using spring 2.5, there doesn't seem to be a way to auto-discover aspect annotations... so although I can remove all xml and use a classpath scan for initialization there doesn't appear to be a way to leverage the @Aspect beans I have with an XML description...
first, am I missing something?
second, any plans to support this? It seems like a reasonable next step. Especially since you can use an exclude filter is you need it.
Additionally I tried making an @Aspect class a @Component thinking that would register it as a spring bean. No Joy! and it feels bad as well so don't let that be the option of support.
