Quick tip: Referencing other Properties in Spring

In Spring property (or yaml) files we can reference other properties using the ${..} syntax.

For example:


If we now access the external.productService property (e.g. by using the @Value annotation) we will get the value https://api.external.com/product-service.

For example:

private String productServiceUrl; // https://api.external.com/product-service

This way we can avoid duplication of commonly used values in property and yaml files.
