public PortletApplicationContextUtils()
Method Detail

getWebApplicationContext

public static ApplicationContext getWebApplicationContext(javax.portlet.PortletContext pc)
Find the root WebApplicationContext for this portlet application, which is typically loaded via ContextLoaderListener or ContextLoaderServlet.

Will rethrow an exception that happened on root context startup, to differentiate between a failed context startup and no context at all.

Parameters:
pc - PortletContext to find the web application context for
Returns:
the root WebApplicationContext for this web app, or null if none (typed to ApplicationContext to avoid a Servlet API dependency; can usually be casted to WebApplicationContext, but there shouldn't be a need to)
See Also:
WebApplicationContext.ROOT_WEB_APPLICATION_CONTEXT_ATTRIBUTE

getRequiredWebApplicationContext

public static ApplicationContext getRequiredWebApplicationContext(javax.portlet.PortletContext pc)
                                                           throws java.lang.IllegalStateException
Find the root WebApplicationContext for this portlet application, which is typically loaded via ContextLoaderListener or ContextLoaderServlet.

Will rethrow an exception that happened on root context startup, to differentiate between a failed context startup and no context at all.

Parameters:
pc - PortletContext to find the web application context for
Returns:
the root WebApplicationContext for this web app (typed to ApplicationContext to avoid a Servlet API dependency; can usually be casted to WebApplicationContext, but there shouldn't be a need to)
Throws:
java.lang.IllegalStateException - if the root WebApplicationContext could not be found

initPortletPropertySources

public static void initPortletPropertySources(MutablePropertySources propertySources,
                                              javax.servlet.ServletContext servletContext,
                                              javax.portlet.PortletContext portletContext,
                                              javax.portlet.PortletConfig portletConfig)
Replace Servlet- and Portlet-based stub property sources with actual instances populated with the given context and config objects.
