Types of Spring Bean Scopes Example

In this tutorials, I am going to show you different types of Spring Bean Scopes with simple examples.

Spring Bean Scopes :

In spring we have 5 different types of bean scopes. We can define the bean scope in spring configuration file using scope attribute in <bean> tag or we can also use the @scope annotation on top of the class.

Types of Spring Bean Scopes :

1) singleton: It returns a single bean instance per Spring IoC container.

2) prototype: It returns a new bean instance for each time when requested to create a bean.

3) request: It returns a single instance for every HTTP request.

4) session: It returns a single instance for entire HTTP session.

5) global session: global session scope is equal as session scope on portlet-based web applications.

Spring Bean Scopes using xml:

<beans xmlns="" =
    <bean id="company" scope="singleton"
        <bean id="employee" scope="prototype"
            <bean id="student" scope="request"
                <bean id="customer" scope="session"
                    <bean id="item" scope="globalsession"

On the above configuration we can see all types spring bean scopes and declarations.

Note : If we don’t mention any scope explicitly, the default scope for a bean is singleton. It is a commonly asked spring interview question.

Spring Bean Scope using annotation :

We can define a bean scope in spring using @scope annotation.

public class Customer {

    private int id;

    public Customer() {
        System.out.println(" id is:" + id);

    public String getId() {
        return id;

We can define all types of bean scopes by passing the parameter to @scope annotation.
