This is 14 of 16 parts of spring tutorial series:BeanPostProcessors in Spring

Tutorial Content: Spring tutorial for beginners

BeanPostProcessors interface provides methods that you can implement to have your own instantiation logic.Also you can write your own logic after spring IOC finishes instantiating, configuring, and initializing a bean by plugging in one or more BeanPostProcessor implementations.

You can configure multiple BeanPostProcessors and also can decide the order in which they will run relative to each other by setting order property but for that BeanPostProcessors  have to implement ordered interface.

Extension of BeanPostProcessor is BeanFactoryPostProcessor interface which allows direct modification of bean definitions before a bean is instantiated

An ApplicationContext will automatically register and process a bean that implements either of these interfaces, but a BeanFactory would have to have a BeanPostProcessor or BeanFactoryPostProcessor registered with it programatically.

BeanPostProcessors in Spring Example:

For configuring spring in your eclipse ide please refer  hello world example

 Here we are writing very simple logic but you can write quite complex logic  in above functions.You can note that you have object of bean class here so you can change it in whatever way you want and can return same or different object.


This class contains main function.Create under package org.arpit.javapostsforlearning.Copy following content into
Here you need to register a shutdown hook registerShutdownHook() method that is declared on the AbstractApplicationContext class. This will ensures a graceful shutdown and calls the relevant destroy methods.
