Using Spring Beans

Hi all,


I'm fairly new to Activiti so apologies if this is basic.


I have a class implementing the JavaDelegate interface, but it also has an @Autowired bean inside it (it is a class annotated with @Service). I read that since I am autowiring, you can't specify it as an activiti:class inside the service task, you have to bind it using activiti:delegateExpression.


I have my implemented class as:

class MyDelegate implements JavaDelegate {
    MyCustomService myCustomService;



and I have defined the service task as:

<serviceTask id="servicetask1" name="Service Task 1" activiti:delegateExpression="${myDelegate}"></serviceTask>


However when I go to run the process, I get a runtime error saying:


org.activiti.engine.ActivitiException: Unknown property used in expression: ${myDelegate}


Is there something else I need to do?


If possible, I was hoping there was a solution that only used annotations rather than .xml bean definitions
