Elements of Spring Web Flow Applications

A typical application flow consists of these items:

  • One or more states
  • State transitions
  • Actions that update data and initiate state changes
  • Events that occur as states change
  • View displays

Authoring states is achieved using a special-purpose flow definition language that includes some of the following elements:

  • View state
  • Transition
  • End state
  • View navigation logic
  • Actions

We'll see all of these elements in action later in the example code. For an overview, the elements are reasonably self-explanatory. If you want to learn more, have a look at the excellent documentation included with the Spring web flow distribution. Meanwhile, let's get started by building the distribution.
