I have an object that contains 4 maps, all of which are rather large amounts of static data. I would like to split the maps up into separate files, but you can make a map a bean, so I can't have <property name="map1" ref="map1Bean"> or at least I can't tell that I can.

this is what I have


I would like to do this so I can put maps in separate files



Is this possible ?

If you're using Spring 2, you can create maps as beans using the <util:map> configuration element.

First, you'll need to add the util namespace:



Then, create your map:



Then you can wire "myMap" into a Map property.
