    <p>The Spring Configurator is a useful component providing support in common
--- configuration issues when using the Spring framework. Although this product has
--- been developed inside the Cocoon project, it is aimed at making easier the usage
--- of Spring in each and every web application; it is not tied to the famous Cocoon
--- web application framework and can be used standalone. The impact on your code is
--- nearly zero and the Spring Configurator as only Spring itself as a dependency.

    <h2>Motivation</h2>
    
    <p>When using a framework like Spring there are always the same problems to
(2 equal lines skipped)
    <ul>
    <li>Where do I store my bean configurations?</li>
    <li>How can I parameterize them dynamically?</li>
--- <li>Where do I store these extra information?</li>
--- <li>How can I handle different environments like a testing environment, a
--- development environment and a production environment?</li>
--- <li>How can I distribute not only code but also corresponding configurations?
--- </li>
+++ <li>Where do I store this extra information?</li>
+++ <li>How can I handle different environments for testing or development or
+++ production?</li>
+++ <li>How can I distribute code configuration information?</li>
    <li>How can I distribute partial web applications?</li>
    <li>How do I manage hierarchial web application contexts?</li>
    </ul>
    
--- <p>Of course Spring is flexible enough to enable solutions to the above
--- problems, but you have to do it and implement it for your solution. And there is
--- more than one way of doing this and each and every project ends up developing
--- its own "proprietary" solution. A best practice and a standardized way of doing
--- these things would be great. And guess what, the Spring Configurator is the
--- answer to your problems. Like Maven has standardized the build process, the
--- Spring Configurator standardizes the way of dealing with various configuration
--- issues with Spring. Ok, enough motivation, let's see what the Spring
--- configurator can provide for your work.</p>
