  • @Controller is applied to point classes as Spring MVC Controller.
  • @RestController is a support annotation that does nothing more extra than combining the @Controller and @ResponseBody footnotes check: Javadoc

So the resulting two-controller definitions should do the likewise



public class MyController { }


public class MyRestController { }
