spring boot MVC config

To configure Spring Boot MVC, follow these steps:

  1. Add the Spring Boot Starter Web dependency to your project's build file.
  2. Create a Java class annotated with @Controller to define a controller.
  3. Use @RequestMapping to map HTTP requests to handler methods within the controller.
  4. Define a method to handle the specific request and return a view name or a response entity.
  5. Optionally, use @RequestParam or @PathVariable to handle request parameters or path variables.
  6. Configure view resolver beans to resolve view names to actual views.
  7. Define the view templates using a supported template engine like Thymeleaf, FreeMarker, or JSP.
  8. Configure static resources location for serving CSS, JavaScript, and other static files.
  9. Start the application and access the defined endpoints using a web browser or API client.
