Is there an implementation of database bean-factory developed or designed available ? Or is there any discussion regarding this ?
If not available, can anybody give me few points to keep in mind while developing one ?
By DatabaseBeanFactory, I mean an implementation of org.springframework.beans.factory.BeanFactory, which reads bean-definitions from a database, instead of XML file, as in the case of XMLBeanFactory.
this was going through my mind recently, too...
this would be quite usefule, would it not? if we can store all the entities and more importantly - relationships b/w entities - information straight in the DB and then be able to change it more "dynamically" by altering the DB file, or better yet - thru some interface to it...
could you, please, let me know if you find out anything?
