Thanks...why doesnt this work for the "base" config set - ie all files in the Beans Project ?
Spring IDE doesn't know anything about the relationships between the config files of a Spring project. Every config could be used to initialize a single application context. Or some of the config files can be combined to initialize a single application context. Or...
To add this missing information the concept of config sets was introduced in Spring IDE. Within a config set you define a list of config files which are treated as the confguration of a single application context. You can specify the order of config files within this application context to simulate / validate bean overiding.
To make the things more complicated you can add config files from other Spring projects (via external project references) to config sets too ;-)
torsten, thanks. Ive already found IDE very useful in helping document my work.
On the config matter - perhaps a doc update would help ? How about detection of contextConfigLocation in web.xml ?
And to veer off topic - how about a generalised admin app outside of eclipse - given some config and a list of jars to find beans in....help ops, admins and application assemblers build valid config....
