Subject RE: [mina] Spring integration
Date Wed, 02 Nov 2005 12:06:57 GMT

Personally I would like to see Mina becoming more DI friendly without having
to resort to Spring specific FactoryBeans. I will take a look at the code to
see what would have to be refactored. Most of what I've seen so far only
requires trivial changes (like the setBlacklist() method in the
BlacklistFilter class). FilterChains on the other hand will be a bit harder
I think.

I love this idea. I haven't yet tried to set up my mina objects with 
Spring, except for my ProtocolHandler.
But if I understand it correctly, these FactoryBeans will depend on 
Spring interfaces.
Trustin, that's probably why you want to postpone it until MINA is 
multi-project ?

Wouldn't it be much easier if we make the relevant mina classes 
Dependency Injection friendly ?
without depending on spring (after all that's the idea behind DI).

And people using other DI frameworks would also appreciate it.
Or is this too much work ?
