I have read the below statement on http://www.springframework.org/node/604
I have tried it out and autowired a Service Bean to one of my flow beans. My Service Bean has references to my DAOs and SWF tries to serialize@Autowired flow variables. Flow variables may now have their dependencies @Autowired by Spring, enabling them to hold references to Spring-managed @Services. References to services are automatically re-wired for you between requests after variable deserialization.
Flowbean->Service Bean->Dao->"some stuff which can't and shouldnt be serialized".
Can I avoid to serialize my DAOs? In case of yes what would be the impact?
Thanks for any comments in advance.
