public abstract class AbstractApplicationContext extends DefaultResourceLoader implements ConfigurableApplicationContext
Abstract implementation of the ApplicationContext interface. Doesn't mandate the type of storage used for configuration; simply implements common context functionality. Uses the Template Method design pattern, requiring concrete subclasses to implement abstract methods.

In contrast to a plain BeanFactory, an ApplicationContext is supposed to detect special beans defined in its internal bean factory: Therefore, this class automatically registers BeanFactoryPostProcessors, BeanPostProcessors, and ApplicationListeners which are defined as beans in the context.

A MessageSource may also be supplied as a bean in the context, with the name "messageSource"; otherwise, message resolution is delegated to the parent context. Furthermore, a multicaster for application events can be supplied as an "applicationEventMulticaster" bean of type ApplicationEventMulticaster in the context; otherwise, a default multicaster of type SimpleApplicationEventMulticaster will be used.

Implements resource loading by extending DefaultResourceLoader. Consequently treats non-URL resource paths as class path resources (supporting full class path resource names that include the package path, e.g. "mypackage/myresource.dat"), unless the DefaultResourceLoader.getResourceByPath(java.lang.String) method is overridden in a subclass.

      public void refresh() throws BeansException, IllegalStateException
      Description copied from interface: ConfigurableApplicationContext
      Load or refresh the persistent representation of the configuration, which might be from Java-based configuration, an XML file, a properties file, a relational database schema, or some other format.

      As this is a startup method, it should destroy already created singletons if it fails, to avoid dangling resources. In other words, after invocation of this method, either all or no singletons at all should be instantiated.

      Specified by:
      refresh in interface ConfigurableApplicationContext
      Throws:
      BeansException - if the bean factory could not be initialized

      4.2
      See Also:
    • registerShutdownHook

      public void registerShutdownHook()
      Register a shutdown hook named SpringContextShutdownHook with the JVM runtime, closing this context on JVM shutdown unless it has already been closed at that time.

      Delegates to doClose() for the actual closing procedure.

      Specified by:
      registerShutdownHook in interface ConfigurableApplicationContext
      See Also:
    • close

      public void close()
      Close this application context, destroying all beans in its bean factory.

      Delegates to doClose() for the actual closing procedure. Also removes a JVM shutdown hook, if registered, as it's not needed anymore.

      Specified by:
      close in interface AutoCloseable
      Specified by:
      close in interface Closeable
      Specified by:
      close in interface ConfigurableApplicationContext
      See Also:
    • doClose

      protected void doClose()
      Actually performs context closing: publishes a ContextClosedEvent and destroys the singletons in the bean factory of this application context.

      Called by both close() and a JVM shutdown hook, if any.

      See Also:
    • destroyBeans

      protected void destroyBeans()
      Template method for destroying all beans that this context manages. The default implementation destroy all cached singletons in this context, invoking DisposableBean.destroy() and/or the specified "destroy-method".

      Can be overridden to add context-specific bean destruction steps right before or right after standard singleton destruction, while the context's BeanFactory is still active.

      See Also:
    • onClose

      protected void onClose()
      Template method which can be overridden to add context-specific shutdown work. The default implementation is empty.

      Called at the end of doClose()'s shutdown procedure, after this context's BeanFactory has been closed. If custom shutdown logic needs to execute while the BeanFactory is still active, override the destroyBeans() method instead.

    • isActive

      public boolean isActive()
      Description copied from interface: ConfigurableApplicationContext
      Determine whether this application context is active, that is, whether it has been refreshed at least once and has not been closed yet.
      Specified by:
      isActive in interface ConfigurableApplicationContext
      Returns:
      whether the context is still active
      See Also:
    • assertBeanFactoryActive

      protected void assertBeanFactoryActive()
      Assert that this context's BeanFactory is currently active, throwing an IllegalStateException if it isn't.

