public abstract class AbstractRefreshableWebApplicationContext
extends AbstractRefreshableConfigApplicationContext
implements ConfigurableWebApplicationContext, ThemeSource

AbstractRefreshableApplicationContext subclass which implements the ConfigurableWebApplicationContext interface for web environments. Provides a "configLocations" property, to be populated through the ConfigurableWebApplicationContext interface on web application startup.

This class is as easy to subclass as AbstractRefreshableApplicationContext: All you need to implements is the AbstractRefreshableApplicationContext.loadBeanDefinitions(org.springframework.beans.factory.support.DefaultListableBeanFactory) method; see the superclass javadoc for details. Note that implementations are supposed to load bean definitions from the files specified by the locations returned by the getConfigLocations() method.

Interprets resource paths as servlet context resources, i.e. as paths beneath the web application root. Absolute paths, e.g. for files outside the web app root, can be accessed via "file:" URLs, as implemented by DefaultResourceLoader.

In addition to the special beans detected by AbstractApplicationContext, this class detects a bean of type ThemeSource in the context, under the special bean name "themeSource".

This is the web context to be subclassed for a different bean definition format. Such a context implementation can be specified as "contextClass" context-param for ContextLoader or as "contextClass" init-param for FrameworkServlet, replacing the default XmlWebApplicationContext. It will then automatically receive the "contextConfigLocation" context-param or init-param, respectively.

Note that WebApplicationContext implementations are generally supposed to configure themselves based on the configuration received through the ConfigurableWebApplicationContext interface. In contrast, a standalone application context might allow for configuration in custom startup code (for example, GenericApplicationContext).

Constructor Detail

AbstractRefreshableWebApplicationContext

public AbstractRefreshableWebApplicationContext()
Method Detail

setServletContext

public void setServletContext(ServletContext servletContext)
Description copied from interface: ConfigurableWebApplicationContext
Set the ServletContext for this web application context.

Does not cause an initialization of the context: refresh needs to be called after the setting of all configuration properties.

Specified by:
setServletContext in interface ConfigurableWebApplicationContext
See Also:
ConfigurableApplicationContext.refresh()

getServletContext

public ServletContext getServletContext()
Description copied from interface: WebApplicationContext
Return the standard Servlet API ServletContext for this application.

Also available for a Portlet application, in addition to the PortletContext.

Specified by:
getServletContext in interface WebApplicationContext

setServletConfig

public void setServletConfig(ServletConfig servletConfig)
Description copied from interface: ConfigurableWebApplicationContext
Set the ServletConfig for this web application context. Only called for a WebApplicationContext that belongs to a specific Servlet.

Specified by:
setServletConfig in interface ConfigurableWebApplicationContext
See Also:
ConfigurableApplicationContext.refresh()

getServletConfig

public ServletConfig getServletConfig()
Description copied from interface: ConfigurableWebApplicationContext
Return the ServletConfig for this web application context, if any.

Specified by:
getServletConfig in interface ConfigurableWebApplicationContext

setNamespace

public void setNamespace(String namespace)
Description copied from interface: ConfigurableWebApplicationContext
Set the namespace for this web application context, to be used for building a default context config location. The root web application context does not have a namespace.

Specified by:
setNamespace in interface ConfigurableWebApplicationContext

getNamespace

public String getNamespace()
Description copied from interface: ConfigurableWebApplicationContext
Return the namespace for this web application context, if any.

Specified by:
getNamespace in interface ConfigurableWebApplicationContext

getConfigLocations

public String[] getConfigLocations()
Description copied from class: AbstractRefreshableConfigApplicationContext
Return an array of resource locations, referring to the XML bean definition files that this context should be built with. Can also include location patterns, which will get resolved via a ResourcePatternResolver.

The default implementation returns null. Subclasses can override this to provide a set of resource locations to load bean definitions from.

Specified by:
getConfigLocations in interface ConfigurableWebApplicationContext
Overrides:
getConfigLocations in class AbstractRefreshableConfigApplicationContext
Returns:
an array of resource locations, or null if none
See Also:
AbstractApplicationContext.getResources(java.lang.String), AbstractApplicationContext.getResourcePatternResolver()

postProcessBeanFactory

protected void postProcessBeanFactory(ConfigurableListableBeanFactory beanFactory)
Register request/session scopes, a ServletContextAwareProcessor, etc.

Overrides:
postProcessBeanFactory in class AbstractApplicationContext
Parameters:
beanFactory - the bean factory used by the application context

getResourceByPath

protected Resource getResourceByPath(String path)
This implementation supports file paths beneath the root of the ServletContext.

Overrides:
getResourceByPath in class DefaultResourceLoader
Parameters:
path - the path to the resource
Returns:
the corresponding Resource handle
See Also:
ServletContextResource

getResourcePatternResolver

protected ResourcePatternResolver getResourcePatternResolver()
This implementation supports pattern matching in unexpanded WARs too.

Overrides:
getResourcePatternResolver in class AbstractApplicationContext
Returns:
the ResourcePatternResolver for this context
See Also:
ServletContextResourcePatternResolver

onRefresh

protected void onRefresh()
Initialize the theme capability.

Overrides:
onRefresh in class AbstractApplicationContext
See Also:
AbstractApplicationContext.refresh()

getTheme

public Theme getTheme(String themeName)
Description copied from interface: ThemeSource
Return the Theme instance for the given theme name.

The returned Theme will resolve theme-specific messages, codes, file paths, etc (e.g. CSS and image files in a web environment).

Specified by:
getTheme in interface ThemeSource
Parameters:
themeName - the name of the theme
Returns:
the corresponding Theme, or null if none defined. Note that, by convention, a ThemeSource should at least be able to return a default Theme for the default theme name "theme" but may also return default Themes for other theme names.

AbstractThemeResolver.ORIGINAL_DEFAULT_THEME_NAME
