Replace BeanContext with Spring?
Just musing. It would be interesting if there were a JSR to replace the rarely used java.beans.beancontext package with the Spring framework. Or at least, make the actual BeanContext pluggable (whatever that could mean).
Seems at a casual glance that Spring is a more general framework and would allow more modern code techniques to be used within the 'standard' Java platform, such as AOP and declaritive IoC.
Then again, that might slow down Spring's momentum and so forth, or bring in any possible negative side effects of a JSR or other standardization process.
