Java – Is there tooling to visualize a live Spring application context?


Are there any tools that can take a fully-constructed/wired Spring application context and export a visualization of it? I'm talking about a live context that shows the order in which aspects were applied, what beans were auto-wired into other beans, etc.

I know it can be done with the context files themselves (re: Spring IDE). However, I believe the new annotation-driven paradigm defeats this approach.

An Eclipse plug-in or command-line solution is preferred, but I'd also be interested to see if anything like this exists at all.

I am looking for the same tool. Unfortunately, I do not see any other possibility than to wait for Spring 3.2 where should be that feature. See
