Is there a way to tell spring about the classes I would like it to look at the annotations for without using XML or having it search the classloader? I would like to get the performance of XML based spring ACs without having to use XML for the configuration of the beans themselves.
Is there a middle ground somewhere?
I am using Spring 2.5.5 and currently have an applicationContext.xml like so currently:
<!-- NOTE: I am not convinced this is a good idea -->
<context:component-scan base-package="org.dspace" name-generator="org.dspace.servicemanager.spring.FullPathBeanNameGenerator" />
