JavaConfig in Spring 3.0 RC3 issue
Since some core features from the JavaConfig project have been added to the Spring Framework 3.0 now, I am trying to config javaconfig in a web project I am working on. Since Spring 3.0 already include some of the javaconfig, I did not include the org.springframework.config.java-1.0.0.M4.jar in the lib.
The question is how do I config web.xml with Spring 3.0. It seemed that Spring 3.0 does not have a JavaConfigWebApplicationContext which I can init the spring application context. I think I suppose to set it up like below(this was found on the javaconfig project documentation):
<!-- Configuration locations must consist of one or more comma- or space-delimited
fully-qualified @Configuration classes -->
But in Spring 3.0 there is no org.springframework.config.java.context.JavaConfig WebApplicationContext. Any idea how to config javaconfig within Spring 3.0 in a web project?

When posting code use [ code][/code ] tags.
That options isn't available in spring 3.0. The annotated config is scanned by a BeanFactoryPostProcessor. So you need an xml file which either has a context:component-scan or context:annotation-config with a bean definition for your com.company.config.JavaConfig.

Spring JavaConfig was integrated into the core for Spring 3, and some of the naming conventions have been changed. You will want to use AnnotationConfigWebApplicationContext

That is what I figured but couldn't find that class in the javadoc api. I saw the name change in SVN, strange...

The API is changing at a mile a minute right now. I had a similar problem in which my Maven configuration was still pointing to 3.0.0.M3, which did not include these changes. Updating it to 3.0.0.RC3 did the trick.

It works great
Thank you Jamestastic. The AnnotationConfigWebApplicationContext works great for this purpose.
