13.2 Spring Boot Boot Error: Whitelabel Error Page
Problem description

Whitelabel Error Page
This application has no explicit mapping for /error, so you are seeing this as a fallback.
Tue Mar 28 22:25:43 CST 2017
There was an unexpected error (type=Internal Server Error, status=500).
Circular view path [login]: would dispatch back to the current handler URL [/login] again. Check your ViewResolver setup! (Hint: This may be the result of an unspecified view, due to default view name generation.)

Cause analysis,
First, the error page is the default error page for SpringBoot. Source in: org. Springframework. Boot. Autoconfigure. Web. Servlet. Error. ErrorMvcAutoConfiguration line 151.
This error is usually caused by a configuration error, or an MVC error.
The solution
Properly configure the named presuffix of the template file in the Application.properties file:

spring.mvc.view.prefix=/WEB-INF/jsp/
spring.mvc.view.suffix=.jsp

In addition, in earlier versions of Springboot, MVC was not included in the key.

spring.view.prefix: /WEB-INF/jsp/
spring.view.suffix: .jsp

This configuration is version 1.1 after class, in the org. Springframework. Boot. Autoconfigure. Web. Servlet. WebMvcProperties class. The above annotation @ConfigurationProperties(prefix = “spring.MVC “) indicates the key.
Accordingly, the template files should be placed in the correct directory. For the above configuration, the corresponding directory can be:

/src/main/webapp/WEB-INF/jsp/
/src/main/resources/META-INF/resources/WEB-INF/jsp

The default directory for common SpringBoot template files is as follows:

# THYMELEAF (ThymeleafAutoConfiguration)
spring.thymeleaf.cache=true # Enable template caching.
spring.thymeleaf.check-template=true # Check that the template exists before rendering it.
