Wiring lists and arrays in spring

I was reading folowing line and I did not understand clearly.
Wiring lists and arrays
When using Hibernate with Spring,
you willl wire a LocalSessionFactoryBean into the container. The LocalSession
FactoryBean has a mappingResources property that takes a List of Strings containing
the names of Hibernate mapping files. Here’s a snippet of XML that we will
introduce to the bean wiring file when we get around to talking about Hibernate:
<bean id="sessionFactory" class=
Although the previous snippet wires a List of String values, you are not limited
to using only <value>s as entries in a <list>. You may use any element that is
valid when wiring a singular property, including <value>, <ref>, or even another
collection such as <list>. The only limitation is in what your beans expectations
you can not wire in a List of Foos when your bean is expecting a List of Bars.
Any ideas, resources,sample code,links, highly appreciated. thanks in advance.
