package com.knowledgefactory.knowledgefactorydemo;

import org.springframework.stereotype.Controller;
import org.springframework.ui.Model;
import org.springframework.web.bind.annotation.GetMapping;

@Controller
public class HomeController {
@GetMapping({ "/", "/welcome" })
public String hello(Model model) {
return "index";
}
}

4. Spring Boot

package com.knowledgefactory.knowledgefactorydemo;

import org.springframework.boot.SpringApplication;
import org.springframework.boot.autoconfigure.SpringBootApplication;

@SpringBootApplication
public class KnowledgefactorydemoApplication {
public static void main(String[] args) {
SpringApplication.run(KnowledgefactorydemoApplication.class, args);
}
}

5. View Template

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="en">
<head>
<meta charset="UTF-8">
<title>Hello Mustache</title>
