public class GenericXmlApplicationContext
extends GenericApplicationContext

Convenient application context with built-in XML support. This is a flexible alternative to ClassPathXmlApplicationContext and FileSystemXmlApplicationContext, to be configured via setters, with an eventual AbstractApplicationContext.refresh() call activating the context.

In case of multiple configuration files, bean definitions in later files will override those defined in earlier files. This can be leveraged to deliberately override certain bean definitions via an extra configuration file.
