Hi all,

What actually happens in the back-end when I return a String "redirect:hello.html".

How does this gets redirected to the path /hello.html

Please have a look at the following section of the Spring doc, it discusses first the redirect view and then the redirect: prefix and the reasoning behind introducing it. I think that should answer your question.
