public interface MessageSourceAware extends Aware
Interface to be implemented by any object that wishes to be notified of the MessageSource (typically the ApplicationContext) that it runs in.

Note that the MessageSource can usually also be passed in as a bean reference (via arbitrary bean properties or constructor arguments), because it is defined as a bean with name "messageSource" in the application context.
