Spring Constructor Dependency Injection

Here I show you how spring container injects the value to the constructor parameter during run-time with reference from spring configuration file.

Constructor Dependency Injection

public class Rectangle {

private String type;

@Description("Spring container will inject the parameter value to this constructor"
+ "during runtime with reference from configuration file")

public Rectangle(String type) {
this.type = type;

public void draw() {

public String getType() {
return type;

//NOTE: There is no SETTER method for the variable 'type'

spring.xml configuration file

<!– Constructor Dependency Injection Demo –>

<bean id=”rectangle” class=”com.saravanansivaji.spring.Rectangle”>
<constructor-arg value=”Rectangle drawn!!”/>

SpringDI.java application class

public class SpringDI {

public static void main(String[] args) {

ApplicationContext context = new ClassPathXmlApplicationContext("spring.xml");

@Description("Constructor Dependency Injection Demo")

Rectangle rectangle = (Rectangle) context.getBean("rectangle");


Rectangle drawn!!
