Easy integration of Groovy Spring Bean Builder
I'm quite interested in using the groovy spring bean builder as an(other) alternative for configuring Springs bean factory. The bean builder is now independent from the grails project (see Usage of Spring Bean Builder without Grails), so it should be more or less easy to provide some kind of nice integration, probably something like Spring Java Configurations AnnotationApplicationContext and/or ConfigurationPostProcessor.
Anyone else interested in this? Any suggestions for this integration?

I was quite interested to read that Grails supports BeanBuilder without servlet / webflow dependencies (but actually found it not to be the case with the latest release which I believe is still 1.0-rc1). Anyway, it got me thinking about how this would look, so I ended up writing more material than would fit in a forum post. Have a look at this blog http://blog.interface21.com/main/200...-a-groovy-dsl/ and see if it helps.

thanks for your reply and the blog post. As Graeme allready mentioned in his comment to your post, the "stand alone bean builder" is available in the current Grails 1.0-RC2 snapshot available here http://build.canoo.com/grails/artifa...2-SNAPSHOT.zip (You can't download the snapshot while the grails continuous integration build server builds the snapshot.)
