How to have multiple public classes in one file for spring?

I'm trying to instantiate some classes using spring with java. This is working.

I'm trying to apply this to some automated code generation and I would like to have all my code in a single file.

Unfortunately, java only lets me have one public class in each source code file. When spring tries to instantiate classes that are not public, it cannot.

Is there a way around this java constraint? Maybe some scripting language like groovy?

Thanks,
Siegfried

Yup, it works with groovy. Apparently groovy ignores the keyword public in front of classes and makes all classes public.
