I am using spring-boot 2.5.0 and maven as dependency management tool. I have following dependencies as of now in my project.
"<dependencies> <dependency> <groupId>org.springframework.boot</groupId> <artifactId>spring-boot-starter-web</artifactId> </dependency> <dependency> <groupId>org.projectlombok</groupId> <artifactId>lombok</artifactId> <optional>true</optional> </dependency> <dependency> <groupId>org.springframework.boot</groupId> <artifactId>spring-boot-starter-test</artifactId> <scope>test</scope> </dependency> </dependencies>"
I want to use jsp instead of thymeleaf but when I put my “index.html” file inside templates or static sub-folder of resources folder it doesn’t recognize the html file and throws white label error.When I added the thymeleaf dependency it worked perfectly and recognized the html file. So, what should I do to make spring-boot detect my html file without adding thymeleaf dependency. By the way I have never used jsp before.
It seems you are missing either of the two things.
you should put below the property with the desired value in the property/yaml file
spring.mvc.view.prefix: <location of html/jsp>
check at your controller whether you are sending the correct view name or not.
