Yikes, I'm afraid this will take 6 months to a year to do, and unless  
you write "jdo for ldap", including an enhancer, I think its' going  
to be pretty painful to add new configuration elements.

Someone suggested a while back that we avoid the "jdo for ldap"  
problem by just storing server.xml in ldap as text.  IIUC this could  
be done in a couple of days.  Exactly how much really useful  
functionality would this lose compared to the fine grained approach?

What if each component/bean configuration were stored as xml text  
separately, each with a (unique) name, and the links were determined  
by the names?

BTW, unless you write a fancy dependency tracking system (i.e. the  
geronimo kernel) I think that any change basically requires stopping  
and restarting the server, so I'm not sure there is really much  
advantage to splitting up each bean separately.

And finally, why are there all these configuration objects that  
spring creates that then go and create the actual runtime objects,  
rather than having spring create the runtime object directly?  In  
particular, why is there an interceptor configuration object rather  
than just interceptors?

Are you finding that Spring has some limitations that you are running  
into?  Otherwise why eliminate it?
