 * Base class for Spring-based EJB 2.x beans. Not intended for direct subclassing:
 * Extend {@link AbstractStatelessSessionBean}, {@link AbstractStatefulSessionBean}
 * or {@link AbstractMessageDrivenBean} instead.
 * <p>Provides a standard way of loading a Spring BeanFactory. Subclasses act as a
 * facade, with the business logic deferred to beans in the BeanFactory. Default
 * is to use a {@link org.springframework.context.access.ContextJndiBeanFactoryLocator},
 * which will initialize an XML ApplicationContext from the class path (based on a JNDI
 * name specified). For a different locator strategy, <code>setBeanFactoryLocator
 * may be called (<i>before your EJB's ejbCreate method is invoked,
 * e.g. in <code>setSessionContext). For use of a shared ApplicationContext between
 * multiple EJBs, where the container class loader setup supports this visibility, you may
 * instead use a {@link org.springframework.context.access.ContextSingletonBeanFactoryLocator}.
 * Alternatively, {@link #setBeanFactoryLocator} may be called with a custom implementation
 * of the {@link org.springframework.beans.factory.access.BeanFactoryLocator} interface.
 * <p>Note that we cannot use final for our implementation of EJB lifecycle
 * methods, as this would violate the EJB specification.
