BeanNameAware and BeanFactoryAware

By Shambhu Kumar  |  10:57 No comments

BeanNameAware and BeanFactoryAware

The first one makes the object aware of their bean name in a bean factory.
The second interface gives the bean access to the Bean Factory that created it.

  1. The xxxAware interface is a common pattern used within the Spring framework. They are typically used to allow a Spring managed bean to be given an object (via the interfaces setXxx method) at Spring bootstrap time.
  2. Springs documentation says this about the Aware interface, which is a super interface to the two you mention:
  3. Marker superinterface indicating that a bean is eligible to be notified by the Spring container of a particular framework object through a callback-style method.

public class HelloWorld  implements BeanNameAware, BeanFactoryAware{
       private String msg;

       public String getMsg() {
              return msg;

       public void setMsg(String msg) {
              this.msg = msg;


       public void setBeanFactory(BeanFactory beanFactory) throws BeansException {
               System.out.println("received the beanFactory " + beanFactory);

       public void setBeanName(String name) {
               System.out.println("the name of the bean is " + name);


Bean definition

<bean id="messanger" class="com.shambhu.bean.HelloWorld">
      <property name="msg" value="Hello World" />



public class HelloMain {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
ApplicationContext beanFactory = new ClassPathXmlApplicationContext(
        HelloWorld messanger = (HelloWorld) beanFactory.getBean("messanger");
