All Implemented Interfaces:

public class FactoryBeanNotInitializedException
extends BeanCreationException

Exception thrown if a FactoryBean is not fully initialized, for example because it is involved in a circular reference. Usually indicated by the getObject method returning null.

A circular reference with a FactoryBean cannot be solved by eagerly caching singleton instances like with normal beans. The reason is that every FactoryBean needs to be fully initialized before it can return the created bean, while only specific normal beans need to be initialized - that is, if a collaborating bean actually invokes them on initialization instead of just storing the reference.
