Deprecated. as of Spring 3.1 in favor of DefaultListableBeanFactory and XmlBeanDefinitionReader

@Deprecated
public class XmlBeanFactory
extends DefaultListableBeanFactory

Convenience extension of DefaultListableBeanFactory that reads bean definitions from an XML document. Delegates to XmlBeanDefinitionReader underneath; effectively equivalent to using an XmlBeanDefinitionReader with a DefaultListableBeanFactory.

The structure, element and attribute names of the required XML document are hard-coded in this class. (Of course a transform could be run if necessary to produce this format). "beans" doesn't need to be the root element of the XML document: This class will parse all bean definition elements in the XML file.

This class registers each bean definition with the DefaultListableBeanFactory superclass, and relies on the latter's implementation of the BeanFactory interface. It supports singletons, prototypes, and references to either of these kinds of bean. See "spring-beans-3.x.xsd" (or historically, "spring-beans-2.0.dtd") for details on options and configuration style.

For advanced needs, consider using a DefaultListableBeanFactory with an XmlBeanDefinitionReader. The latter allows for reading from multiple XML resources and is highly configurable in its actual XML parsing behavior.
