Spring Kotlin References in @Value-annotation

Posted on by Nicolay Mitropolsky

Here is the new blog post on Kotlin and Spring support in IntelliJ IDEA.
The Spring Framework supports reading values from different kinds of sources using the @Value annotation. Completion, reference navigation, and folding property names with their values is now supported for Kotlin in IntelliJ IDEA:

ValueFoldingYou can also use SpEl in the @Value annotation:ValueInSpelOn renaming of the bean properties all of the references are then properly updated:ValueAnnotationAndRenamingSo you can comfortably work with the @Value annotation in Spring-Kotlin projects with IntelliJ IDEA.

There are more posts about Kotlin with Spring support in IntelliJ IDEA coming. Please stay tuned!

    I use a YAML file instead of Properties file.

    The completion does not work with the YAML file, does it?

    import org.springframework.beans.factory.annotation.Value
    import org.springframework.context.annotation.Configuration

    open class databaseHandler() {

    lateinit var roboopsurl: String

    fun get(): Status {
    println(“susan $roboopsurl”)

    I’ve got this, but everytime i run it, via a restcontroller in another class, i get a:
    lateinit property roboopsurl has not been initialized] with root cause
