There's an @Autowired annotation on the instance variable "HelloBean hello" on this class, but yet no setHello(HelloBean hb) {} setter available. (The source code doesn't have it either.) How can Spring wire this object without a setter?

Re: Java 101 question on Listing 4.3's InvokeWithProcessorSpringRoute
I assume Spring inject the field directly, when there are no setters.
