@Deprecated public class ServletContextFactoryBean extends Object implements FactoryBean<ServletContext>, ServletContextAware
FactoryBeanthat exposes the ServletContext for bean references. Can be used as alternative to implementing the ServletContextAware callback interface. Allows for passing the ServletContext reference to a constructor argument or any custom bean property.
Note that there's a special FactoryBean for exposing a specific ServletContext attribute, named ServletContextAttributeFactoryBean. So if all you need from the ServletContext is access to a specific attribute, ServletContextAttributeFactoryBean allows you to expose a constructor argument or bean property of the attribute type, which is a preferable to a dependency on the full ServletContext.

nullif not known in advance.
This allows one to check for specific types of beans without instantiating objects, for example on autowiring.
In the case of implementations that are creating a singleton object, this method should try to avoid singleton creation as far as possible; it should rather estimate the type in advance. For prototypes, returning a meaningful type here is advisable too.
This method can be called before this FactoryBean has been fully initialized. It must not rely on state created during initialization; of course, it can still use such state if available.
NOTE: Autowiring will simply ignore FactoryBeans that return
null here. Therefore it is highly recommended to implement
this method properly, using the current state of the FactoryBean.

public boolean isSingleton()
FactoryBean.getObject()always return the same object (a reference that can be cached)?
NOTE: If a FactoryBean indicates to hold a singleton object,
the object returned from
getObject() might get cached
by the owning BeanFactory. Hence, do not return
unless the FactoryBean always exposes the same reference.
The singleton status of the FactoryBean itself will generally be provided by the owning BeanFactory; usually, it has to be defined as singleton there.

necessarily indicate that returned objects are independent instances.
An implementation of the extended

implementations which do not implement this extended interface are
simply assumed to always return independent instances if the
