I'm looking at writing a web-based admin tool for viewing application configurtaions, and BeanDoc looks like it could deliver a great UI. Now for the catch...I'd like to use it in somewhat of an unorthodox way. I have spring ApplicationContexts stored in a database, and I want to be able to pull the config out of the db, transform it, and serve it up, without writing to the filesystem. Upon quick review of the BeanDoc source, namely org.springframework.beandoc.output.Transformer, it appears that what I'm thinking of would require a fair amount of modification. Has anyone done anything like this?
