Comments on applying the annotation Autowired to constructor are error,

* <p>Only one constructor (at max) of any given bean class may carry this annotation,
* indicating the constructor to autowire when used as a Spring bean. Such a
* constructor does not have to be public.

we can refer to the javadoc of class AutowiredAnnotationBeanPostProcessor for correct description.

* <p>Only one constructor (at max) of any given bean class may carry this
* annotation with the 'required' parameter set to {@code true},
* indicating <i>the</i> constructor to autowire when used as a Spring bean.
* If multiple <i>non-required</i> constructors carry the annotation, they
* will be considered as candidates for autowiring. The constructor with
* the greatest number of dependencies that can be satisfied by matching
* beans in the Spring container will be chosen. If none of the candidates
* can be satisfied, then a default constructor (if present) will be used.
* An annotated constructor does not have to be public.

Good catch! Addressed as part of a wider javadoc revision now.
