Create Spring Bean where class is a string?


Is there some kind of bean factory or static class that I can use within a Spring configuration file to create an instance of a Java class and set its properties? Something like this:

<bean id="myThingy" class="org.whatever.specialBeanMaker"> <property class="${maven.filtered.property.value}" /> <properties> <property name="a" value="...." /> <property name="b" value="...." /> <property name="c" value="...." /> </properties> </bean>

In other words, I need to make a bean from a class I won't know until runtime (because of filtering, JNDI, propertyPlaceholderConfigurer, etc.


No need for anything special. Just do it like you'd expect:

<bean class="${whateverClass}"/>
