SpringVaadinIntegration addon does not autowire fields in composite


I am building a maven project using the following add on

<dependency> <groupId>ru.xpoft.vaadin</groupId> <artifactId>spring-vaadin-integration</artifactId> <version>3.0.1</version> </dependency> Have the spring integration up and running but the custom component (composite) does not seem to autowire anything within a composite class

excerpt from root-context.xml

<context:component-scan base-package="com.xxx.xxxxx.xx"/>

I can autowire the composite class itself in the main UI class which leads me to believe the component scanning is working
Would appreciate some help - I know spring and can’t seem to figure this one out
