Spring 4 REST Example

This tutorial provides a simple example for writing the Spring MVC REST services using the Spring 4 APIs. We have written several articles about the spring 4 features in our previous articles. The REST implementation on Spriing 4 also very much similiar to the previous releases. Here I have provided the sample source code what I have used to implement the REST services. If you have any questions, please write it in the comments section.

	@RequestMapping(value = "/hello", method = RequestMethod.GET)
	public String hello(ModelMap model) {
		model.addAttribute("msg", "JavaBeat Hello World!");
		return "helloWorld";
	}

	@RequestMapping(value = "/greetings/{msg}", method = RequestMethod.GET)
	public String greetingsMsg(@PathVariable String msg, ModelMap model) {
		model.addAttribute("msg", msg);
		return "helloWorld";
	}
