Subject Re: tapestry-spring autowiring
Date Fri, 31 Aug 2007 15:07:04 GMT

Thanks for the advice, I hadn't heard of tapernate.
Basically, I'm trying to expose all of my spring beans to make them
available for autowiring.  I don't want to explicitly declare each one in my
hivemodule.xml if I can avoid it.   I was hoping there might be an existing
module that would take a SpringBeanFactory, iterate through the beans, find
the declared interfaces, and register them with the
RegistryInfrastructureimpl as a ServicePoint (handwave, handwave). 
Customizations might include the ability to package specify what interfaces
to expose, allow for logic to log.error if multiple beans from Spring
support the same interface, etc.  I could definitely see writing a custom
SpringBeanExposer (handwave) that, given a list of spring beans, returns a
map of interfaces to particular spring beans, that the end user had to
At the end of the day, regardless of implementation, I'm basically just
trying to register the interface implemented by the Spring beans in such a
way that those beans are available to the autowiring functionality of
hivemind when an object with a setter matching that interface is being
constructed.  This seemed similar to the existing tapestry-spring exposure,
where any spring bean is available through the spring: namespace, without
having to individually declare each one.
