What Is the Use of @Autowired Annotation?



In this quick article, we will discuss one important Spring interview question that is what Is the use of @Autowired annotation?

What Is the Use of @Autowired Annotation?

We can use the @Autowired to mark a dependency which Spring is going to resolve and inject. We can use this annotation with a constructorsetter, or field injection.

Constructor Injection:
@RestController
public class CustomerController {
    private CustomerService customerService;
 
    @Autowired
    public CustomerController(CustomerService customerService) {
        this.customerService = customerService;
    }
}
Setter Injection:
import org.springframework.beans.factory.annotation.Autowired;
import org.springframework.web.bind.annotation.RestController;

@RestController
public class CustomerController {
    private CustomerService customerService;
 
    @Autowired
    public void setCustomerService(CustomerService customerService) {
        this.customerService = customerService;
    }
}
Field Injection:
import org.springframework.beans.factory.annotation.Autowired;
import org.springframework.web.bind.annotation.RestController;

@RestController
public class CustomerController {
    @Autowired
    private CustomerService customerService;
}
