Method Detail

postProcessBeanDefinitionRegistry

void postProcessBeanDefinitionRegistry(BeanDefinitionRegistry registry)
                                       throws BeansException
Modify the application context's internal bean definition registry after its standard initialization. All regular bean definitions will have been loaded, but no beans will have been instantiated yet. This allows for adding further bean definitions before the next post-processing phase kicks in.

Parameters:
registry - the bean definition registry used by the application context
Throws:
BeansException - in case of errors
