How to find AttachmentManager using @Autowire

I have a plugin. It can find the attachment manager using


but I cannot figure out how to autowire it. The relatively straightforward

public MyCustomServlet(AttachmentManager attachmentManager) {


 Produces a stack trace that implies I need to use <component-import>, yet adding @ComponentImport did not resolve that error. I tried adding an import into my own spring xml,

<import resource="classpath:/applicationContext.xml"/>

but that did not work either. What am I missing?

Hi robert_egan_305


This is what i used to do in some of my plugins:


public class MyClass
    protected static final Logger log = LoggerFactory.getLogger(MyClass.class);

    private final AttachmentManager attachmentManager;

@Autowired public MyClass(AttachmentManager attachmentManager) { this.attachmentManager = attachmentManager; }

It seems you need all 3 annotations. @Scanned, @ComponentImport, AND  @Autowired.




First time I deal with this "new way" of DI i found quite useful the following documentation:

Hope this help to you as well.
