I've setup a custom data source. My custom applicationContext file looks like this:
<property name="factory" ref="customDataSourceServiceFactory"/>
<property name="name" value="customDataSource"/>
<property name="serviceClassName" value="com.MyDataSourceService"/>
As the property "serviceClassName" states, it expects a full class name. CustomReportDataSourceServiceFactory.createService(81) will create a new instance of this class and do its magic. The problem with this approach is that we are unable to use a spring bean with injected beans (e.g. a web service bean) because you create a totally new instance instead of injecting an existing bean. If we would be able to define the data source service as follows, then spring beans could be injected and data could be gathered via spring beans.
<property name="serviceClass" ref="myDataSourceService" />
Is it possible to implement this, or should we use another approach to
