Sample application for spring with loggingFeatured


many people asked me to help them with a sample of spring to know the basic as well as about logging using log4j


So i have made an application that allows you to get a gist of how both of them work.
Before seeing the code go through the following data:
*********************************************************************
Layout pattern :

%d -> date
%p -> priority
%F -> filename
%t -> thread
%c -> class
%L -> line no
%M -> method
%m -> message
%n -> newline character

*********************************************************************

Steps:
1. create a package my.spring and copy the java files into it
2. paste the applicationContext.xml and the log4j.properties into the source folder but outside the package.
3. Add the requisite jar files as mentioned in the next section.

********************************************************************

Required jar files:
common-logging.jar
log4j-1.2.11.jar
spring-aop.jar
spring-beans.jar
spring-context-support.jar
spring-context.jar
spring-core.jar
spring-jdbc.jar//optional
spring-jms.jarspring-orm.jar//optional
spring-test.jar
spring-tx.jar//optional
spring-web.jar//optional
spring-webmvc-portlet.jar//optional
spring-webmvc-struts.jar//optional
spring-webmvc.jar//optional
spring.jar


The optional jars are to be used in case when the database and web service coding needs to be done
*********************************************************************




//person.java

package my.spring;

import org.apache.log4j.BasicConfigurator;
import org.apache.log4j.Logger;

public class Person 
{
static Logger l=Logger.getLogger("my.spring.Person");// creating the logger instance for the the respective class.
String name, address;
// constructor for the sake of constructor injection against setter injection...
public Person()
{
}
public Person(String name, String address)
{
BasicConfigurator.configure();// for writing the logger values to the console.
l.info("Using constructor injection.");//adding the statements to be printed.
this.name=name;
this.address=address;
}
/*Getter and Setter function definition for all the data members of the class.*/

{

{

}

//Trainee.java

}

public String getPost()
{

}

public void setPost(String post) 
{

}
public String toString()//overriding of the function to print requisite values..
{
BasicConfigurator.configure();// for writing the logger values to the console.
l.info("Using the overridden toString method.");//adding the statements to be printed.
return "Employee id : "+getEid()+", Employee name :"+getPerson().getName()+", Employee Address : "+getPerson().getAddress()+", Post : "+getPost();
}

}

//TestMe.java
