applyDefaults

public void applyDefaults(BeanDefinitionDefaults defaults)
Apply the provided default values to this bean.

Parameters:
defaults - the defaults to apply

hasBeanClass

public boolean hasBeanClass()
Return whether this definition specifies a bean class.


setBeanClass

public void setBeanClass(java.lang.Class beanClass)
Specify the class for this bean.


getBeanClass

public java.lang.Class getBeanClass()
                             throws java.lang.IllegalStateException
Return the class of the wrapped bean, if already resolved.

Returns:

Throws:
java.lang.IllegalStateException - if the bean definition does not define a bean class, or a specified bean class name has not been resolved into an actual Class

setBeanClassName

public void setBeanClassName(java.lang.String beanClassName)
Description copied from interface: BeanDefinition
Override the bean class name of this bean definition.

The class name can be modified during bean factory post-processing, typically replacing the original class name with a parsed variant of it.

Specified by:
setBeanClassName in interface BeanDefinition

getBeanClassName

public java.lang.String getBeanClassName()
Description copied from interface: BeanDefinition
Return the current bean class name of this bean definition.

Note that this does not have to be the actual class name used at runtime, in case of a child definition overriding/inheriting the class name from its parent. Hence, do not consider this to be the definitive bean type at runtime but rather only use it for parsing purposes at the individual bean definition level.

Specified by:
getBeanClassName in interface BeanDefinition

resolveBeanClass

                                 throws java.lang.ClassNotFoundException

@Deprecated
public void setSingleton(boolean singleton)
Deprecated. since Spring 2.5, in favor of setScope(java.lang.String)

Set if this a Singleton, with a single, shared instance returned on all calls. In case of "false", the BeanFactory will apply the Prototype design pattern, with each caller requesting an instance getting an independent instance. How this is exactly defined will depend on the BeanFactory.

"Singletons" are the commoner type, so the default is "true". Note that as of Spring 2.0, this flag is just an alternative way to specify scope="singleton" or scope="prototype".

See Also:
setScope(java.lang.String), BeanDefinition.SCOPE_SINGLETON, BeanDefinition.SCOPE_PROTOTYPE

Default is "false". Specify true to tell the bean factory to not try to instantiate that particular bean in any case.


isAbstract

public boolean isAbstract()
Return whether this bean is "abstract", i.e. not meant to be instantiated itself but rather just serving as parent for concrete child bean definitions.

Specified by:

Set whether this bean should be lazily initialized.

If false, the bean will get instantiated on startup by bean factories that perform eager initialization of singletons.

Specified by:
isLazyInit in interface BeanDefinition

setAutowireMode

public void setAutowireMode(int autowireMode)
Set the autowire mode. This determines whether any automagical detection and setting of bean references will happen. Default is AUTOWIRE_NO, which means there's no autowire.

Parameters:
autowireMode - the autowire mode to set. Must be one of the constants defined in this class.
See Also:
AUTOWIRE_NO, AUTOWIRE_BY_NAME, AUTOWIRE_BY_TYPE, AUTOWIRE_CONSTRUCTOR, AUTOWIRE_AUTODETECT
