I am getting exception when I define an enum class as a Spring bean.





My XML snippet of code:




I understand that the constructor in enum is private.

What is the way around to define a enum class as a Spring bean?

right, the enum cannot be instantianted in the classical bean way.

maybe with a converter type factory ?

http://static.springsource.org/spring/docs/3.0.x/spring-framework-reference/html/ch05s05.html

but to have that enum live in a spring mapped bean, I would think we would still need to create a wrapper bean, that contains a property, that is of the type enum, that woud have its value set using the custom type mapper.
