I have an (admittedly cosmetic) issue with the Spring IDE plugins for Eclipse that I've not been able to solve. I have a situation in which context files A and B are both imported by context C. B makes use of several beans defined in A, but since they're never used independently (only by C), this isn't a problem.
However, the Spring IDE plugin validator marks all of the references to beans in A in context file B as errors, saying something like "Referenced bean 'foo' not found bar.xml". Obviously this is a correct statement, but in my use case it's not an error.
Is there any way to tell the plugin this, or restructure my XML so that I don't get those errors? This particular issue causes about 50 Spring problems to appear in the problems view, which makes it very difficult to notice when there is a Spring problem that I actually have to solve.
I'm using version 2.2.4.RELEASE of the plugins.
