Spring XML document

When defining a bean in Spring, what is the best way or documentation to get all the xml elements needed for the bean definition?

For example, the spring documentation defines a bean this way.

<bean id="viewResolver"
      class="org.springframework.web.servlet.view.UrlBasedViewResolver">
    <property name="viewClass" value="org.springframework.web.servlet.view.JstlView"/>
    <property name="prefix" value="/WEB-INF/jsp/"/>
    <property name="suffix" value=".jsp"/>
</bean>

But, Netbeans IDE does it another way:

<bean id="viewResolver"
          class="org.springframework.web.servlet.view.InternalResourceViewResolver"                  
          p:prefix="/WEB-INF/jsp/"
          p:suffix=".jsp"
     />

I need to translate the first snippet into the second snippet.  That is, documentation -> Netbeans way.

What is the best way to figure out how to do that?

Are you referring specifically to the difference between...

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

and

p:prefix="/WEB-INF/jsp/"

??



Basically, either version is acceptable (in Netbeans or any other development environment) as they are just two different alternatives to do the same thing. The only requirement is that for the second version, the "p:" namespace prefix needs to be declared in your top level "beans" xml element.

So yeah, you can choose whichever way you are happier with.


Note, I do realise that there are other differences in the two xml snippets above (the bean's class and the viewClass property). If that is what you are referring to, then there really isn't a path to translate the first into the second, they are two different (albeit very similar) things.

If I have missed the point somewhere, can you please elaborate!
