Can you provide application event example. I wrote one :

}
}

But this class is not running on application booting.
I want something like ServletContextListener in Spring 3.

For example, let say the base URL needs to be ‘mtools’ and we have 2 web applications a dashboard and tracking. The goal is to have the routes map like so ‘/mtools/dashboard’ and ‘/mtools/tracking’.

Nice blog written on “Spring MVC” which described information on its flow, controllers, handlers, etc. The information contained in the blog is very helpful for Java developers. Here is an another informative blog published on Spring MVC & MongoDB http://findnerd.com/list/view/Spring-MVC-and-MongoDB/2240/ , hope this will help developers too to understand the Spring MVC in a detailed way. While learning from this blog developers can also post & view java questions and answers to enhance the tech knowledge among the developers community.
