Thanks for these examples,

I have a small doubt regarding your statement about a bean
according to you
“All the classes you need to use in Spring Ioc container are consider “bean””

are beans the classes or the objects created by IOC containers to manage our application.
I am new to this framework and i have this question,am really sorry if it sounds stupid.
