      After getting one of our local developers configured to use the reloading DD, I saw a couple of simple tweaks we could make to simplify the process. Really it amounts to creating a parent bean for the dataDictionaryService in KNSSpringBeans.xml, and adding a new bean xml file to the rice-development-tools project with an overriding dataDictionaryService bean that adds the reloading DD constructor arg. With that in place, all that is required of client app devs to get this functionality is to add rice-development-tools as a dependency, and to add a single param to their rice config xml like this:

      <param name="rice.KR.additionalSpringFiles">classpath:org/kuali/rice/devtools/krad/datadictionary/ReloadingDataDictionarySpringBeans.xml</param>
