I am developing an XML-based configuration tool called JICE that is very similar to the XmlBeanFactory of Spring Framework.
In order to use JICE with Spring, I would like to implement a custom BeanFactory that would internally initialize beans with JICE. This would make it possible to plug JICE into Spring applications.
what things should I consider in creating such an implementation? is it enough to just implement the BeanFactory interface? or should I implement the ApplicationContext interface?
