Project Structure


A Project Object Model or POM is the fundamental unit of work in Maven. It is an XML file that contains information about the project and configuration details utilized by Maven to build the project. It contains default values for most projects.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<project xmlns="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0"
<!-- lookup parent from repository -->
<!-- spring mvc, rest -->

Home Controller.class

We indite a controller class to handle requests emanating from the client. The @Controller annotation indicates that a particular class serves the role of a controller.
public class HomeController {
private MyResourceHttpRequestHandler handler;
private final static File MP4_FILE =
new File("D:\\videofiles\\video1.mp4");

public String home() {
return "index";

// supports byte-range requests
public void byterange(HttpServletRequest request,
HttpServletResponse response)
throws ServletException, IOException {
request.setAttribute(MyResourceHttpRequestHandler.ATTR_FILE, MP4_FILE);
handler.handleRequest(request, response);


public class MyResourceHttpRequestHandler extends ResourceHttpRequestHandler {
final static String ATTR_FILE = MyResourceHttpRequestHandler.
class.getName() + ".file";

protected Resource getResource(HttpServletRequest request) throws
IOException {
final File file = (File) request.getAttribute(ATTR_FILE);
return new FileSystemResource(file);

Spring Boot(Main class)

A Spring Boot application's main class is a class that contains a public static void main() method that commences up the Spring ApplicationContext. By default, if the main class isn't explicitly designated, Spring will probe for one in the classpath at compile time and fail to commence if none or multiple of them are found.

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


<div class="row align-items-center justify-content-center">
<video width="1000" height="400" controls>
<source src="byterange" type="video/mp4">
