Package org.springframework.context.annotation

Annotation support for the Application Context, including JSR-250 "common" annotations, component-scanning, and Java-based metadata for creating Spring-managed objects.

Interface Summary
ScopeMetadataResolver Strategy interface for resolving the scope of bean definitions.
 

Class Summary
AnnotationBeanNameGenerator BeanNameGenerator implementation for bean classes annotated with the @Component annotation or with another annotation that is itself annotated with @Component as a meta-annotation.
AnnotationConfigBeanDefinitionParser Parser for the <context:annotation-config/> element.
AnnotationConfigUtils Utility class that allows for convenient registration of common BeanPostProcessor and BeanFactoryPostProcessor definitions for annotation-based configuration.
AnnotationScopeMetadataResolver A ScopeMetadataResolver implementation that by default checks for the presence of Spring's Scope annotation on the bean class.
ClassPathBeanDefinitionScanner A bean definition scanner that detects bean candidates on the classpath, registering corresponding bean definitions with a given registry (BeanFactory or ApplicationContext).
ClassPathScanningCandidateComponentProvider A component provider that scans the classpath from a base package.
CommonAnnotationBeanPostProcessor BeanPostProcessor implementation that supports common Java annotations out of the box, in particular the JSR-250 annotations in the javax.annotation package.
ComponentScanBeanDefinitionParser Parser for the <context:component-scan/> element.
ConfigurationClassPostProcessor BeanFactoryPostProcessor used for bootstrapping processing of @Configuration classes.
ScannedGenericBeanDefinition Extension of the GenericBeanDefinition class, based on an ASM ClassReader, with support for annotation metadata exposed through the AnnotatedBeanDefinition interface.
ScopeMetadata Describes scope characteristics for a Spring-managed bean including the scope name and the scoped-proxy behavior.
 

Enum Summary
FilterType Enumeration of the valid type filters to be added for annotation-driven configuration.
ScopedProxyMode Enumerates the various scoped-proxy options.
 

Annotation Types Summary
Bean Indicates that a method produces a bean to be managed by the Spring container.
Configuration Indicates that a class declares one or more Bean methods and may be processed by the Spring container to generate bean definitions and service requests for those beans at runtime.
DependsOn Beans on which the current bean depends.
Import Annotation that allows one Configuration class to import another Configuration, and thereby all its Bean definitions.
Lazy Indicates whether a bean is to be lazily initialized.
Primary Indicates that a bean should be given preference when multiple candidates are qualified to autowire a single-valued dependency.
Scope When used as a type-level annotation in conjunction with the Component annotation, indicates the name of a scope to use for instances of the annotated type.
