Is there a way in spring wherein we can read the fields of a bean from the DB table and create a complete bean class - with getters and setters on server startup???
I require this to make my application completely configurable...as in if I have to add a new field in future , all I would require would be adding a field in the db and the bean setters and getters would be available to me.
Nothing in Spring that I know off provides this functionality off the shelf.
