Keith Donald opened SPR-7484 and commented

Currently use of @Configuration requires cglib when defining scoped beans. In general, cglib is not needed when AspectJ is already being used. As a user, I'd like to be able to use the full-power of @Configuration with AspectJ, and without being required to add cglib to my classpath.

Affects: 3.0.4

Issue Links:

  • #12840 Support for ByteBuddy as an alternative to CGLIB ("is depended on by")
  • #14303 Upgrade to ASM 4.0 and CGLIB 3.0
  • #12027 @Async support in spring-aspects with AspectJ

Resolving as "Won't Fix" for now given that (a) there hasn't been much further demand for this, (b) maintaining a parallel implementation of @Configuration is not trivial and we have limited resources, and (c) with Spring Framework 3.2.0 CGLIB (3.0) is now repackaged and inlined within spring-core, meaning that the inconvenience/extra jars argument is moot.
