Please help me on this. I want to Autowire this current UserValidatior class to the class HomeController




HomeController.java


ServletCOntroller code



Please let me know how i can configure Autowiring using annotations. I am new and learning spring. If someone can provide me links for Autowiring, i would be able explore more.


I get below error on starting Tomcat.

org.springframework.beans.factory.BeanCreationException: Error creating bean with name 'homeController': Injection of autowired dependencies failed; nested exception is org.springframework.beans.factory.BeanCreationException: Could not autowire field: private validator.UserValidator controller.HomeController.val; nested exception is org.springframework.beans.factory.NoSuchBeanDefinitionException: No matching bean of type [validator.UserValidator] found for dependency: expected at least 1 bean which qualifies as autowire candidate for this dependency.

"No matching bean of type [validator.UserValidator] found for dependency:"

You didn't define the UserValidator as a bean. It has to be a bean in order to be autowired. and also (required=true) is the default, you don't need that. Just

@Autowired
private Something something;
