Hi,

When we create a Spring project, the xml file which contains the beans configuration is placed in src folder saying that src is the classpath. How come src is the classpath?

What is difference between build path and class path?

Thanks

What do you mean with "saying that src is the classpath", and how is this specified in the XML file?

The source folder of your project should not be in the classpath. The classpath is the set of directories and JAR files that Java searches in to find *.class files (compiled classes), not source files (*.java) - therefore the src directory does not belong in the classpath.
