Subject Re: Using auto-discovery for ibatis3 configuration - works great, less XML
Date Mon, 26 Apr 2010 15:16:17 GMT
Sounds very interesting - at least I am interested because we use the same
combination of iBatis and Stripes  in our company. Could you make you
sources accessible somewhere - possibly on iBatis Confluence site? Thank you
in advance.
