Spring Resource Loader with example

Spring Resource Loader is very generic and easy to load resources directly as file, url or classpath and of any file types like text, media or image. By using getResource() we can implement single generic method for any file type. By implementing ResourceLoaderAware interface we can inject ResourceLoader object into the bean, since ResourceLoader is non-accessable from application context.


<beans xmlns="http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans"

   <bean id="resource" class="com.app.javadiscover.ResourceBean" />


package com.app.javadiscover;

import org.springframework.context.ResourceLoaderAware;
import org.springframework.core.io.Resource;
import org.springframework.core.io.ResourceLoader;

public class ResourceBean implements ResourceLoaderAware {
 private ResourceLoader resourceLoader;
 public void setResourceLoader(ResourceLoader resourceLoader) {
  this.resourceLoader = resourceLoader;
 public Resource getResource(String location){
  return resourceLoader.getResource(location);


package com.app.javadiscover;

import java.io.BufferedReader;
import java.io.IOException;
import java.io.InputStream;
import java.io.InputStreamReader;

import org.springframework.context.ApplicationContext;
import org.springframework.context.support.ClassPathXmlApplicationContext;
import org.springframework.core.io.Resource;

public class LoadResource  {

 public static void main( String[] args )
     ApplicationContext appContext =  new ClassPathXmlApplicationContext("ResourceBeanConfig.xml");

     Resource resource = appContext.getResource("classpath:ResourceBeanConfig.xml");
        InputStream iStream = resource.getInputStream();
          BufferedReader bReader = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(iStream));
          String text;
          while ((text = bReader.readLine()) != null) {
     }catch(IOException e){


Spring Resource Loader with example

In above example we have used classpath to load xml file and to print line by line. Similar way we can use file and url resource loader as like below.

     Resource resource = appContext.getResource("file:C:\\javadiscover.xml");

     Resource resource = appContext.getResource("url:http://textfiles.com");

Sending email using embedded Image in Java

In our earlier tutorial we have how to send email using Java Code. As same way in this tutorial lets see how to send email using embedded image. By using javax.mail API we can achieve this by creating 2 MimeBodyPart instance for attaching image and to add HTML body text. In this below example lets see step by step to set SMTP server details and to message body with embedded image.

import java.io.IOException;
import java.util.Properties;
import javax.mail.Authenticator;
import javax.mail.Message;
import javax.mail.MessagingException;
import javax.mail.Multipart;
import javax.mail.PasswordAuthentication;
import javax.mail.Session;
import javax.mail.Transport;
import javax.mail.internet.InternetAddress;
import javax.mail.internet.MimeBodyPart;
import javax.mail.internet.MimeMessage;
import javax.mail.internet.MimeMultipart;

public class SendMail {

 public void emailWithEmbeddedImage() {

  try {

   final String from = "sender@gmail.com";
   final String password = "senderpassword";
   String toAddress = "to@gmail.com";
   String ccAddress ="cc@gmail.com";
   String bccAddress = "bcc@gmail.com";
   String name = "Job";
   // JavaMail session object
   Session session;

   // The JavaMail message object
   Message mesg;

   //SMTP server properties 
   Properties properties = new Properties();
   properties.put("mail.smtp.host", "smtp.gmail.com");
   properties.put("mail.smtp.port", 587);
   properties.put("mail.smtp.auth", "true");
   properties.put("mail.smtp.starttls.enable", "true");

   // authenticate sender username and password 
   Authenticator auth = new Authenticator() {
    public PasswordAuthentication getPasswordAuthentication() {
     return new PasswordAuthentication(from, password);

   // initialize session object
   session = Session.getInstance(properties, auth);

   // initialize message object
   mesg = new MimeMessage(session);

   // from Address
   mesg.setFrom(new InternetAddress(from));

   // Email Addresses
   InternetAddress toAdd = new InternetAddress(toAddress);
   InternetAddress ccAdd = new InternetAddress(ccAddress);
   InternetAddress bccAdd = new InternetAddress(bccAddress);

   mesg.addRecipient(Message.RecipientType.TO, toAdd);
   mesg.addRecipient(Message.RecipientType.CC, ccAdd);
   mesg.addRecipient(Message.RecipientType.BCC, bccAdd);

   // email Subject
   mesg.setSubject("Visitor Pass");

   // message body.
   Multipart mp = new MimeMultipart("related");

   String cid = "qr";

   MimeBodyPart pixPart = new MimeBodyPart();
   pixPart.setContentID("<" + cid + ">");

   MimeBodyPart textPart = new MimeBodyPart();
   textPart.setText("<html>" + "Hello " + name + ", <br> "
     + "Please find your visiting QR code <br> "
     + "<div><img src=\"cid:" + cid
     + "\" /></div></html>" + "Thanks & Regards, <br> "
     + "Bill</html>", "US-ASCII", "html");

   // Attach text and image to message body

   // Setting message content

   // Send mail

  } catch (MessagingException e) {
  } catch (IOException e) {
 public static void main(String[] args) {
  new SendMail().emailWithEmbeddedImage();

Generate QR Code using Java

QR code (Quick Response Code) is the trademark for a type of matrix bar-code, first designed for the automotive industry in Japan. A QR code consists of black modules (square dots) arranged in a square grid on a white background, which can be read by an imaging device (such as a camera, scanner, etc.) and processed using Reed–Solomon error correction until the image can be appropriately interpreted. The required data are then extracted from patterns that are present in both horizontal and vertical components of the image.
Now lets see simple Java Code to generate QR code by using qrgen API


import java.io.ByteArrayOutputStream;
import java.io.File;
import java.io.FileNotFoundException;
import java.io.FileOutputStream;
import java.io.IOException;

import net.glxn.qrgen.QRCode;
import net.glxn.qrgen.image.ImageType;

public class GenerateQRCode {

 public static void main(String[] args) {
  new GenerateQRCode().generateQRImage("sdfhjkjhrf23khsdfkh#@Wersdfcsdfsdf24r4sdf");

 public void generateQRImage(String qrCode){
  try {
   ByteArrayOutputStream out = QRCode.from(qrCode).withSize(250, 250).to(ImageType.PNG).stream();

   FileOutputStream fout = new FileOutputStream(new File("C://"+qrCode+".png"));
        } catch (FileNotFoundException e) {
        } catch (IOException e) {

Spring Boot + Restful Web Service + Spring Security

When we talk about Spring Boot (Simplifying Spring for Everyone) makes it easy to create stand-alone, production-grade Spring based Applications that you can "just run". Embed Tomcat, Jetty or Undertow directly (no need to deploy WAR files). Now lets see simple example with combination of Spring Boot and Spring Restful Web Service which includes spring security for all our services or API's.
