns an error page stating that "The page isn't redirecting properly".

I tried increasing the redirect limit on firefox to no avail. I also used the 'LiveHTTPHeaders' plugin to check out the redirect headers:

HTTP/1.1 302 Moved Temporarily

Server: Apache-Coyote/1.1

Location: http://localhost:8080/spring-FlyPOST v5.0/event

Content-Type: text/html

Transfer-Encoding: chunked

From the full readout, it would seem that every redirect points to the same URL that I enter in the first place. Anyone have any idea whats goin on here?

I agree. Here's the link:
