Name Description Data type Required Default value
engine Rendering engine type. String No Inferred from the target extension.
target The view file or template. String Yes -
defaultView This is the second attribute Boolean No False

Engine: The engine identifies the ViewRenderer that will be called to render the given view template. The ViewRenderers are registered in the IoC with a given ID that is by convention identical to the extension on it's templates files.

I.e.: JSPViewRenderer is registered as "jsp".

Only when this convention is not respected will we have to declare with ViewRenderer engine we want to use, with the correspondent IoC registered ViewRenderer id.


@StageDefinition(name = "MyStage", service = "myservice")
@View(target = "myView.jsp")
public class MyStage {

@StageDefinition(name = "MyStage", service = "myservice")
public class MyStage {

 ViewObject view;

 @View(engine="JSP", target="anotherView.jsp")
 ViewObject view2;
