How To Access A Value Defined In The Application.properties File In Spring Boot

To access a value defined in the application.properties file in Spring Boot, you can make use of the @Value annotation. Here are the steps:

  1. Open the application.properties file located in the src/main/resources folder.
  2. Define the property key-value pair, for example:
    my.property=my value
    
  3. In your Spring Boot component or bean class, declare a field and annotate it with @Value:
    @Value("${my.property}")
    private String myProperty;
    

    This will inject the value of my.property from the application.properties file into the myProperty field.

You can now use the myProperty field in your code.
