Annotation that can be used to associate the part of a "multipart/form-data" request
with a method argument.
Supported method argument types include
in conjunction with Spring's
javax.servlet.http.Part in conjunction with Servlet 3.0 multipart requests,
or otherwise for any other method argument, the content of the part is passed through an
HttpMessageConverter taking into consideration the 'Content-Type' header
of the request part. This is analogous to what @
RequestBody does to resolve
an argument based on the content of a non-multipart regular request.
Note that @
RequestParam annotation can also be used to associate the
part of a "multipart/form-data" request with a method argument supporting the same
method argument types. The main difference is that when the method argument is not a
RequestParam relies on type conversion via a registered
PropertyEditor while @
HttpMessageConverters taking into consideration the 'Content-Type' header
of the request part. @
RequestParam is likely to be used with name-value form
fields while @
RequestPart is likely to be used with parts containing more
complex content (e.g. JSON, XML).
