Spring util:properties Example

By Arvind Rai, November 07, 2021
On this page we will learn using Spring util:properties element. The <util:properties> element is used to load java.util.Properties file. The <util:properties> is the concise form of PropertiesFactoryBean bean.
Find the code for PropertiesFactoryBean bean.
<bean id="entProp" class="org.springframework.beans.factory.config.PropertiesFactoryBean">
    <property name="location" value="classpath:/entitlement.cfg"/>
</bean> 
Find the concise representation of above code using <util:properties> element.
<util:properties id="entProp" location="classpath:/entitlement.cfg"/> 




Using <util:properties>

} 
Entitlement.java
package com.concretepage;
public class Entitlement {
	private String name;
	private int time;
	public String getName() {
		return name;

	public void setName(String name) {
		this.name = name;
	}
	public int getTime() {
		return time;
	}
	public void setTime(int time) {

	}
} 
Subscription.java
package com.concretepage;
public class Subscription {

	public String getType() {
		return type;
	}
	public void setType(String type) {
		this.type = type;
	}	
} 
AppTest.java
package com.concretepage;
import java.sql.SQLException;
import org.springframework.context.annotation.AnnotationConfigApplicationContext;

	public static void main(String[] args) throws SQLException {
		AnnotationConfigApplicationContext ctx = new AnnotationConfigApplicationContext();
 
		ctx.register(AppConfig.class);
		ctx.refresh();

		Entitlement ent= (Entitlement)ctx.getBean("entitlement");
	    System.out.println(ent.getName());		
	    System.out.println(ent.getTime());
		
		Subscription sub= (Subscription)ctx.getBean("subscription");
	    System.out.println(sub.getName());		
	    System.out.println(sub.getType());
	}
} 
entitlement.cfg
entitlement.name= Entitlement
entitlement.time= 10 
subscription.cfg
subscription.name=Ram
subscription.type= Monthly 
Output
Entitlement
10
Ram
Monthly
