Starting of Spring context in web application

Using Spring in a web application, we need to load the context when the application starts. Fortunately, it can be done in a simple way, by adding the right listener in the application web.xml.

Using Maven, you need to add the Spring-web dependency in your pom.xml:

<dependency>
  <groupId>org.springframework</groupId>
  <artifactId>spring-web</artifactId>
  <version>4.0.0.RELEASE</version>
  <scope>compile</scope>
</dependency>

And in the web.xml:

<listener>
    <listener-class>org.springframework.web.context.ContextLoaderListener</listener-class>
</listener>