      Invoked by all BeanFactory delegation methods that depend on an active context, i.e. in particular all bean accessor methods.

      The default implementation checks the 'active' status of this context overall. May be overridden for more specific checks, or for a no-op if getBeanFactory() itself throws an exception in such a case.

    • getBean

      public Object getBean(String name) throws BeansException
      Description copied from interface: BeanFactory
      Return an instance, which may be shared or independent, of the specified bean.

      This method allows a Spring BeanFactory to be used as a replacement for the Singleton or Prototype design pattern. Callers may retain references to returned objects in the case of Singleton beans.

      Translates aliases back to the corresponding canonical bean name.

      Will ask the parent factory if the bean cannot be found in this factory instance.

      Specified by:
      getBean in interface BeanFactory
      Parameters:
      name - the name of the bean to retrieve
      Returns:
      an instance of the bean
      Throws:
      NoSuchBeanDefinitionException - if there is no bean with the specified name
      BeansException - if the bean could not be obtained
    • getBean

      public <T> T getBean(String name, Class<T> requiredType) throws BeansException
      Description copied from interface: BeanFactory
      Return an instance, which may be shared or independent, of the specified bean.

      Behaves the same as BeanFactory.getBean(String), but provides a measure of type safety by throwing a BeanNotOfRequiredTypeException if the bean is not of the required type. This means that ClassCastException can't be thrown on casting the result correctly, as can happen with BeanFactory.getBean(String).

      Translates aliases back to the corresponding canonical bean name.

      Will ask the parent factory if the bean cannot be found in this factory instance.

      Specified by:
      getBean in interface BeanFactory
      Parameters:
      name - the name of the bean to retrieve
      requiredType - type the bean must match; can be an interface or superclass
      Returns:
      an instance of the bean
      Throws:
      NoSuchBeanDefinitionException - if there is no such bean definition
      BeanNotOfRequiredTypeException - if the bean is not of the required type
      BeansException - if the bean could not be created
    • getBean

      public Object getBean(String name, Object... args) throws BeansException
      Description copied from interface: BeanFactory
      Return an instance, which may be shared or independent, of the specified bean.

      Allows for specifying explicit constructor arguments / factory method arguments, overriding the specified default arguments (if any) in the bean definition.

      Specified by:
      getBean in interface BeanFactory
      Parameters:
      name - the name of the bean to retrieve
      args - arguments to use when creating a bean instance using explicit arguments (only applied when creating a new instance as opposed to retrieving an existing one)
      Returns:
      an instance of the bean
      Throws:
      NoSuchBeanDefinitionException - if there is no such bean definition
      BeanDefinitionStoreException - if arguments have been given but the affected bean isn't a prototype
      BeansException - if the bean could not be created
    • getBean

      public <T> T getBean(Class<T> requiredType) throws BeansException
      Description copied from interface: BeanFactory
      Return the bean instance that uniquely matches the given object type, if any.

      This method goes into ListableBeanFactory by-type lookup territory but may also be translated into a conventional by-name lookup based on the name of the given type. For more extensive retrieval operations across sets of beans, use ListableBeanFactory and/or BeanFactoryUtils.

      Specified by:
      getBean in interface BeanFactory
      Parameters:
      requiredType - type the bean must match; can be an interface or superclass
      Returns:
      an instance of the single bean matching the required type

      public <T> T getBean(Class<T> requiredType, Object... args) throws BeansException
      Description copied from interface: BeanFactory
      Return an instance, which may be shared or independent, of the specified bean.

      Allows for specifying explicit constructor arguments / factory method arguments, overriding the specified default arguments (if any) in the bean definition.

      This method goes into ListableBeanFactory by-type lookup territory but may also be translated into a conventional by-name lookup based on the name of the given type. For more extensive retrieval operations across sets of beans, use ListableBeanFactory and/or BeanFactoryUtils.

