Class ClassPathScanningCandidateComponentProvider

All Implemented Interfaces:
Aware, ResourceLoaderAware, EnvironmentCapable
Direct Known Subclasses:

public class ClassPathScanningCandidateComponentProvider extends Object implements EnvironmentCapable, ResourceLoaderAware
A component provider that scans for candidate components starting from a specified base package. Can use the component index, if it is available, and scans the classpath otherwise.

Candidate components are identified by applying exclude and include filters. AnnotationTypeFilter and AssignableTypeFilter include filters for an annotation/target-type that is annotated with Indexed are supported: if any other include filter is specified, the index is ignored and classpath scanning is used instead.

This implementation is based on Spring's MetadataReader facility, backed by an ASM ClassReader.

  • Field Details


      public static final String IGNORE_CLASSFORMAT_PROPERTY_NAME
      System property that instructs Spring to ignore class format exceptions during classpath scanning, in particular for unsupported class file versions. By default, such a class format mismatch leads to a classpath scanning failure.

    • ClassPathScanningCandidateComponentProvider

      protected ClassPathScanningCandidateComponentProvider()
      Protected constructor for flexible subclass initialization.
    • ClassPathScanningCandidateComponentProvider

      public ClassPathScanningCandidateComponentProvider(boolean useDefaultFilters)
      Create a ClassPathScanningCandidateComponentProvider with a StandardEnvironment.
      useDefaultFilters - whether to register the default filters for the @Component, @Repository, @Service, and @Controller stereotype annotations
      See Also:
    • ClassPathScanningCandidateComponentProvider

      public ClassPathScanningCandidateComponentProvider(boolean useDefaultFilters, Environment environment)
      Create a ClassPathScanningCandidateComponentProvider with the given Environment.
      useDefaultFilters - whether to register the default filters for the @Component, @Repository, @Service, and @Controller stereotype annotations
      environment - the Environment to use

  • Method Details

    • setResourcePattern

      public void setResourcePattern(String resourcePattern)
      Set the resource pattern to use when scanning the classpath. This value will be appended to each base package name.
      See Also:
    • addIncludeFilter

      public void addIncludeFilter(TypeFilter includeFilter)
      Add an include type filter to the end of the inclusion list.
    • addExcludeFilter

      public void addExcludeFilter(TypeFilter excludeFilter)
      Add an exclude type filter to the front of the exclusion list.
    • resetFilters

      public void resetFilters(boolean useDefaultFilters)
      Reset the configured type filters.
      useDefaultFilters - whether to re-register the default filters for the @Component, @Repository, @Service, and @Controller stereotype annotations
      See Also:
    • registerDefaultFilters

      protected void registerDefaultFilters()
      Register the default filter for @Component.

      This will implicitly register all annotations that have the @Component meta-annotation including the @Repository, @Service, and @Controller stereotype annotations.

      Also supports Jakarta EE's ManagedBean and JSR-330's Named annotations (as well as their pre-Jakarta javax.annotation.ManagedBean and javax.inject.Named equivalents), if available.

    • setEnvironment

      public void setEnvironment(Environment environment)
      Set the Environment to use when resolving placeholders and evaluating @Conditional-annotated component classes.

      The default is a StandardEnvironment.

      environment - the Environment to use
    • getEnvironment

      public final Environment getEnvironment()
      Description copied from interface: EnvironmentCapable
      Return the Environment associated with this component.
      Specified by:
      getEnvironment in interface EnvironmentCapable
    • getRegistry

      @Nullable protected BeanDefinitionRegistry getRegistry()
      Return the BeanDefinitionRegistry used by this scanner, if any.
    • setResourceLoader

      public void setResourceLoader(@Nullable ResourceLoader resourceLoader)
      Set the ResourceLoader to use for resource locations. This will typically be a ResourcePatternResolver implementation.

      Default is a PathMatchingResourcePatternResolver, also capable of resource pattern resolving through the ResourcePatternResolver interface.

      Specified by:
      setResourceLoader in interface ResourceLoaderAware
      resourceLoader - the ResourceLoader object to be used by this object
      See Also:
    • getResourceLoader

      public final ResourceLoader getResourceLoader()
      Return the ResourceLoader that this component provider uses.
    • setMetadataReaderFactory

      public void setMetadataReaderFactory(MetadataReaderFactory metadataReaderFactory)
      Set the MetadataReaderFactory to use.

      Default is a CachingMetadataReaderFactory for the specified resource loader.

      Call this setter method after setResourceLoader( in order for the given MetadataReaderFactory to override the default factory.

    • getMetadataReaderFactory

      public final MetadataReaderFactory getMetadataReaderFactory()
      Return the MetadataReaderFactory used by this component provider.
    • findCandidateComponents

      public Set<BeanDefinition> findCandidateComponents(String basePackage)
      Scan the component index or class path for candidate components.
      basePackage - the package to check for annotated classes
      a corresponding Set of autodetected bean definitions
    • resolveBasePackage

      protected String resolveBasePackage(String basePackage)
      Resolve the specified base package into a pattern specification for the package search path.

      The default implementation resolves placeholders against system properties, and converts a "."-based package path to a "/"-based resource path.

      basePackage - the base package as specified by the user
      the pattern specification to be used for package searching
    • isCandidateComponent

      protected boolean isCandidateComponent(MetadataReader metadataReader) throws IOException
      Determine whether the given class does not match any exclude filter and does match at least one include filter.
      metadataReader - the ASM ClassReader for the class
      whether the class qualifies as a candidate component
    • isCandidateComponent

      protected boolean isCandidateComponent(AnnotatedBeanDefinition beanDefinition)
      Determine whether the given bean definition qualifies as candidate.

      The default implementation checks whether the class is not an interface and not dependent on an enclosing class.

      Can be overridden in subclasses.

      beanDefinition - the bean definition to check
      whether the bean definition qualifies as a candidate component
    • clearCache

      public void clearCache()
      Clear the local metadata cache, if any, removing all cached class metadata.
