Purpose

Access Spring managed bean within ZK framework

We assume you are already familiar with the Spring Framework - If not please refer to the official and extensive Spring Framework Documentation.

DelegatingVariableResolver

You can access any spring managed beans by its id within ZK, for example, on the ZUML page by declaring variable-resolver for DelegatingVariableResolver at the top of your ZUML page.

Lets define a simple bean first

package org.zkoss.zkspringessentials.beans;
public class SimpleBean {
        private String message;
        
        public SimpleBean(String msg) {
                this.message = msg;
        }
        public String getMessage() {
                return message;
        }
}

Spring offers different ways of declaring your beans. The classical way is to declare this bean in your applicationContext.xml Spring configuration file as below.

<bean id="simpleBean" class="org.zkoss.zkspringessentials.beans.SimpleBean">
    <constructor-arg value="Hello from a simple bean"/>
</bean>

The alternative Java Config to achieve the same (choose for yourself: Spring and ZK will treat both beans equivalently during runtime):

    @Bean
    public SimpleBean simpleBean() {
        return new SimpleBean("Hello from a simple bean");
    }

Now using the DelegatingVariableResolver you can access this bean in ZSCRIPT, EL expressions and ZK data binding annotations.

Access Spring beans in ZSCRIPT

You can access SimpleBean by its bean id in ZSCRIPT as shown below

<?variable-resolver class="org.zkoss.zkplus.spring.DelegatingVariableResolver"?>
<zk>
<zscript>
        String msg = simpleBean.message;
</zscript>
<window title="Bean in ZScript" width="640px" border="normal" >
    <label value="${msg}"/>
</window>
</zk>

Access Spring beans in EL expressions

Similarly you can also access Spring managed beans in any EL expressions as shown below

<?variable-resolver class="org.zkoss.zkplus.spring.DelegatingVariableResolver"?>
<zk>
<window title="Bean in EL Expression" width="640px" border="normal" >
    <label value="${simpleBean.message}"/>
</window>
</zk>

Access Spring beans in ZK Databinding annotations

The same DelegatingVariableResolver also resolves Spring beans in ZK Databinding expressions:

<?variable-resolver class="org.zkoss.zkplus.spring.DelegatingVariableResolver"?>
<zk>
<window title="Bean in Databinding Annotation" width="640px" border="normal" 
    viewModel="...">
    <label value="@load(simpleBean.message)"/>
</window>
</zk>

SpringUtil

You can also access Spring beans on a ZUML page without DelegatingVariableResolver by using a utility class SpringUtil method SpringUtil.getBean(). Here is an example code to demonstrate this

<zk>
<zscript>
        import org.zkoss.zkplus.spring.SpringUtil;
        import org.zkoss.zkspringessentials.beans.*;
        SimpleBean simple = SpringUtil.getBean("simpleBean");
        String msg = simple.getMessage();
</zscript>
<window title="Example for SpringUtil#getBean" width="640px" border="normal" >
    <label value="${msg}"/>
</window>
</zk>
