Class HttpRequestHandlerServlet

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    java.io.Serializable, Servlet, ServletConfig


    public class HttpRequestHandlerServlet
    extends HttpServlet
    Simple HttpServlet that delegates to an HttpRequestHandler bean defined in Spring's root web application context. The target bean name must match the HttpRequestHandlerServlet servlet-name as defined in web.xml.

    This can for example be used to expose a single Spring remote exporter, such as HttpInvokerServiceExporter or HessianServiceExporter, per HttpRequestHandlerServlet definition. This is a minimal alternative to defining remote exporters as beans in a DispatcherServlet context (with advanced mapping and interception facilities being available there).
