Annotation Type RestController

     @Documented
     @Controller
     @ResponseBody
    public @interface RestController
    A convenience annotation that is itself annotated with @Controller and @ResponseBody.

    Types that carry this annotation are treated as controllers where @RequestMapping methods assume @ResponseBody semantics by default.

    NOTE: @RestController is processed if an appropriate HandlerMapping-HandlerAdapter pair is configured such as the RequestMappingHandlerMapping-RequestMappingHandlerAdapter pair which are the default in the MVC Java config and the MVC namespace.
