Congratulation to the Spring Framework Team on a new release. Great works.
I have 2 questions related to how Spring initializes and loads beans using an ApplicationContext class
1. Is there a way to globally (I couldn't find it in a DTD) set lazy initialization to true for all beans in all context xml files?
2. Is there a way to stop loading beans when a first error is encountered in context xml files? (for instance, a database is down)
