Spring MVC With AngularJs – Reloading the browser returns Resource Not Found

Issue

The main problem was in my SpringMVC App, I have index.jsp to load. In angularJs I used $locationProvider from ngRoute i suppose (sorry I am new in Angular). Lets say I have a navigation bar namely nav1, nav2, nav2. When I clicked nav1 the url was index.ipxs/nav1 in which the partial template is rendered normally in my ng-view div. But when i MANUALLY RELOAD THE BROWSER it says ‘Request/Resource not found’. What I want to achieved is to redirect to home page (index.ipxs/nav1) as a default whenever i reload the browser even I am currently in a index.ipxs/nav2 page OR to render the page wherever I am into and retain the state of the page…

Here’s my code

**index.jsp**

**app.js**

var iPlexusApp = angular
        .module('iPlexusApp', [ 'ngRoute' ])
        .config(
                [
                        '$routeProvider',
                        '$locationProvider',
                        function($routeProvider, $locationProvider) {
                            $routeProvider
                                    .when(
                                            '/iPlexus/index.ipxs/marketplace',
                                            {
                                                templateUrl : '/iPlexus/resources/partials/marketplace.jsp'
                                            });
                            $routeProvider
                                    .when(
                                            '/iPlexus/index.ipxs/directory',
                                            {
                                                templateUrl : '/iPlexus/resources/partials/directory.jsp'
                                            });
                            $routeProvider
                                    .when(
                                            '/iPlexus/index.ipxs/faq',
                                            {
                                                templateUrl : '/iPlexus/resources/partials/faq.jsp'
                                            });
                            $routeProvider.otherwise({
                                redirectTo : '/iPlexus/index.ipxs/marketplace'
                            });
                            $locationProvider.html5Mode({
                                enabled : true,
                                requireBase : false
                            });
                        } ]);

Solution

Thanks but I found some workaround, I used this url rewriting in order to rewirte any redirection directly in the server side…hope this helps to anyone with the same problem.
