Spring-like wiring in Java

I dont think we have such 'wiring' in Java (up to 1.5).

Or am I wrong, and there is such in Java?

In another thought, annotations can 'emulate' 'wiring'.

Any thoughts?

Wiring using annotations seems to be too much work.

My point is, it will really be great if we have such 'wiring' in Java. It would mean another container/framework, but maybe it could be implemented just like in Spring, which can be used in non-intrusive and non-Spring-coupled way.

You can still use wiring with Spring without annotation, mate. Just use the traditional XML Configuration if you don't want to use annotation.

Or if you want to use pure Java, take a look at Spring JavaConfig. I'm currently using it. I prefer that over annotation or XML configuration.
