Inject Bundle Context

Blueprint has some beans with reserved ids. One of those ids is blueprintBundleContext. The bundle context can be inject by reference with passing the id.

This sets the bundle context to the property bundleContext on construction:

<bean id="service.pool" class="servicePool">
	<property name="bundleContext" ref="blueprintBundleContext" />


The scope of the bean defines if a bean is created as a singleton or if the Blueprint container creates a new instance on every call.

Available scopes are singleton and prototype.

If the bean is defined inside a service element then the scope is prototype by default.
