I have two configuration files, applicationContext.xml and dispatcher-servlet.xml. I'm referencing a bean defined in one file from the other. I'm using the "ref bean=" syntax (not local). Anything else I need to do to get this to work? The stack trace is telling me that it can't resolve the reference and then listing out all the bean names defined locally (as if that is the only place it's looking).
<bean id="bean1" class="...
<bean id="bean2" class="...
<property name="b1"><ref bean="bean1"/></property>
