Spring Core – Hello World Example

Pre Requisite :

Download and install the Spring STS into your machine. This will provide all the default spring configurations whenever you create the project

Application Creation Steps:

Step 1: Spring Maven project in your STS. This gives the project folder structure and one pom.xml file in root folder. Below is the Sample pom Xml.

<project xmlns=”http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0&#8243; xmlns:xsi=”http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance&#8221; xsi:schemaLocation=”http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0 http://maven.apache.org/xsd/maven-4.0.0.xsd”&gt;


<!– Generic properties –>

<!– Spring –>

<!– Hibernate / JPA –>

<!– Logging –>

<!– Test –>


<!– Spring and Transactions –>

<!– Logging with SLF4J & LogBack –>

<!– Hibernate –>
<!– Test Artifacts –>


Step 2: Create the bean class HelloWorldBean.java as below

package in.malliktalksjava.spring.examples;

public class HelloWorldBean {

private String message;

public void setMessage(String message){
this.message = message;

public void printMessage(){
System.out.println(“You are in Print Message : “+message);

Step 3: Create Beans Xml file and configure the HellowWorldBean into that file to make use of dependency injection.

<?xml version=”1.0″ encoding=”UTF-8″?>
<beans xmlns=”http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans&#8221;
xsi:schemaLocation=”http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans/spring-beans-3.2.xsd”&gt;
<bean id=”helloWorldBean” class=”in.malliktalksjava.spring.examples.HelloWorldBean”>
<property name=”message” value=”Hello World”></property>


Step 4: Create the Main Application class SpringCoreBeansXmlExample.java and load the beans xml

package in.malliktalksjava.spring.examples;

import org.springframework.context.ApplicationContext;
import org.springframework.context.support.ClassPathXmlApplicationContext;

* @author mallikarjungunda
public class SpringCoreBeansXmlExample {

* @param args
public static void main(String[] args) {

//Load the beans.xml into Application Context
ApplicationContext context = new ClassPathXmlApplicationContext(“beans.xml”);

//Inject the object whenever required
HelloWorldBean helloWorldBean = (HelloWorldBean)context.getBean(“helloWorldBean”);


Below is the out put that prints whenever you run the class.

You are in Print Message : Hello World
