@Autowired for Lists of beans
I have currently found out that it is possible to autowire bean attributes of generic lists and correctly retrieve beans that match the generic type of the list. I am really curious on how this is implemented since type erasure does remove this type of information (as far as I understand it). Can anyone point me to the place in the source where this is implemented? I reviewed parts of listablebeanfactory but did not find the code at first glance. I would really appreciate any hints.
Found answer to my question. I was confused with how type erasure works - generally all information that can be safely computed at compile time is also available at runtime. Here is a link to a pragmatic article that shows some simple code snippets. Sorry for polluting this forum but maybe this was helpful to at least one other person
