Package org.springframework.beans.factory.config

SPI interfaces and configuration-related convenience classes for bean factories.


Interface Summary
AutowireCapableBeanFactory Extension of the BeanFactory interface to be implemented by bean factories that are capable of autowiring, provided that they want to expose this functionality for existing bean instances.
BeanDefinition A BeanDefinition describes a bean instance, which has property values, constructor argument values, and further information supplied by concrete implementations.
BeanExpressionResolver Strategy interface for resolving a value through evaluating it as an expression, if applicable.
BeanFactoryPostProcessor Allows for custom modification of an application context's bean definitions, adapting the bean property values of the context's underlying bean factory.
BeanPostProcessor Factory hook that allows for custom modification of new bean instances, e.g.
BeanReference Interface that exposes a reference to a bean name in an abstract fashion.
ConfigurableBeanFactory Configuration interface to be implemented by most bean factories.
ConfigurableListableBeanFactory Configuration interface to be implemented by most listable bean factories.
DestructionAwareBeanPostProcessor Subinterface of BeanPostProcessor that adds a before-destruction callback.
InstantiationAwareBeanPostProcessor Subinterface of BeanPostProcessor that adds a before-instantiation callback, and a callback after instantiation but before explicit properties are set or autowiring occurs.
Scope Strategy interface used by a ConfigurableBeanFactory, representing a target scope to hold bean instances in.
SingletonBeanRegistry Interface that defines a registry for shared bean instances.
SmartInstantiationAwareBeanPostProcessor Extension of the InstantiationAwareBeanPostProcessor interface, adding a callback for predicting the eventual type of a processed bean.

Class Summary
AbstractFactoryBean<T> Simple template superclass for FactoryBean implementations that creates a singleton or a prototype object, depending on a flag.
BeanDefinitionHolder Holder for a BeanDefinition with name and aliases.
BeanDefinitionVisitor Visitor class for traversing BeanDefinition objects, in particular the property values and constructor argument values contained in them, resolving bean metadata values.
BeanExpressionContext Context object for evaluating an expression within a bean definition.
BeanReferenceFactoryBean FactoryBean that exposes an arbitrary target bean under a different name.
CommonsLogFactoryBean Factory bean for commons-logging Log instances.
ConstructorArgumentValues Holder for constructor argument values, typically as part of a bean definition.
ConstructorArgumentValues.ValueHolder Holder for a constructor argument value, with an optional type attribute indicating the target type of the actual constructor argument.
CustomEditorConfigurer BeanFactoryPostProcessor implementation that allows for convenient registration of custom property editors.
CustomScopeConfigurer Simple BeanFactoryPostProcessor implementation that registers custom Scope(s) with the containing ConfigurableBeanFactory.
DependencyDescriptor Descriptor for a specific dependency that is about to be injected.
FieldRetrievingFactoryBean FactoryBean which retrieves a static or non-static field value.
InstantiationAwareBeanPostProcessorAdapter Adapter that implements all methods on SmartInstantiationAwareBeanPostProcessor as no-ops, which will not change normal processing of each bean instantiated by the container.
ListFactoryBean Simple factory for shared List instances.
MapFactoryBean Simple factory for shared Map instances.
MethodInvokingFactoryBean FactoryBean which returns a value which is the result of a static or instance method invocation.
ObjectFactoryCreatingFactoryBean A FactoryBean implementation that returns a value which is an ObjectFactory that in turn returns a bean sourced from a BeanFactory.
PreferencesPlaceholderConfigurer Subclass of PropertyPlaceholderConfigurer that supports JDK 1.4's Preferences API (java.util.prefs).
PropertiesFactoryBean Allows for making a properties file from a classpath location available as Properties instance in a bean factory.
PropertyOverrideConfigurer Property resource configurer that overrides bean property values in an application context definition.
PropertyPathFactoryBean FactoryBean that evaluates a property path on a given target object.
PropertyPlaceholderConfigurer A property resource configurer that resolves placeholders in bean property values of context definitions.
PropertyResourceConfigurer Allows for configuration of individual bean property values from a property resource, i.e.
RuntimeBeanNameReference Immutable placeholder class used for a property value object when it's a reference to another bean name in the factory, to be resolved at runtime.
RuntimeBeanReference Immutable placeholder class used for a property value object when it's a reference to another bean in the factory, to be resolved at runtime.
ServiceLocatorFactoryBean A FactoryBean implementation that takes an interface which must have one or more methods with the signatures MyType xxx() or MyType xxx(MyIdType id) (typically, MyService getService() or MyService getService(String id)) and creates a dynamic proxy which implements that interface, delegating to an underlying BeanFactory.
SetFactoryBean Simple factory for shared Set instances.
TypedStringValue Holder for a typed String value.
