Subject [PROPOSAL] Modularize Spring
Date Tue, 17 Sep 2013 22:10:31 GMT
Currently ACS code is fairly modular in that you can add plug-ins to ACS to
extend most functionality.  Unfortunately ACS is not packaged in a modular
way.  It is still delivered essentially as one large unit.  There are many
reason for this but one large barrier to modularizing ACS is that the
Spring configuration is managed as one large unit.

I propose that we break apart the Spring XML configuration such that each
component contributes its own configuration.  Additionally each component
will be loaded into its own Spring ApplicationContext such that its beans
will not conflict with the wiring of other beans in ACS.  This change will
lay the foundation for a richer plugin model and additionally a more
distributed architecture.

The technical details for this proposal can be found on the wiki [1].