      Specified by:
      getBean in interface BeanFactory
      Parameters:
      requiredType - type the bean must match; can be an interface or superclass

      an instance of the bean
      Throws:
      NoSuchBeanDefinitionException - if there is no such bean definition

    • getBeanProvider

      public <T> ObjectProvider<T> getBeanProvider(Class<T> requiredType)
      Description copied from interface: BeanFactory
      Return a provider for the specified bean, allowing for lazy on-demand retrieval of instances, including availability and uniqueness options.

      For matching a generic type, consider BeanFactory.getBeanProvider(ResolvableType).

      Specified by:
      getBeanProvider in interface BeanFactory
      Parameters:
      requiredType - type the bean must match; can be an interface or superclass
      Returns:
      a corresponding provider handle
      See Also:
    • getBeanProvider

      public <T> ObjectProvider<T> getBeanProvider(ResolvableType requiredType)
      Description copied from interface: BeanFactory
      Return a provider for the specified bean, allowing for lazy on-demand retrieval of instances, including availability and uniqueness options. This variant allows for specifying a generic type to match, similar to reflective injection points with generic type declarations in method/constructor parameters.

      Note that collections of beans are not supported here, in contrast to reflective injection points. For programmatically retrieving a list of beans matching a specific type, specify the actual bean type as an argument here and subsequently use ObjectProvider.orderedStream() or its lazy streaming/iteration options.

      Also, generics matching is strict here, as per the Java assignment rules. For lenient fallback matching with unchecked semantics (similar to the ┬┤unchecked┬┤ Java compiler warning), consider calling BeanFactory.getBeanProvider(Class) with the raw type as a second step if no full generic match is available with this variant.

      Specified by:
      getBeanProvider in interface BeanFactory
      Parameters:
      requiredType - type the bean must match; can be a generic type declaration
      Returns:
      a corresponding provider handle

    • containsBean

      public boolean containsBean(String name)
      Description copied from interface: BeanFactory
      Does this bean factory contain a bean definition or externally registered singleton instance with the given name?

      If the given name is an alias, it will be translated back to the corresponding canonical bean name.

      If this factory is hierarchical, will ask any parent factory if the bean cannot be found in this factory instance.

      If a bean definition or singleton instance matching the given name is found, this method will return true whether the named bean definition is concrete or abstract, lazy or eager, in scope or not. Therefore, note that a true return value from this method does not necessarily indicate that BeanFactory.getBean(java.lang.String) will be able to obtain an instance for the same name.

      Specified by:
      containsBean in interface BeanFactory
      Parameters:
      name - the name of the bean to query
      Returns:
      whether a bean with the given name is present
    • isSingleton

      public boolean isSingleton(String name) throws NoSuchBeanDefinitionException
      Description copied from interface: BeanFactory
      Is this bean a shared singleton? That is, will BeanFactory.getBean(java.lang.String) always return the same instance?

      Note: This method returning false does not clearly indicate independent instances. It indicates non-singleton instances, which may correspond to a scoped bean as well. Use the BeanFactory.isPrototype(java.lang.String) operation to explicitly check for independent instances.

      Translates aliases back to the corresponding canonical bean name.

      Will ask the parent factory if the bean cannot be found in this factory instance.

      Specified by:
      isSingleton in interface BeanFactory
      Parameters:
      name - the name of the bean to query
      Returns:
      whether this bean corresponds to a singleton instance
      Throws:
      NoSuchBeanDefinitionException - if there is no bean with the given name
      See Also:
    • isPrototype

      public boolean isPrototype(String name) throws NoSuchBeanDefinitionException
      Description copied from interface: BeanFactory
      Is this bean a prototype? That is, will BeanFactory.getBean(java.lang.String) always return independent instances?

      Note: This method returning false does not clearly indicate a singleton object. It indicates non-independent instances, which may correspond to a scoped bean as well. Use the BeanFactory.isSingleton(java.lang.String) operation to explicitly check for a shared singleton instance.

