Spring @PostConstruct depending on @Profile

I'd like to have multiple @PostConstruct annotated methods in one configuration class, that should be called dependent on the @Profile. You can imagine a code snipped like this:

@Configuration
public class SilentaConfiguration {

private static final Logger LOG = LoggerFactory.getLogger(SilentaConfiguration.class);

@Autowired
private Environment env;

@PostConstruct @Profile("test")
public void logImportantInfomationForTest() {
LOG.info("********** logImportantInfomationForTest");
}

@PostConstruct @Profile("development")
public void logImportantInfomationForDevelopment() {
LOG.info("********** logImportantInfomationForDevelopment");
}
}


However according to the javadoc of @PostConstruct I can only have one method annotated with this annotation. There is an open improvement for that in Spring's Jira https://jira.spring.io/browse/SPR-12433.

How do you solved this requirement? I can always split this configuration class into multiple classes, but maybe you have a better idea/solution.

BTW. The code above runs without problems, however both methods are called regardless of the profile settings.

Answer

You can check for profile with Environment within a single @PostContruct.

An if statement would do the trick.
