No, Java doesn't let you do this, so Spring won't either.

Actually, you can with Spring AOP.

It is called Introductions, and here is a link to the docs that shows how to do this

To be exact, introduction need to be done at compilation time ,not runtime, cause at that moment ,bean has been created.

thanks.

Well some byte code manuplation apis are availble like Javassist.
But, I am still interested why AOP will not work in your case.
Have you really read the concept? Don't mind its just I am big fan of spring AOP.

Hi, actually I don't believe IntroductionInterceptor can change class dynamically. I think it can intercept and add additional features that the original Java class doesn't have. I posted a question regarding this. Check it out and see if it's your case or not:

How to use IntroductionInterceptor...

well, javassist can't change class behavior after they are created, but that's exactly what I need.

These introduction methods are added to the code via AOP/Proxies and are created at runtime, not a special compile time thing to do. Spring AOP creates DynamicProxies at runtime.
