I'm wanting to load a class on startup of a webservice packaged in an aar file (it's basically a cache of an XML instance of a config pulled from a database). I've seen some Spring examples of how to create SpringBeans, but I'm not entirely sure how that applies. I've also seen references to AxisServlet, but that doesn't seem to be quite what I'm looking for either. I feel like I'm close to the right path, but it sure is blurry. Can I get a little clarity (please)?
