Subject Re: Jax-RS SpringResourceFactory and lifecycle methods
Date Thu, 29 Aug 2013 12:36:21 GMT
Hi, actually, Spring is not calling lifecycle methods when prototype 
scope beans are used, directly or when wrapped in SpringResourceFactory. 
I've only managed to confirm it is calling these methods for singletons 
(if not wrapped in this factory) or per-request beans.

I think we need to keep the current behavior enabled by default, and I'm 
adding a 'callLifecylceMethods' boolean property to disable it if 
preferred: the only issue here is that in order to disable it one has to 
directly configure SpringResourceFactory which is not as convenient as 
simply listing the bean names, but I'm getting concerned I may break 
someone's code if I disable SpringResourceFactory calling the lifecycle 
methods by default

If you know how to get prototype beans called their lifecycle methods 
then let me know please, I would not then worry about a case where we 
have regular singletons wrapped in the factory because no practical 
reason for doing it exists I guess,

Cheers, Sergey
