Java Servlet API provides a rich and customizable framework for the development of web applications. However, in the professional Java development world, that is often not enough. While Java Servlet API provides low-level interfaces and classes for interaction with web requests, efficient programming often requires an abstraction layer on top of the core servlet components. We are going to take a look at one such framework in this chapter: Spring MVC. In this chapter we are going to
  • Describe the Model-View-Controller pattern, which is the core part of Spring MVC

  • Discuss the Front Controller pattern that Spring MVC also implements

  • Introduce the Spring framework, of which Spring MVC is part

  • Implement and configure a sample Spring MVC application, by adding model, view, and controller components
