In your ContactController.java file, you have unnecessary curly braces:

@RequestMapping("/contact") { //<== this one is not needed 
  public String contact(ModelMap modelMap) {
    Contact contact = new Contact(12, "hello", "world", "helloworld12@gmail.com");
    modelMap.put("contact", contact);
    return "contact_detail";
  } 
  }//<== this one is not needed
