Hello All,

Problem description:

I have a registerService which throws a RegistrationException if a username or email already exists in database.
On registration page, when user submits the form,I would like the user to see the message contained within the exception on the same page with the filled data, instead of forwarding them to an error page.

is this possible in spring?? if yes, how?

Yes, Its possible, No need to throw an exception, take a look at Validator interface in Spring MVC,.. you can just validate the username or email..
I agree. Here's the link:
