This forum is now a read-only archive. All commenting, posting, registration services have been turned off. Those needing community support and/or wanting to ask questions should refer to the Tag/Forum map, and to http://spring.io/questions for a curated list of stackoverflow tags that Pivotal engineers, and the community, monitor.
I think you should ask the question regarding SPR-1220 in the Spring core framework forum, not the tooling one here. Or maybe ask that question directly as a comment on that issue in JIRA. Having that directly in the issue also expresses your interest in this more directly and help people to prioritize things.
