Use preferences in Spring

Spring provides PreferencesPlaceholderConfigurer that can be used to load preferences.

<bean id="preferencePlaceHolder"
	<property name="userTreePath" value="com.myapp.preference.staticPreferenceLoader" />
<bean id="myEntity" class="info.dependencyInjection.spring.factory.MyEntity">
	<property name="value" value="${fruit}" />
