Hi Suhaas,

As part of the OpenEJB 3.1 release we added some Spring integration  
code that should help to sew things together.  We consider it a  
prototype and will be relying heavily on feedback to improve it.  I've  
created an example which helps to show how it works.

We've also rewritten this page to detail some of the new functionality.

For use in a webapp, you won't want to use the ClassPathApplication or  
Application beans.  For this first iteration you'll have to use the  
org.apache.openejb.spring.EJB bean to import the beans you want to  
make available to Spring.  We would like to fix things up so the same  
"automatic" behavior works the same way in all settings; embedded,  
standalone, in tomcat.  So the beans ClassPathApplication and  
Application will likely be deprecated and replaced with something that  
does exactly that.

Anyway, give it a look over and try some things out.  We are  
definitely open to feature requests on this functionality.
