Spring MVC form tags

Spring MVC provided special tag library to provide the support for forms. We need to reference the namespace at the top of the JSP file to make use of the Spring MVC form tags

<%@taglib prefix="form" uri="http://www.springframework.org/tags/form"%>

Using the above tag library we can generate the HTML form and it will automatically bind the values to the java object

Form tag Description
<form:form> Main form container
<form:text> textbox
<form:input> input type
<form:textarea> text area
<form:checkbox> checkbox
<form:radio> radio buttons
<form:select> dropdown list
