public class StaticWebApplicationContext extends StaticApplicationContext implements ConfigurableWebApplicationContext, ThemeSource
Static WebApplicationContext implementation for testing. Not intended for use in production applications.

Implements the ConfigurableWebApplicationContext interface to allow for direct replacement of an XmlWebApplicationContext, despite not actually supporting external configuration files.

Interprets resource paths as servlet context resources, i.e. as paths beneath the web application root. Absolute paths, e.g. for files outside the web app root, can be accessed via "file:" URLs, as implemented by DefaultResourceLoader.

In addition to the special beans detected by AbstractApplicationContext, this class detects a bean of type ThemeSource in the context, under the special bean name "themeSource". Theme support is deprecated as of 6.0 with no direct replacement.
