Ahh that's great news.  Thanks for for the support.  Might need to take you guys up on that.

Hi Alex,
ServiceMix 3.3 (unreleased, currently in SVN trunk) uses Spring 2.5 and XBean together extensively so I think it should be safe to start down that path.  I don't remember having any major difficulty in doing the upgrade (it was many months ago), but I believe the XBean dependency had to be brought up to a fairly recent release.  I'd be happy to help if you have any issues.

Unfortunately I don't know how compatible spring 2.5 is with xbean-spring and AFAIK no one has changed the documentation recently.  I've heard rumors that spring now has something sort of similar and almost as good as xbean-spring so if true it might be worth switching.

If I was doing it over again I'd look into using jaxb rather than spring but I don't know of any actual projects that have succeeded in doing something like this.... it also might tie you to xml more than you like.

Sorry I don't know more

Also Dave could you point me in the direction of some XBean documentation.  Last time I checked there was not much - hoping that some might have been added since then.  If not I guess I can look at test cases to get a better understanding of how to use it.

Hi David,

Do you see any potential issue with moving to Spring 2.5.x WRT XBean? I was thinking of upgrading but thought I'd check with you first.
