No, I don't think so - now I think I remember - I used the "id"
attribute at some point of time (therefore the dot) and later on I found
out about the name attribute.

Both :) The map uses the interface to search for all beans of this
interface. Then the interface name is used as a prefix to find the
selector hint (key). So if a bean for interface "foo.Bar" is found and
has the bean name "foo.Bar.x" , the bean is registered with "x" in the
map. If the name is "foo.Bar/y", it's registered with "y" in the map.
