This exposes the age-old problem of how to avoid passing around supporting dependencies around the application layers, but still having access to them, when and where they are required. Luckily this problem has already been solved for us in the form of dependency injection.

One of the most popular DI frameworks is Spring, and Hazelcast features complimentary support for this framework allowing us to configure our cluster in a way in keeping with it. To enable this support we need to add the hazelcast-spring...
