Extensible XML authoring: how to use a completely custom XML?
I'm want to define my own custom XML for defining my system components. I've been playing around with the "Extensible XML authoring" feature and I like it.
One thing, though. I want the XML to be completely "Spring free". No schema definition, no <beans> tags. I just want to have my own XML. The main structure still fits, though.
The main solution I could think of, was to modify the file before sending it to Spring for processing, either programmatically, or using XSLT. I can see several downsides to this solution. Anyone can think of another solution?
