    When I try to define service activator as a chain element using namespace support, exception is raised. For example, the following definition does not work: {noformat} <int:chain input-channel="input"> <int:header-enricher> <int:header name="file_name" value="myfile.txt" /> </int:header-enricher> <file:outbound-channel-adapter id="fileWriter" directory="/tmp" /> </int:chain> {noformat} When I do the same using plain bean definition (not using namespaces), everything is fine: {noformat} <int:chain input-channel="input"> <int:header-enricher> <int:header name="file_name" value="myfile.txt" /> </int:header-enricher> <int:service-activator ref="fileWritingMessageHandler" method="handleMessage" /> </int:chain> <bean id="fileWritingMessageHandler" class="org.springframework.integration.file.FileWritingMessageHandler"> <constructor-arg value="/tmp" /> <property name="fileNameGenerator"> <bean class="org.springframework.integration.file.DefaultFileNameGenerator"> <property name="headerName" value="file_name" /> </bean> </property> <property name="outputChannel" ref="nullChannel" /> </bean> {noformat} Exactly the same situation is for other activators, for example int-event:outbound-channel-adapter. I've enclosed sample maven project reproducing this issue: try to run "FailingTest" and "WorkingTest".
