Exporter that takes Spring-defined objects and exposes them as
ServletContext attributes. Usually, bean references will be used
to export Spring-defined beans as ServletContext attributes.
Useful to make Spring-defined beans available to code that is

Client code can then use plain ServletContext attribute lookups
to access those objects, despite them being defined in a Spring
Alternatively, consider using the WebApplicationContextUtils
class to access Spring-defined beans via the WebApplicationContext
interface. This makes client code aware of Spring API, of course.
