For some time now we're laboring to find the circular reference we're having when initializing the container. It's obviously a subtle case because nobody can find it !
What I'm trying to find out is whether there's a way to find the successive references from the bean of the exception back to itself. So we can narrow down the issue to the related beans.
As Spring is able to detect a circular reference, I guess there is somewhere bean metadata, a data dictionary or something at least allowing it to come to this conclusion.
Is this source of meta-data also available to us ? Or maybe I can just ask the API to find the circular reference for me ?
