Spring AOP XML Based Configuration

We’ll learn how to configure aspects, advice and pointcuts using the traditional XML way.

package com.dineshonjava.Spring.Aop;

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

import com.venkat.Spring.Aop.service.ShapeService;

public class AopTest {
public static void main(String args[])
ApplicationContext context=new ClassPathXmlApplicationContext("applicationContext.xml");
ShapeService service=context.getBean("shapeService",ShapeService.class);
package com.dineshonjava.Spring.Aop;

public @interface Loggable {

package com.dineshonjava.Spring.Aop;

import org.aspectj.lang.ProceedingJoinPoint;
import org.aspectj.lang.annotation.Aspect;

public class LoggingAspect {

// @Pointcut("execution(*  get*())")
// public void allGetters(){}
// @Around("@annotation(com.dineshonjava.Spring.Aop.Aspect.Loggable)")
public Object myAroundAdvice(ProceedingJoinPoint proceedingJoinPoint) 
Object returnValue=null;
try {
System.out.println("Before method Executed");
System.out.println("After Method Executed....");
} catch (Throwable e) {
System.out.println("Around Advice throws exception");
System.out.println("After Finally executed........");
return returnValue;
package com.dineshonjava.Spring.Aop;

 public class Circle {

private String name;

public String getName() {
return name;

public void setName(String name) {
this.name = name;
System.out.println("Setter method is called.....");
throw(new RuntimeException());
public String setNameAndReturning(String name) {
this.name = name;
System.out.println("Setter Method and return the value method executed....");
return name;
package com.dineshonjava.Spring.Aop;

 public class Triangle {

private String name;

public String getName() {
return name;

public void setName(String name) {
this.name = name;
package com.dineshonjava.Spring.Aop;

import com.dineshonjava.Spring.Aop.Aspect.Loggable;
import com.dineshonjava.Spring.Aop.model.Circle;
import com.dineshonjava.Spring.Aop.model.Triangle;

public class ShapeService {

private Triangle triangle;
private Circle circle;
public Triangle getTriangle() {
return triangle;
public void setTriangle(Triangle triangle) {
this.triangle = triangle;
public Circle getCircle() {
return circle;
public void setCircle(Circle circle) {
this.circle = circle;
