Spring MVC Controller redirect using URL parameters instead of in response

I had the same problem. solved it like this:

return new ModelAndView("redirect:/user/list?success=true");

And then my controller method look like this:

public ModelMap list(@RequestParam(required=false) boolean success) {
    ModelMap mm = new ModelMap();
    mm.put(SEARCH_MODEL_KEY, campaignService.listAllCampaigns());
        mm.put("successMessageKey", "campaign.form.msg.success");
    return mm;

Works perfectly unless you want to send simple data, not collections let’s say. Then you’d have to use session I guess.
