Spring Bean DI- Setter based injection with XML Metadata configuration

In this tutorial we will discuss about dependency injection done via setter injection.To perform setter based dependency injection container first calls no-argument constructor or no-argument static factory method to instantiate bean and after instantiating bean it will calls setter method on beans.

Note**: In case there is an argument based constructor is defined in class but no no-arg constructor is there then setter injection can not be performed. Hence no-arg constructor
would be required to perform setter injection.

Example : Address class has 5 properties(flatNo, bldgNo, streetNo, city, pincode). Setter injection can be done by providing below configuration.
