public class GenericBeanDefinition
extends AbstractBeanDefinition

GenericBeanDefinition is a one-stop shop for standard bean definition purposes. Like any bean definition, it allows for specifying a class plus optionally constructor argument values and property values. Additionally, deriving from a parent bean definition can be flexibly configured through the "parentName" property.

In general, use this GenericBeanDefinition class for the purpose of registering user-visible bean definitions (which a post-processor might operate on, potentially even reconfiguring the parent name). Use RootBeanDefinition / ChildBeanDefinition where parent/child relationships happen to be pre-determined.
