Constructor Detail


public BeanFactoryChannelResolver()
Create a new instance of the BeanFactoryChannelResolver class.

The BeanFactory to access must be set via setBeanFactory. This will happen automatically if this resolver is defined within an ApplicationContext thereby receiving the callback upon initialization.

See Also:


public BeanFactoryChannelResolver(BeanFactory beanFactory)
Create a new instance of the BeanFactoryChannelResolver class.

Use of this constructor is redundant if this object is being created by a Spring IoC container as the supplied BeanFactory will be replaced by the BeanFactory that creates it (c.f. the BeanFactoryAware contract). So only use this constructor if you are instantiating this object explicitly rather than defining a bean.

beanFactory - the bean factory to be used to lookup MessageChannels.
