Use the @RestController Annotation

Use the @RestController Annotation

It is a good idea to use @RestController (instead of simply @Controller), because it ensures you that it will return a Java Object rather than a reference to an HTML template, as you can see in the example:

@RestControllerpublic class MyController {     @RequestMapping("/")    public String home() {        return "Hello";    }}
