Status Quo

Utility methods in BeanFactoryAnnotationUtils, which was introduced in Spring 3.1.2, throw IllegalStateException; whereas, utility methods in the existing BeanFactoryUtils consistently throw specific subclasses of BeansException.

This inconsistency between BeanFactoryAnnotationUtils and BeanFactoryUtils makes it difficult to handle exceptions in a unified manner.

For example, it would be much more suitable for BeanFactoryAnnotationUtils.qualifiedBeanOfType() to throw a NoSuchBeanDefinitionException rather than an IllegalStateException.


  1. Refactor BeanFactoryAnnotationUtils to consistently throw specific subclasses of BeansException.

Affects: 3.1.2
