B.4. Spring URL handler

The Spring URL handler enables you to deploy a Spring XML resource directly as an OSGi bundle, without needing to create any of the usual OSGi bundle packaging in advance. The spring: scheme can be prefixed to any of the usual location URL handlers (for example, file:, http:, profile:, zk:).
To use the Spring URL handler, create a bundle entry in the agent properties (equivalent to the io.fabric8.agent PID) in the following format:
bundle.ID=spring:LocationScheme:LocationOfBlueprintXML
For example, to load the Spring resource, camel-spring.xml, from the current profile, you could add the following entry to the profile's agent properties:
bundle.spring-resource=spring:profile:camel-spring.xml
Note
If the referenced Spring resource is changed at run time, the Spring URL handler detects this change and automatically reloads the resource.
