Christopher Smith opened SPR-12876 and commented

I am using the ability to inject an InputStream from the classpath, a la

MyConstructor(@Value('classpath:foo.csv') InputStream csv)

It would be convenient to be able to work with the resource as a Reader instead of an InputStream, but Spring doesn't know how to translate the string value into a Reader. Would it be feasible to have the conversion system understand how to wrap an InputStreamReader around the injected resource?

Affects: 4.1.5

Referenced from: commits 2c637dc

I'd recommend using EncodedResource for that purpose, created from an injected Resource, but when you're ok with the default charset, injecting a Reader is alright too. Addressed for 4.2 now.
