Create Java Project

  • Go to File -> New -> Other… -> Java Project
  • Create HelloWorld project
  • Right click on project -> Build Path -> Configure Build Path -> Libraries tab -> Add External JARs
    — commons-logging-X.X.jar
    — spring-beans-X.X.X.jar
    — spring-context-X.X.X.jar
    — spring-core-X.X.X.jar
  • * You can find dtd information from spring-beans-X.X.X.jar -> org -> springframework -> beans -> factory -> xml -> spring-beans.dtd (line no 36 & 37)

spring.xml

<!DOCTYPE beans PUBLIC "-//SPRING//DTD BEAN 2.0//EN"
"http://www.springframework.org/dtd/spring-beans-2.0.dtd">
<beans>
<bean id="t" class="com.codeFactory.beans.Test" />
</beans>

Test.java

package com.codeFactory.beans;/**
* @author code.factory
*
*/
public class Test {
public Test() {
System.out.println("Test.Test()");
}
public void hello() {
System.out.println("Hello World...");
}
}

Client.java

package com.codeFactory.test;import org.springframework.beans.factory.BeanFactory;
import org.springframework.beans.factory.xml.XmlBeanFactory;
import org.springframework.core.io.ClassPathResource;
import org.springframework.core.io.Resource;
import com.codeFactory.beans.Test;/**
* @author code.factory
*
*/
public class Client {
public static void main(String... args) {
/* find xml */
Resource r = new ClassPathResource("com/codeFactory/resources/spring.xml");

/* load xml into container */
BeanFactory factory = new XmlBeanFactory(r);

/* create test class object */
Object o1 = factory.getBean("t");
Object o2 = factory.getBean("t");
Object o3 = factory.getBean("t");

System.out.println(o1 == o2);
System.out.println(o1 == o3);

Test t = (Test) o1;
t.hello();
}
}

Hello World...
  • IOC container will create one singleton object. In above example you can see that instead of calling factory.getBean(“t”) multiple times still we have only single object.

Hello World...
  • In <bean></bean> if we don’t sprcify anything then scope is singleton. If we define scope=”prototype” then it will create new object on every request.
