Renders a view using the Freemarker template engine.

The FreemarkarManager class configures the template loaders so that the template location can be either

  • relative to the web root folder. eg /WEB-INF/views/home.ftl
  • a classpath resuorce. eg /com/company/web/views/home.ftl

Also see Freemarker Support.


  • location (default) - the location of the template to process.
  • parse - true by default. If set to false, the location param will not be parsed for Ognl expressions.
  • contentType - defaults to "text/html" unless specified.
  • writeIfCompleted - false by default, write to stream only if there isn't any error processing the template. Setting template_exception_handler=rethrow in freemarker.properties will have the same effect.