      Translates aliases back to the corresponding canonical bean name.

      Will ask the parent factory if the bean cannot be found in this factory instance.

      Specified by:
      isPrototype in interface BeanFactory

      Description copied from interface: ListableBeanFactory
      Return the names of beans matching the given type (including subclasses), judging from either bean definitions or the value of getObjectType in the case of FactoryBeans.

      NOTE: This method introspects top-level beans only. It does not check nested beans which might match the specified type as well.

      Does consider objects created by FactoryBeans, which means that FactoryBeans will get initialized. If the object created by the FactoryBean doesn't match, the raw FactoryBean itself will be matched against the type.

      Does not consider any hierarchy this factory may participate in. Use BeanFactoryUtils' beanNamesForTypeIncludingAncestors to include beans in ancestor factories too.

      Note: Does not ignore singleton beans that have been registered by other means than bean definitions.

      This version of getBeanNamesForType matches all kinds of beans, be it singletons, prototypes, or FactoryBeans. In most implementations, the result will be the same as for getBeanNamesForType(type, true, true).

      Bean names returned by this method should always return bean names in the order of definition in the backend configuration, as far as possible.

      Specified by:
      getBeanNamesForType in interface ListableBeanFactory
      Parameters:
      type - the generically typed class or interface to match

      Start this component.

      Should not throw an exception if the component is already running.

      In the case of a container, this will propagate the start signal to all components that apply.

      Specified by:
      start in interface Lifecycle

    • stop

      public void stop()
      Description copied from interface: Lifecycle
      Stop this component, typically in a synchronous fashion, such that the component is fully stopped upon return of this method. Consider implementing SmartLifecycle and its stop(Runnable) variant when asynchronous stop behavior is necessary.

      Note that this stop notification is not guaranteed to come before destruction: On regular shutdown, Lifecycle beans will first receive a stop notification before the general destruction callbacks are being propagated; however, on hot refresh during a context's lifetime or on aborted refresh attempts, a given bean's destroy method will be called without any consideration of stop signals upfront.

      Should not throw an exception if the component is not running (not started yet).

      In the case of a container, this will propagate the stop signal to all components that apply.

      Specified by:
      stop in interface Lifecycle

    • isRunning

      public boolean isRunning()
      Description copied from interface: Lifecycle
      Check whether this component is currently running.

      In the case of a container, this will return true only if all components that apply are currently running.

      Specified by:
      isRunning in interface Lifecycle
      Returns:
      whether the component is currently running
    • refreshBeanFactory

      protected abstract void refreshBeanFactory() throws BeansException, IllegalStateException
      Subclasses must implement this method to perform the actual configuration load. The method is invoked by refresh() before any other initialization work.

      A subclass will either create a new bean factory and hold a reference to it, or return a single BeanFactory instance that it holds. In the latter case, it will usually throw an IllegalStateException if refreshing the context more than once.

      Throws:
      BeansException - if initialization of the bean factory failed
      IllegalStateException - if already initialized and multiple refresh attempts are not supported
    • closeBeanFactory

      protected abstract void closeBeanFactory()
      Subclasses must implement this method to release their internal bean factory. This method gets invoked by close() after all other shutdown work.

      Should never throw an exception but rather log shutdown failures.

    • getBeanFactory

      public abstract ConfigurableListableBeanFactory getBeanFactory() throws IllegalStateException
      Subclasses must return their internal bean factory here. They should implement the lookup efficiently, so that it can be called repeatedly without a performance penalty.

      Note: Subclasses should check whether the context is still active before returning the internal bean factory. The internal factory should generally be considered unavailable once the context has been closed.

      Specified by:
      getBeanFactory in interface ConfigurableApplicationContext
      Returns:
      this application context's internal bean factory (never null)
      Throws:
      IllegalStateException - if the context does not hold an internal bean factory yet (usually if refresh() has never been called) or if the context has been closed already

      public String toString()
      Return information about this context.
