Subject Re: [MINA] ReconnectFilter

Yeah, that is cool.  Sometimes you just have to get it done.  I hear ya. ;-)

Anyway, it's working well for me.  I did have some trouble integrating
it with Spring, as I needed reference to my IoConnection before it was
setup and passing this filter into the Application context at start up
caused a circular reference error.  I ended up handling it by making
the ReconnectionFilter implement Spring's ApplicationContectAware
interface and getting the IoConnection bean only when the closed
connection event was triggered.  I don't particularly like having this
class know about Spring, and also have\ing to know what I named the
IoConnection bean, but I couldn't think of a better solution at the
time.  If anyone has any other suggestions let me know.

I'm also planning on adding a limit to the amount of times that the
filter tries to reconnect, just in case the server it's trying to
establish the connection with really is down.
