import javax.servlet.ServletContext;

import org.springframework.beans.factory.FactoryBean;
import org.springframework.web.context.ServletContextAware;

 * Simple FactoryBean that 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.
 * <p>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.
