Example On Spring AOP Before Advice, After Advice

Spring » On Jul 25, 2012 By Sivateja

Hi friends…, will see one example on spring Before Advice, and After Advice.

Files Required

  • spconfig.xml

Directory Structure




Actually in spring frame work, while creating a spring bean we need to follow POJI-POJO model.  It means a spring bean is a combination of an interface and implementation class. In AOP always we need to create a spring bean in the form of interface and implementation class only, because the IOC container internally creates proxy class by implementing that interface with the help of ProxyFactoryBean.

In spring configuration file, we need to configure a predefined bean class called ProxyFactoryBean, this class is used to configure our bean class and its required advices as a group.

In the client application, we are passing id of ProxyFactoryBean (id4) to get the object, because we need proxyed object, but not target one hope you understand.  In client application we cannot typecast the object into our bean class type, because internally the object is created for proxy class but not for our bean class right :-)  so we need to typecast into interface type because the proxy class will also implements the same interface internally remember…!!

In if we typecast into our class type, then it will generates ClassCastException exception.

Hope you are clear, if not refer previous concepts of AOP.

    Thanks for this post. But i have confusion in,line no.15, it should be MyImplClass inter =(MyImplClass)factory.getBean(“id4″); rather we have used MyInterFace inter(MyInterFace)factory.getBean(“id4″); because MyInterFace is an interface and we can;t instansiate interface. Hope you got my problem.please help

  2. Java4s says:


    We are not creating any object to that interface, we just taking object into interface reference, like how we are using List and ArrayList :-)

    Hope you are clear.
