I am now using Spring MVC, Webflow, Security, freemarker to build an application.

When i tried to access a login page in which the webflow access url was written, the error came out and i cannot access to that page.
According to the console, it seems that ${flowExecutionUrl} is null and freemarker cannot display the page.
can anyone give me some help??? thank you.

code is as followed:

login.ftl



app-ctx.xml


app-ctx-sec.xml



/WEB-INF/flows/register/register-flow.xml

Tip: If the failing expression is known to be legally refer to something that's null or missing, either specify a default value like myOptionalVar!myDefault, or use <#if myOptionalVar??>when-present<#else>when-missing</#if>. (These only cover the last step of the expression; to cover the whole expression, use parenthesis: (myOptionalVar.foo)!myDefault, (myOptionalVar.foo)??

solved.

After numerous tests, i found out how to get into the webflow with freemarker template.
i dunno whether it is a good approach or not. Just make a reference in here and hope it can help someone who will face the same problem in the future.

the xml configuration is the same but the the webflow's view files must be placed into where the views' folder are.
in this case, they must be put into here: /WEB-INF/views/ (please refer to the previous xml configuration).
By the way, the webflow' xml config file can be put into file folders within the classpath and its path must be matched with the Flow Registry one.

Then, ${flowExecutionUrl} in a page which is the entry to the first view-state should be revised to: /your_context_path/your_flow_id.

just like this:



${contextPath}register"

${contextPath}: it has been assigned in the server side, not a SpEl.
register: flow id.

Then, you can be navigated into the webflow with FreeMarker ^_^
