Spring Boot @ConfigurationProperties example

Spring Boot @ConfigurationProperties is allows developer to map the entire property file into an object easily.

In normal spring framework, we use @Value annotation to inject property values one by one as shown below:

private int threadPool;

With the use of @ConfigurationProperties, it is going to be much easier. Here is a simple property file "":


@ConfigurationProperties annotation helps to load a family of related properties, say in this specific case namespaced by the prefix conveniently named "cmdb".

The approach Spring boot takes is to define a bean that can hold all the families of related properties this way:

package com.java2novice.springboot.util;

import java.util.List;

import org.springframework.context.annotation.Configuration;

public class CmdbProperties {

	private String resourceUrl;
	private List<Integer> resourcePort;

	public String toString() {

		return "resourceUrl: "+ this.resourceUrl+"\n"
				+ "resourcePort: "+this.resourcePort+"\n";

	public String getResourceUrl() {
		return resourceUrl;
	public void setResourceUrl(String resourceUrl) {
		this.resourceUrl = resourceUrl;
	public List<Integer> getResourcePort() {
		return resourcePort;
	public void setResourcePort(List<Integer> resourcePort) {
		this.resourcePort = resourcePort;

During runtime, all the properties will be injected to the related bean attributes.

Now lets print the properties after application load:

package com.java2novice.springboot;

import javax.annotation.PostConstruct;

import org.slf4j.Logger;
import org.slf4j.LoggerFactory;
import org.springframework.beans.factory.annotation.Autowired;
import org.springframework.boot.SpringApplication;
import org.springframework.boot.autoconfigure.SpringBootApplication;

import com.java2novice.springboot.util.CmdbProperties;

public class SpringBootWebApplication {

	private static Logger logger = LoggerFactory.getLogger(SpringBootWebApplication.class);

	private CmdbProperties cmdbProperties;

	public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {, args);

	public void init() {;

doPost Vs doGet methods
doGet() method is used to get information, while doPost() method is used for posting information. doGet() requests can't send large amount of information and is limited to 240-255 characters. However, doPost()requests passes all of its data, of unlimited length. A doGet() request is appended to the request URL in a query string and this allows the exchange is visible to the client, whereas a doPost() request passes directly over the socket connection as part of its HTTP request body and the exchange are invisible to the client.
