I am just getting into spring. All of the examples I have seen use a java main file to get started creating application contexts and such. Is there a standalone "generic spring main" that ships with that would allow you to just wire beans and such without having to write the code starting the application context? I have googled around quite a bit but have not come up with anything.
Something like "springcontainer <app-context-type> <app-context-type-arguements>"
where the "springcontainer" is an executable?
I realize that the above may be limiting. So perhaps there is something even better like:
where the configuration XML would contain app-context wiring regarding a hierarchy of app-contexts?
I also realize this may be covered in the web-based features of spring (haven't gotten that far yet)?
