obtener el contenido de JSP procesado en el controlador de resorte sin usar HttpClient?

So normally in a Spring controller you'd just return a ModelAndView object and forward the request to the JSP.

What I need to do is actually get the contents of that processed JSP so I can then send it in a JSONP response (ex: callback("processed HTML from JSP");)

Sé que podría usar HttpClient to get the contents but was wondering if there's a way to avoid that extra step by calling something like:

String contents = processJSP(modelAndView);

Updated for geek to show my final solution:

First you need a fake HttpResponse to hold the response:

public class SpringUtils {
    private static final Logger LOG = Logger.getLogger(SpringUtils.class);

    @Autowired private ViewResolver viewResolver;
    @Autowired private LocaleResolver localeResolver;

    public String renderView(HttpServletRequest request, ModelAndView mav) {
        try {
            View view = viewResolver.resolveViewName(mav.getViewName(), localeResolver.resolveLocale(request));
            HttpServletResponse localResponse = new MyHttpServletResponseWrapper(new DummyResponse());

            view.render(mav.getModel(), request, localResponse);

            return localResponse.toString();
        } catch (Exception e) {
            return "";

    public boolean doesViewExist(HttpServletRequest request, String viewName) {
        try {
            if (viewResolver.resolveViewName(viewName, localeResolver.resolveLocale(request)) != null) {
                return true;
        } catch (Exception e) {
            LOG.error(e.getMessage(), e);

        return false;

    static class MyHttpServletResponseWrapper extends HttpServletResponseWrapper {
        private StringWriter sw = new StringWriter();

        public MyHttpServletResponseWrapper(HttpServletResponse response) {

        public PrintWriter getWriter() throws IOException {
            return new PrintWriter(sw);

        public ServletOutputStream getOutputStream() throws IOException {
            throw new UnsupportedOperationException();

        public String toString() {
            return sw.toString();


public class DummyResponse implements HttpServletResponse {
    public DummyResponse() {

    public void setAppCommitted(boolean appCommitted) {}
    public boolean isAppCommitted() { return false; }

    public int getBufferSize() { return -1; }
    public String getCharacterEncoding() { return null; }
    public void setCharacterEncoding(String charEncoding) {}
    public ServletOutputStream getOutputStream() throws IOException {
        return null;
    public Locale getLocale() { return null; }

    public void reset() {}

    public Cookie[] getCookies() { return null; }

    public Collection<String> getHeaders(String arg0) { return null; }
    public Collection<String> getHeaderNames() { return null; };

Probably not possible easy way. Maybe injecting view resolver into controller and calling render with special response will help, but not sure :

ViewResolver viewResoler = // injected
View view = viewReslover.resolveViewName(String viewName, Locale locale);
HttpServletResponse xresponse = // custom response, buffers data
view.render(Map model, HttpServletRequest request, HttpServletResponse xresponse);
String content = // extract conten from data from xresponse
