My previous post had a slight mistake. The name of the class is AnnotationBeanConfigurerAspect.
Also The relevant section in the spring manual i was referring to was (18.104.22.168. Working with multiple application contexts), if this may help anybody make sense of my issue.
Not what JBoss + Spring integration is about - see Sticky at the top of the start forum page.
More of a Spring forum type question.
I will eventually move your question out of this forum.
