Subject Re: RE: Spring Injection Strange behaviour - SOLVED!

Finally I found the root cause.
It seems I had some Spring jars of an earlier version in my Tomcat lib directory on my dev
machine, since I have more than one version of tomcat on my system I was looking in the wrong
instance of tomcat when I was trying identify the cause. Sometimes I am such an idiot.

Hi Dave,
Thanks for your reply.
I tried setting the scope of the action bean to prototype  (amoung 100 other things) but
it didn't change the behaviour.  I'm using Struts2 with Sping plugin,  jdk1.8.0_51.
If it wasn't calling the setter that would make more sense, but sine it is calling the setter
that makes me beleive he autowiring is working, I just can't understand why its later being
set to null. I thought it might be a scope issue but I don't know enough about struts to dig
much deeper.

Not sure, but if nothing else the action should be set to `prototype` scope, as they're instantiated
Are you using the Struts 2 Spring plugin?
