Spring Boot can't autowire @ConfigurationProperties

Maifee Ul Asad :

Here is my FileStorageProperties class:

 @ConfigurationProperties(prefix = "file")
 public class FileStorageProperties {
       private String uploadDir;

This gives me saying : not registered via @enableconfigurationproperties or marked as spring component.

And here is my FileStorageService :

public class FileStorageService {

private final Path fileStorageLocation;

public FileStorageService(FileStorageProperties fileStorageProperties) {
    this.fileStorageLocation = Paths.get(fileStorageProperties.getUploadDir())

    try {
    } catch (Exception ex) {
        throw new FileStorageException("Could not create the directory where the uploaded files will be stored.", ex);

public String storeFile(MultipartFile file) {
    // Normalize file name
    String fileName = StringUtils.cleanPath(file.getOriginalFilename());

    try {
        // Check if the file's name contains invalid characters
        if(fileName.contains("..")) {
            throw new FileStorageException("Sorry! Filename contains invalid path sequence " + fileName);

        // Copy file to the target location (Replacing existing file with the same name)
        Path targetLocation = this.fileStorageLocation.resolve(fileName);
        Files.copy(file.getInputStream(), targetLocation, StandardCopyOption.REPLACE_EXISTING);

        return fileName;
    } catch (IOException ex) {
        throw new FileStorageException("Could not store file " + fileName + ". Please try again!", ex);

public Resource loadFileAsResource(String fileName) {
    try {
        Path filePath = this.fileStorageLocation.resolve(fileName).normalize();
        Resource resource = new UrlResource(filePath.toUri());
        if(resource.exists()) {
            return resource;
        } else {
            throw new MyFileNotFoundException("File not found " + fileName);
    } catch (MalformedURLException ex) {
        throw new MyFileNotFoundException("File not found " + fileName, ex);

This gives me error saying : could not autowire no beans of type found.

And here is my project structure :

Spring Boot can't autowire @ConfigurationProperties - project structure

And when I try to run it, it gives me :



Parameter 0 of constructor in com.mua.cse616.Service.FileStorageService required a bean of type 'com.mua.cse616.Property.FileStorageProperties' that could not be found.

The injection point has the following annotations: - @org.springframework.beans.factory.annotation.Autowired(required=true)


Consider defining a bean of type 'com.mua.cse616.Property.FileStorageProperties' in your configuration.

How can I resolve this?

Prashant :

This is expected as @ConfigurationProperties does not make a class a Spring Component. Mark the class with @Component and it should work. Note that a class can only be injected if it is a Component.
