Spring Beans: Table
Column Display Related Tasks Related Topics
The following table lists all the Spring beans that are contained in the current application. Click on the Bean ID to view the configuration of a particular Spring bean.
A Spring bean is a Java object that is instantiated, assembled, and managed by a Spring container, which is a Spring application context. A Spring application contains one or more Spring beans.
A Spring application can contain multiple application contexts, which can be either independent of each other or organized in a hierarchy. However, the Administration Console does not take this into consideration, but rather, lists Spring beans in all application contexts. Refer to the Application Context column of the table to determine the application context to which a particular Spring bean belongs.
NOTE: You must start the application that contains the Spring beans to be able to view their configuration.
You can show fewer or additional data points on this page by expanding Customize this table and modifying the Column Display list. Each data point displays in its own table column.
