	Spring XML Beans Schema, version 2.0
	Authors: Rob Harrop, Juergen Hoeller

	This defines a simple and consistent way of creating a namespace
	of JavaBeans objects, managed by a Spring BeanFactory, read by
	XmlBeanDefinitionReader (with DefaultBeanDefinitionDocumentReader).

	This document type is used by most Spring functionality, including
	web application contexts, which are based on bean factories.

	Each "bean" element in this document defines a JavaBean.
	Typically the bean class is specified, along with JavaBean properties
	and/or constructor arguments.

	A bean instance can be a "singleton" (shared instance) or a "prototype"
	(independent instance). Further scopes can be provided by extended
	bean factories, for example in a web environment.

	References among beans are supported, that is, setting a JavaBean property
	or a constructor argument to refer to another bean in the same factory
	(or an ancestor factory).

	As alternative to bean references, "inner bean definitions" can be used.
	Singleton flags of such inner bean definitions are effectively ignored:
	inner beans are typically anonymous prototypes.

	There is also support for lists, sets, maps, and java.util.Properties
	as bean property types or constructor argument types.

	Controls whether bean properties are "autowired".
	This is an automagical process in which bean references don't need
	to be coded explicitly in the XML bean definition file, but rather the
	Spring container works out dependencies.

	There are 5 modes:

	1. "no"
	The traditional Spring default. No automagical wiring. Bean references
	must be defined in the XML file via the <ref/> element (or "ref"
	attribute). We recommend this in most cases as it makes documentation
	more explicit.

	2. "byName"
	Autowiring by property name. If a bean of class Cat exposes a dog
	property, Spring will try to set this to the value of the bean "dog"
	in the current container. If there is no matching bean by name, nothing
	special happens; use dependency-check="objects" to raise an error in
	that case.

	3. "byType"
	Autowiring if there is exactly one bean of the property type in the
	container. If there is more than one, a fatal error is raised, and
	you cannot use byType autowiring for that bean. If there is none,
	nothing special happens; use dependency-check="objects" to raise an
	error in that case.

	4. "constructor"
	Analogous to "byType" for constructor arguments. If there is not exactly
	one bean of the constructor argument type in the bean factory, a fatal
	error is raised.

	5. "autodetect"
	Chooses "constructor" or "byType" through introspection of the bean
	class. If a default constructor is found, "byType" gets applied.

	Note that explicit dependencies, i.e. "property" and "constructor-arg"
	elements, always override autowiring. Autowire behavior can be combined
	with dependency checking, which will be performed after all autowiring
	has been completed.

	Note: This attribute will not be inherited by child bean definitions.
	Hence, it needs to be specified per concrete bean definition.

	to a constructor. However, it may be on a different class. In that case,
	the created object will *not* be of the class specified in the "class"
	attribute. This is analogous to FactoryBean behavior.

	If the "factory-bean" attribute is present, the "class" attribute is not
	used, and the factory method will be an instance method on the object
	returned from a getBean call with the specified bean name. The factory
	bean may be defined as a singleton or a prototype.

	The factory method can have any number of arguments. Autowiring is not
	supported. Use indexed constructor-arg elements in conjunction with the
	factory-method attribute.

	Setter Injection can be used in conjunction with a factory method.
	Method Injection cannot, as the factory method returns an instance,
