Hi all,

I am new to Spring.

Can anyone of you please explain Interface Injection in Spring with a simple example?

Or is there any tutorial available for this?

I searched, but unable to find for interface injection in particular.

Have a great weekend !

Thanks

A simple example:


And now you just need a reference of the SomeRepository interface which will be injected (by type, since SomeRepositoryImpl implements SomeRepository) via setter method:

Spring doesn't support Interface injection and the above example about autowiring is incorrect.
Will reply more later.

Spring does not fully support Interface injection although the same can be achieved using "autowire=byType". But this has some serious drawbacks. See this discussion for a proposed implementation of Interace injection in Spring:
