Hi Bart,

every component inside Axon can be defined using simple Java. There is no spring-magic involved anywhere.

For example, if you want annotation support, you can wrap your annotated bean inside an AnnotationEventHandlerWrapper, which in turn implements the necessary interface to be registered with the event bus. Similar classes exist for all mechanisms.

I do have to admit that I haven’t tried to configure a whole application using “plain Java” yet. But in my unit tests, all instances are configured using simple java calls.

So I don’t see any difficulties there.
