Spring Recepies : URI redirection

Now if such an application is getting crawled by Google, the you have a mess to clear about. Clearing such a mess is not easy, some URLs should give 301 to a relevant page which some should show 404 and 500 status errors. More over there can be other requirements from the application like domain/sub-domain redirections eg making to, to etc. (more…)
