Static variable set to null by @Value

Tags: ,



My Constants File:

 @Component
    public class Constants {
        public static String ROOT_DOMAIN;
        @Value("${setting.rootDomain}")
        private void setRootDomain(String rootDomain) {
            ROOT_DOMAIN = rootDomain;
        }
    ...
    }

My settings.properties:

setting.rootDomain=example.com

My Referring Class and Method:

@Component
public class MyServiceClass
{
        public void doSomething()
        {
           System.out.println("Root is:" + Constants.ROOT_DOMAIN);
        }
}

But Root Domain is coming as null

[update] My spring-master.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?>

        </property>

        <property name="ignoreUnresolvablePlaceholders" value="true"/>
        <property name="ignoreResourceNotFound" value="true" />
        <property name="searchSystemEnvironment" value="true" />
        <property name="systemPropertiesModeName" value="SYSTEM_PROPERTIES_MODE_OVERRIDE" />
    </bean>
    <context:component-scan base-package="com.myapp.app">
        <context:exclude-filter type="annotation" expression="org.springframework.stereotype.Controller" />
        <context:exclude-filter type="annotation" expression="org.springframework.stereotype.Repository"/>  
    </context:component-scan>
    <context:component-scan base-package="com.myapp.app.dao.api" />

    <!-- Application Context Provider -->
    <bean id="appContextProvider" class="com.myapp.app.ApplicationContextProvider"/>

</beans>

And the ApplicationContextProvider class is as follows:

@Component
public class ApplicationContextProvider implements ApplicationContextAware {

     private static ApplicationContext context;

     public static ApplicationContext getApplicationContext() {
         return context;
     }

     @Override
     public void setApplicationContext(ApplicationContext ctx) {
         context = ctx;
     }
}

So yes the files are in classpath

Answer

@Value() gets called on the initialization of the bean , the bean gets initialized on need not on the startup so you will not have the value unless the bean is initialized
