Project Structure:

Spring Boot standalone project structure


Step 1:  Create a simple java  project using maven in eclipse named "SpringBootHelloWorldStandaloneExample".
Step 2: Change "pom.xml" as below:

Step 3: Create a file named "Country.java" in package .org.arpit.java2blog.springboot

If you notice, we are using @Value("{countryName}") for countryName attribute.Actually, this syntax is used to read a String from the property file. In the next step, we will put "countryName=India" in application.properties. We have declared this bean with @Component annotation, so spring boot will automatically find this bean using component scan.
Step 4: Create a file named "application.properties" in package src/main/resources

Step 5: Create a file named "SpringBootHelloWorldStandaloneApplication.java" in package .org.arpit.java2blog

You can read more about @Autowire and @Qualifier.

The SpringBootHelloWorldStandaloneApplication’s main method uses Spring Boot’s pringApplication.run() method to launch a spring application.If you notice, we did not do any single line of xml configuration here.

We have implemented CommandLineRunner interface here. This interface indicates that bean should run if it is contained in spring application.
When you run above application, you will get below output.
