Uses of Interface

Packages that use HierarchicalBeanFactory
org.springframework.beans.factory.config SPI interfaces and configuration-related convenience classes for bean factories. Classes supporting the org.springframework.beans.factory package.  
org.springframework.beans.factory.xml Contains an abstract XML-based BeanFactory implementation, including a standard "spring-beans" DTD.  
org.springframework.context This package builds on the beans package to add support for message sources and for the Observer design pattern, and the ability for application objects to obtain resources using a consistent API. Classes supporting the org.springframework.context package, such as abstract base classes for ApplicationContext implementations and a MessageSource implementation. 
org.springframework.web.context Contains the application context subinterface for web applications, and the ContextLoaderListener that bootstraps the root web application context. Classes supporting the org.springframework.web.context package, such as WebApplicationContext implementations, and a utility class for retrieval of the root application context etc. 

Uses of HierarchicalBeanFactory in org.springframework.beans.factory.config

Subinterfaces of HierarchicalBeanFactory in org.springframework.beans.factory.config
 interface ConfigurableBeanFactory
          Configuration interface to be implemented by most bean factories.
 interface ConfigurableListableBeanFactory
          Configuration interface to be implemented by most listable bean factories.

Uses of HierarchicalBeanFactory in

Classes in that implement HierarchicalBeanFactory
 class AbstractAutowireCapableBeanFactory
          Abstract BeanFactory superclass that implements default bean creation, with the full capabilities specified by the RootBeanDefinition class.
 class AbstractBeanFactory
          Abstract superclass for BeanFactory implementations, implementing the ConfigurableBeanFactory SPI interface.
 class DefaultListableBeanFactory
          Default implementation of the ListableBeanFactory and BeanDefinitionRegistry interfaces: a full-fledged bean factory based on bean definitions.

Uses of HierarchicalBeanFactory in org.springframework.beans.factory.xml

Classes in org.springframework.beans.factory.xml that implement HierarchicalBeanFactory
 class XmlBeanFactory
          Convenience extension of DefaultListableBeanFactory that reads bean definitions from an XML document.

Uses of HierarchicalBeanFactory in org.springframework.context

Subinterfaces of HierarchicalBeanFactory in org.springframework.context
 interface ApplicationContext
          Central interface to provide configuration for an application.
 interface ConfigurableApplicationContext
          SPI interface to be implemented by most if not all application contexts.

Uses of HierarchicalBeanFactory in

Classes in that implement HierarchicalBeanFactory
 class AbstractApplicationContext
          Abstract implementation of the ApplicationContext interface.
 class AbstractRefreshableApplicationContext
          Base class for ApplicationContext implementations that are supposed to support multiple refreshs, creating a new internal bean factory instance every time.
 class AbstractXmlApplicationContext
          Convenient abstract superclass for ApplicationContext implementations, drawing configuration from XML documents containing bean definitions understood by an XmlBeanDefinitionReader.
 class ClassPathXmlApplicationContext
          Standalone XML application context, taking the context definition files from the class path.
 class FileSystemXmlApplicationContext
          Standalone XML application context, taking the context definition files from the file system or from URLs.
 class GenericApplicationContext
          Generic ApplicationContext implementation that holds a single internal DefaultListableBeanFactory instance and does not assume a specific bean definition format.
 class StaticApplicationContext
          ApplicationContext that allows concrete registration of beans and messages in code, rather than from external configuration sources.

Uses of HierarchicalBeanFactory in org.springframework.web.context

Subinterfaces of HierarchicalBeanFactory in org.springframework.web.context
 interface ConfigurableWebApplicationContext
          Interface to be implemented by configurable web application contexts.
 interface WebApplicationContext
          Interface to provide configuration for a web application.

Uses of HierarchicalBeanFactory in

Classes in that implement HierarchicalBeanFactory
 class AbstractRefreshableWebApplicationContext
          AbstractRefreshableApplicationContext subclass that implements the ConfigurableWebApplicationContext interface for web environments.
 class StaticWebApplicationContext
          Static WebApplicationContext implementation for testing.
 class XmlWebApplicationContext
          WebApplicationContext implementation that takes configuration from an XML document, understood by an XmlBeanDefinitionReader.
