Class LocationInteractionHandler

Transforms an HTTP redirect into a hypermedia document with a redirection link, such that scripts running in a browser can redirect the user to the next page.

This handler addresses the situation where:

  • the user visits a first page
  • this first page contains a script that performs interactions with a JSON API
  • as a result of a certain interaction, the user needs to be redirected to a second page

Regular HTTP redirects are performed via responses with 3xx status codes. However, since the consumer of the API in this case is a browser script, a 3xx response would only reach that script and not move the page for the user.

Therefore, this handler changes a 3xx response into a 200 response with an explicit link to the next page, enabling the script to move the user to the next page.
