Multiple JSP folders in Spring MVC enabled application

I'm working on a Spring MVC project where I put all the jsp files in WEB-INF/views

What I want to do is to add more folders for the jsp's, say views/user, views/admin, views/files etc, to keep all the jsp files more organized.

This doesn't seem to work with the InternalResourceViewResolver, since you can only specify one folder for all the views (jsp's). Is there a workaround or an alternative viewResolver to solve this issue?

I've pasted a code snippet below of the viewResolver from dispatch-servlet.xml

Thank you
<bean id="viewResolver"

		class="org.springframework.web.servlet.view.InternalResourceViewResolver">

		<property name="viewClass" value="org.springframework.web.servlet.view.JstlView"/>

		<property name="prefix" value="/WEB-INF/views/" />

		<property name="suffix" value=".jsp" />

</bean>

you would create another instance of that view resolver, but the problem will be that that resolver needs to be last so that is not possible in this case.

mm like objects mentioned... it might not be possibly directly.. however just on somewat of a side note i would suggest using a tilesView instead, then u wont have to worry about the folder issue.. u can have as many subfolders as u wish.
something like
//servlet-config.xml file would be something like this

   <bean id="viewResolver"

     class="org.springframework.web.servlet.view.InternalResourceViewResolver">

        <property name="requestContextAttribute" value="requestContext"/>

        <property name="viewClass" value="org.springframework.web.servlet.view.tiles.TilesView"/>

   </bean>
 

   <bean id="tilesConfigurer"  class="org.springframework.web.servlet.view.tiles.TilesConfigurer">

          <property name="factoryClass" value="org.apache.struts.tiles.xmlDefinition.I18nFactorySet"/>

          <property name="definitions">

            <list>

                <value>/WEB-INF/tiles-config.xml</value>

            </list>

          </property>

   </bean>
 
 

// your tiles-config.xml would be something like
 

<tiles-definitions>
 

<!-- for single page u would have something like -->

<definition name="loginPage" path="/WEB-INF/jsp/login.jsp"/>
 

<!-- for a proper tilesd def would be as follows -->

<definition name="Main" path="/WEB-INF/jsp/index.jsp">

    <put name="include-position" value="/WEB-INF/jsp/include/include.jsp"/>

    <put name="header-position" value="/WEB-INF/jsp/layouts/header.jsp"/>

    <put name="body-position" value="/WEB-INF/jsp/data.jsp"/> 

    <put name="nav-position" value="/WEB-INF/jsp/navcomponents/leftnavigation.jsp"/>

    <put name="footer-position" value="/WEB-INF/jsp/layouts/footer.jsp"/>

</definition>
 
 

</tiles-definitions>
 
 
 

//and then in your controller or wherever u can just 
 

 new ModelAndView("loginPage");
