Classes supporting the org.springframework.beans.factory package.


Interface Summary
BeanDefinitionReader Simple interface for bean definition readers.
BeanDefinitionRegistry Interface for registries that hold bean definitions, for example RootBeanDefinition and ChildBeanDefinition instances.
InstantiationStrategy Interface responsible for creating instances corresponding to a root bean definition.
MethodReplacer Interface to be implemented by classes that can reimplement any method on an IoC-managed object: the Method Injection form of Dependency Injection.

Class Summary
AbstractAutowireCapableBeanFactory Abstract BeanFactory superclass that implements default bean creation, with the full capabilities specified by the RootBeanDefinition class.
AbstractBeanDefinition Base class for bean definition objects, factoring out common properties of RootBeanDefinition and ChildBeanDefinition.
AbstractBeanDefinitionReader Abstract base class for bean definition readers which implement the BeanDefinitionReader interface.
AbstractBeanFactory Abstract superclass for BeanFactory implementations, implementing the ConfigurableBeanFactory SPI interface.
AutowireUtils Utility class that contains various methods useful for the implementation of autowire-capable bean factories.
BeanDefinitionReaderUtils Utility methods that are useful for bean definition readers implementations.
BeanDefinitionValueResolver Helper class for use by BeanFactory implementations, resolving values contained in BeanDefinition objects into the actual values applied to th target bean instance.
CglibSubclassingInstantiationStrategy Default object instantiation strategy for use in BeanFactories.
ChildBeanDefinition Bean definition for beans who inherit settings from their parent.
ConfigurableBeanFactoryUtils Helper methods to populate a ConfigurableBeanFactory with resource editors.
DefaultListableBeanFactory Default implementation of the ListableBeanFactory and BeanDefinitionRegistry interfaces: a full-fledged bean factory based on bean definitions.
LookupOverride Represents an override of a method that looks up an object in the same IoC context.
ManagedList Tag subclass used to hold managed List elements, which may include runtime bean references.
ManagedMap Tag collection class used to hold managed Map values, which may include runtime bean references.
ManagedSet Tag collection class used to hold managed Set values, which may include runtime bean references.
MethodOverride Object representing the override of a method on a managed object by the IoC container.
MethodOverrides Set of method overrides, determining which, if any, methods on a managed object the Spring IoC container will override at runtime.
PropertiesBeanDefinitionReader Bean definition reader for a simple properties format.
ReplaceOverride Extension of MethodOverride that represents an arbitrary override of a method by the IoC container.
RootBeanDefinition Root bean definitions are the most common type of bean definition.
SimpleInstantiationStrategy Simple object instantiation strategy for use in a BeanFactory.
StaticListableBeanFactory Static factory that allows to register existing singleton instances programmatically.

Exception Summary
BeanDefinitionValidationException Exception thrown when the validation of a bean definition failed.
