I had been searching and searching and to no avail.
Can some one please show me how to set up spring portlet to use Freemarker instead of jsp/jstl in an spring mvc framework please??
Havent had much luck finding it on the web
well specifically want to know whats the portlet equivilant of this
<property name=”order” value=”0″/>
given that there is no SimpleUrlHandlerMapping in the web.portlet packages in spring.
Okay. That doesn’t have anything to do with JSP / FreeMarker. Just a straightforward “how does Spring MVC map portlet requests to controllers/views?” thing.
Are you using Spring 2.5 or an older version? Reason I ask is, the first choice is whether you are going to use the Annotation-based Controllers or the Interface-based Controllers. Mapping is quite different depending on these. If you are using 2.5, I highly recommend going with the Annotation-based controllers.
