Prototype Bean Scope with Annotation

Prototype Bean Scope: If scope is set to prototype, the Spring IoC container creates new bean instance of the object every time a request for that specific bean is made. As a rule, use the prototype scope for all state-full beans and the singleton scope for stateless beans.
Lets see with example which show the prototype scope of the 'zeroPoint' bean in the spring container.
Point.java
package com.dineshonjava.sdnext.beanscope.tutorial;

public class Point
{
 private int x;
 private int y;
 /**
  * @return the x
  */
 public int getX() {
  return x;
 }
 /**
  * @param x the x to set
  */
 public void setX(int x) {
  this.x = x;
 }
 /**
  * @return the y
  */
 public int getY() {
  return y;
 }
 /**
  * @param y the y to set
  */
 public void setY(int y) {
  this.y = y;
 }
}

Once you are done with creating source and bean configuration files, let us run the application. If everything is fine with your application, this will print the above message: See the both address value of the object is different.

Bean scopes using annotation:
spring.xml
<beans xmlns:aop="http://www.springframework.org/schema/aop" xmlns:context="http://www.springframework.org/schema/context" xmlns:p="http://www.springframework.org/schema/p" xmlns:security="http://www.springframework.org/schema/security" xmlns:tx="http://www.springframework.org/schema/tx" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xmlns="http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans" xsi:schemalocation="http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans">
<context:component-scan base-package="com.dineshonjava.sdnext.beanscope.tutorial">
</context:component-scan></beans>
Here component-scan element has attribute 'base-package'. base-package contain the base package of the Bean class.
base-package = "com.dineshonjava.sdnext.beanscope.tutorial"
Ponit.java
package com.dineshonjava.sdnext.beanscope.tutorial;

import org.springframework.context.annotation.Scope;
import org.springframework.stereotype.Service;

@Service
@Scope("prototype")
public class Point
{
 private int x;
 private int y;
 /**
  * @return the x
  */
 public int getX() {
  return x;
 }
 /**
  * @param x the x to set
  */
 public void setX(int x) {
  this.x = x;
 }
 /**
  * @return the y
  */
 public int getY() {
  return y;
 }
 /**
  * @param y the y to set
  */
 public void setY(int y) {
  this.y = y;
 }
}
Annotation @Service:
Target : Class
Description:
Here @Service is streotype annotation which declared above the class name that means this class is a bean of the spring container.
In Spring container this bean recognized by the id "point" means that same as the class name except first letter of the class name is the small letter.
for example: class 'Point' get as 'point' bean
                    class 'Circle' get as 'circle' bean
Annotation @Scope:
Target : Class
Description:
Here @Scope is annotation which declared above the class name that define the scope the bean
 @Scope("singleton")
 @Scope("prototype")
