Spring Boot @ConfigurationProperties Property Validation

In the previous page, we have seen @ConfigurationProperties example. The @ConfigurationProperties support JSR-303 bean validation – javax.validation

Here is a simple property file "":


Now lets introduce some validations to our instance members:

package com.java2novice.springboot.util;

import java.util.List;

import javax.validation.constraints.Max;
import javax.validation.constraints.Min;

import org.hibernate.validator.constraints.NotEmpty;
import org.springframework.context.annotation.Configuration;

public class CmdbProperties {

	private String resourceUrl;

	private List<Integer> resourcePort;

	private Integer resourceCount;

	public String toString() {

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

	public Integer getResourceCount() {
		return resourceCount;

	public void setResourceCount(Integer resourceCount) {
		this.resourceCount = resourceCount;

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

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() {;

Console Output



Binding to target resourceUrl:
resourcePort: [80, 443]
resourceCount: 10

    Property: cmdb.resourceCount
    Value: 10
    Reason: must be less than or equal to 5

ServletOuptputStream Vs PrintWriter
ServletOutputStream: ServletResponse.getOutputStream() returns a ServletOutputStream suitable for writing binary data in the response. The servlet container does not encode the binary data, it sends the raw data as it is.

PrintWriter: ServletResponse.getWriter() returns PrintWriter object which sends character text to the client. The PrintWriter uses the character encoding returned by getCharacterEncoding(). If the response's character encoding has not been specified then it does default character encoding.
