Hi Grzegorz, hi Reinhard,

thanks for your replies!

I found the documentation on bean maps and Grzegorz' blog entry, but I'm 
not quite sure if I understand the concept correctly. At a first glance 
it looks very similar to Avalon selectors.

E.g. if I instantiate two beans like this:

   <bean name="myproject.Service/foo" … />
   <bean name="myproject.Service/bar" … />

Is this sufficient for accessing the beans via the bean map?

   <bean name="my-client-bean">
     <property name="services">
       <configurator:bean-map type="myproject.Service">

   Service foo = (Service) services.get("foo")

If this is correct, it would solve the problem of registering the beans 
at runtime (IIUC this is the major purpose of the bean map?).

For my understanding: Would this be equivalent to getting the bean 
directly from the app context?

   Service foo = (…) context.getBean(Service.class.getName() + "/foo")

Of course this has the disadvantage that a dependency to Spring is 

Thanks again!
