      Description

      If we allow annotations in HstComponent classes like Spring Framework's @Component, then we can probably allow any Spring AOP techniques without having to provide new interfaces like DoBeforeRenderExtension of Essentials.

      As a briefing:

      • Developers annotate HstComponent classes with an annotation (e.g, @Component).
      • Spring Framework application context loads @Component beans as 'prototype' beans since we need a separate HstComponent instance per HST component configuration even if the hst component classname is the same.
      • Then HST Component Factory always get a reference of the HstComponent bean managed by Spring Framework ApplicationContexts (of HST ComponentManager).
        HST Component Factory can be backward-compatible for non-annotated component classes in this approach. It can load it from the HST Component Manager first, for instance.
      • developers can use Spring AOP techniques.

      One advantage here is developers can control in any granularity with the point cut configuration.
