I was browsing through the web and i came accross this:


You can also configure a java.util.Properties instance as:

The Spring container converts the text inside the <value/> element into a java.util.Properties instance by using the JavaBeans PropertyEditor mechanism. This is a nice shortcut, and is one of a few places where the Spring team do favor the use of the nested <value/> element over the value attribute style.

From what i understand, these are properties created without the use of properties file,
I tried to do the same:


and I tried to access in the following ways:
${myMappings.properties.myVariable}
Error: Could not resolve placeholder 'myMappings.properties.myVariable'

${myMappings.myVariable}
Error: Could not resolve placeholder 'myMappings.myVariable'

try just myVariable. Since that is the name of your property.

Could not resolve placeholder 'myVariable'
