Spring Beans: Configuration
Configuration Options Related Tasks Related Topics
This page describes the general configuration of this 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.
Most of the configuration attributes of the Spring bean are static and defined in the configuration file of the Spring application. You can only view the configuration attributes; you cannot dynamically change them at runtime using the Administration console.
NOTE: You must start the application that contains the Spring beans to be able to view their configuration.
