The sentence

To be used on @Configuration classes as follows, where MyAsyncBean is a user-defined type with one or more methods annotated with either Spring's @Async annotation ...
maybe understanding wrong.

For example, should I add @EnableAsync to all configuration classes that contain @Async beans? Is it possible to place @EnableAsync on one configuration and put the beans with @Async to another configuration?

Here is a quote from to Andy Wilkinson in gitter:

They can be in separate locations
@EnableAsync needs to go on a @Configuration class

I think that documentation could be improved.

Juergen Hoeller I gave that a try in ab232a5 - reconsidering things, I am not sure that the javadoc can be much improved but the split in two examples does not seem to hurt either.

Can you please review and backport it?
