Interface for registries that hold bean definitions, for example RootBeanDefinition
and ChildBeanDefinition instances. Typically implemented by BeanFactories that
internally work with the AbstractBeanDefinition hierarchy.
This is the only interface in Spring's bean factory packages that encapsulates
registration of bean definitions. The standard BeanFactory interfaces
only cover access to a fully configured factory instance.
Spring's bean definition readers expect to work on an implementation of this
interface. Known implementors within the Spring core are DefaultListableBeanFactory
