Wiring up stuff from a main() method

We're using @ExecutorProxy annotation to get access to our space-side services, but I was wondering how to programmatically inject these fields when not running inside a PU but when you have a little utility that's called from a main() class or, say, a servlet deployed someplace else than in a GS servlet container?

Hi Cees

Here's an example:

IJSpace space = new UrlSpaceConfigurer("jini:////space").space();
GigaSpace gigaSpace = new GigaSpaceConfigurer(space).gigaSpace();
IDataProcessor dataProcessor = new ExecutorRemotingProxyConfigurer<IDataProcessor>(gigaSpace, IDataProcessor.class).proxy();

Note that most documentation pages for OpenSpaces components have a "Code" tab that shows how to configure them in plain Java.

Thanks Uri - but I was aware of that snippet (and your blog post ;-)).

However, if I'm doing this and then start using classes that have @ExecutorProxy annotations, will they be properly be injected with the respective proxies?

(might be a stupid question, but consider me a Spring n00b...)

For the annotation to be processed, you need to start a Spring context (or process it manually which doesn't make a lot of sense).
If you start a Spring context from your main method you can retrieve the bean which uses the proxy based on its ID, e.g.:
ApplicationContext context = new ClassPathXmlApplicationContext("META-INF/pu.xml");
MyBean bean = (MyBean)context.getBean("myBean");

If you use a web application you can automatically start the context from within the web application - http://static.springframework.org/spring/docs/2.5.x/reference/beans.html#context-create
I'd recommend using Spring MVC controllers you can inject proxies to your web component.
You can see how this is done in our petclinic port: http://www.openspaces.org/display/DAE/GigaSpacesPetClinic
