How to Get All Spring Beans Details Loaded in ICO

By | 2018-08-13T21:41:25+00:00 August 14th, 2018|Spring Boot|0 Comments

In this tutorial, I am going to show how to get all the spring beans details which are loaded into the IOC container.

Get All Spring Beans Details:

As we know that, all the beans are loaded while loading the application and will be residing in the IOC container. The ICO container is responsible for managing the life cycle of these beans.

We can get these list of bean in three different ways:

  • Using ApplicationContext  interface
  • And using Spring Boot Actuator.

Using ApplicationContext:

ApringBootApplication.java
package com.onlinetutorialspoint;

import org.springframework.beans.factory.annotation.Autowired;
import org.springframework.boot.CommandLineRunner;
import org.springframework.boot.SpringApplication;
import org.springframework.boot.autoconfigure.SpringBootApplication;
import org.springframework.context.ApplicationContext;

@SpringBootApplication
public class SpringBootApplication implements CommandLineRunner {

    @Autowired
    ApplicationContext context;

  public static void main(String[] args) {
    SpringApplication.run(SpringBootApplication.class, args);
  }

  @Override
  public void run(String...args) throws Exception{
        String[] beans = context.getBeanDefinitionNames();
        for (String bean: beans) {
            System.out.println(bean);
        }
    }
}

It will display the below output

Console

Using Spring Boot Actuator:

We can get the spring managed beans information loaded in ICO container using Spring Boot’s Actuator. You can see my complete Spring Boot Actuator tutorials in my previous article.

Add the below Actuator dependency in pom.xml

pom.xml
<dependency>
  <groupId>org.springframework.boot</groupId>
        <artifactId>spring-boot-starter-actuator</artifactId>
</dependency>

Access the below actuator beans endpoint.

http://localhost:9001/actuator/beans
