Hello, I am trying to learn Spring MVC on NetBeans using Hibernate and frankly I am stuck. Any help is appreciated. I am only trying to do a very simple "hello world" type site.
Somone would on the first page hit a submit button and the resulting page would have a list of values from the DB. Sounds pretty simple right?
I've included 5 very short files here that will hopefully help you to help me if you are so inclined.
"web.xml", "dispatcher-servlet.xml","index.jsp", "TeamController.java", "secondView.jsp"
The way I understand how Spring MVC should work, using my files, is as follows...
1) Running the project from NetBeans, the index.jsp file is brought up.
This happens because the Web.xml is consulted, which has the following line...
one the redirect.jsp is consulted, we see that it has the following...
"<% response.sendRedirect("index.htm"); %>"
so with that redirect we go back to the web.xml which has the following...
so with that request coming in as index.htm it is to be handled by the dispatcher servlet.
In the dispatcher servlet's config file, the view resolver will add the following...
so index.htm gets changed to /WEN-INF/jsp/index.jsp and that page is brought up.
2) At this point the index.jsp is brought up. The only thing in this file is a form with a submit button. The intent is just to have someone press the button and info from the DB is returned on screen. I have Hibernate as part of this web project and I have created a java class "Team.java" based on a DB table "Team". It is populated with a few records.
Currently what I am seeing is that once the index.jsp comes up and I hit submit, it is giving a 404.
This is the URL shown for the form
http://localhost:8080/HelloWebFour/index.htm if I do a view source it shows it as index.jsp. When I hit submit it gives a 404 with this url
btw, "HelloWebFour" is the name of my project in NetBeans.
I am not sure what is happening, if my understanding is right or if I need to add anything. any help is appreciated...
The very short code files are below...
