Spring AOP After-Returning Advice Example using XML Config

In this spring aop after-returning advice example with XML configuration, we learn how to use Spring AOP after-returning advice using <aop:after-returning/> XML configuration. In Spring AOP, After-returning Advice to be executed if a join point exits normally without any error/exceptional i.e  Any methods configured as After-returning advice always run immediately after the target methods return executed normally.

Spring AOP After-returning Advice Example using XML Config from GitHub.

Let's create a simple spring application and add logging aspect to be invoked on based on pointcuts information passed in <aop:after-returning/> xml configuration. This example is also available with Java configuration Spring AOP AspectJ @AfterReturning Annotation Advice Example.

Configuring Spring AOP After-returning Advice using aop namespace <aop:after-returning/>
In this example, we are using <aop:*/> namespace for XML configuration. So here we add <aop:after-returning/> aop namespace in our XML configuration file in this example. Let's see our aop configuration for after advice in this example.


<aop:config>
  <aop:aspect ref="loggingAspect">
    <!-- all public methods with any arguments of any type and any return type of all classes in the com.doj.aopapp.service package -->
    <aop:pointcut expression="execution(* com.doj.aopapp.service.*.*(..))" id="logForAllMethods"/>
    <!-- all public methods whose name are transfer() with taking three arguments of any type and any return type of all classes in the com.doj.aopapp.service package -->
    <aop:pointcut expression="execution(* com.doj.aopapp.service.*.transfer(*,*,*))" id="logForAllTransfer"/>
    <aop:after-returning method="afterReturningAdviceForAllMethods" pointcut-ref="logForAllMethods"/>
    <aop:after-returning method="afterReturningAdviceForTransferMethods" pointcut-ref="logForAllTransfer"/>
   </aop:aspect>
</aop:config>

Declaring Pointcut expressions
#1. In First pointcut expression, we have declared after-returning advice, it is valid for all public methods with any number of arguments of any type and any return type, for all classes in the com.doj.aopapp.service package.

<aop:pointcut expression="execution(* com.doj.aopapp.service.*.*(..))" id="logForAllMethods"/>

#2. In Second pointcut expression, we have declared after-returning advice, it is valid for all public methods whose name is transfer() with taking three arguments of any type and any return type, for all classes in the com.doj.aopapp.service package.

<aop:pointcut expression="execution(* com.doj.aopapp.service.*.transfer(*,*,*))" id="logForAllTransfer"/>

Let's create an example for a after-returning advice, using xml configuration using <aop:after-returning/> namespace.

Test Class for Spring AOP After-returning Advice Configuration and Execution
Let's execute following test class and analyse the output on the console.

/**
 * 
 */
package com.doj.aopapp.test;

import org.springframework.context.ConfigurableApplicationContext;
import org.springframework.context.support.ClassPathXmlApplicationContext;

import com.doj.aopapp.service.TransferService;

/**
 * @author Dinesh.Rajput
 *
 */
public class Main {

 /**
  * @param args
  */
 public static void main(String[] args) {
  ConfigurableApplicationContext applicationContext = new ClassPathXmlApplicationContext("applicationContext.xml");
  TransferService transferService = applicationContext.getBean(TransferService.class);
  transferService.transfer("accountA", "accountB", 50000l);
  transferService.checkBalance("accountA");
  transferService.diposite("accountA",  50000l);
  transferService.withdrawal("accountB", 40000l);
  applicationContext.close();
 }

}
