Bean Wrapper

Bean Wrapper

In this tutorial, we are going to discuss bean wrapper in the spring framework. Bean Wrapper provides methods to explicitly create Bean objects to analyze and manipulate standard JavaBeans, like getting and setting property values, getting property descriptors and checking the readability/ writability of properties. BeanWrapper also supports the setting of index properties. Spring Framework has provided a separate predefined implementation class for BeanWrapper in the form of “BeanWrapperImpl.”

Bean Wrapper

To set values to the Bean object through the Bean Wrapper class, we have to use the following method from BeanWrapper class.

public void setPropertyValue(String prop_Name, Object value)


If we want to set all the properties at a time to Bean object, first, we have to set property names and their values in the form of Map object, then set that Map object to BeanWrapper object, for this, we have to use the following method.

public void setPropertyValues(Map map)

To get property value explicitly from the Bean object, we have to use the following method from BeanWrapper class.

public Object getProperty(String name)

To get Bean object explicitly through BeanWrapper, we have to use the following method from BeanWrapper.

public Object getWrappedInstance()

To copy the properties values from one Bean object to another, we have to use the following method from the “org.springframework.beans. BeanUtils” class.

public void copyProperties(Object source, Object target)

Where Source and target objects may be the same class or different classes having the same property names and property data types, to Check whether the property is readable or writable, we have to use the following methods: BeanWrapper class.

public boolean isReadableProperty(String prop_Name)
public boolean isWritableProperty(String prop_Name)
