mvc:default-servlet-handler

In this section, you will learn about configuring <mvc:default-servlet-handler> tag using using Java config or XML Namespace.

The <mvc:default-servlet-handler> tag configures a handler for processing static resources by forwarding static resource requests to the default Servlet of the Servlet container.

The default configuration for this in XML is :

<mvc:default-servlet-handler/>

You can do the same default configuration using MVC Java config as follows :

@Configuration
@EnableWebMvc
public class MyWebAppConfig extends WebMvcConfigurerAdapter {
	
	@Override
	public void configureDefaultServletHandling(DefaultServletHandlerConfigurer configurer) {
		configurer.enable();
	}

}

At startup, DefaultServletHttpRequestHandler try to auto-detect the container's default Servlet by utilizing a list of known names. But if it can fails due to unknown Servlet container is used or default Servlet has been custom configured with a different name. In this case you need to provide the name of the default Servlet explicitly. You can do this as shown below :

@Configuration
@EnableWebMvc
public class MyWebAppConfig extends WebMvcConfigurerAdapter {
	
	@Override
	public void configureDefaultServletHandling(DefaultServletHandlerConfigurer configurer) {
		configurer.enable("myDefaultServlet");
	}

}

You can do the same using XML configuration as follows :

<mvc:default-servlet-handler default-servlet-name="myDefaultServlet"/>
