I've looked in the DXA documentation to find something equivalent to the "Product pre-requisites" that we're familiar with from the Tridion product itself. So far I haven't been able to find anything.

What versions of Spring MVC are supported by DXA 2.2.1, and where can I find this information?

  • Hi @Dominic, you can start dxa-2.2 with Spring-Boot latest version Jun 6 '20 at 17:13
  • The nuance in the question isn't just what version of Spring MVC is supported but where to find this information. I would expect answers to link to a prerequisites page such as this one (it's not mentioned). If it's intentionally absent, then some context on why Spring MVC isn't or shouldn't be mentioned in the documentation could be helpful.

  • Oh and if that's the page you were checking, @Dom, do consider leaving a comment or suggestion for our technical writers and team.

You can find the Spring MVC version in the (parent) POM of the DXA Web application.


Here is the link of the Github:https://github.com/sdl/dxa-web-application-java/tree/release/2.2/pom.xml

Yes, of course you may override this version (with any compatible version) in your application POM but I guess it won't be supported.

  • Thanks Shahid. I think the essense of my question was how can I find out what values I could put there that /would/ be supported.

  • @DominicCronin I realized that :-) Jun 8 '20 at 7:40
  • Interestingly, this file is not present in the release/2.2 branch. I’m not a Java expert, but that seems to be an issue to me. May make sense to report an issue on GitHub for this. Jun 8 '20 at 16:35
  • @RickPannekoek I did find it here: github.com/sdl/dxa-web-application-java/tree/release/2.2 I've updated the link in the above answer. Jun 8 '20 at 16:41
