Loading context in Spring using web.xml

Is there a way that a context can be loaded using web.xml in a Spring MVC application?

You can then use the WebApplicationContext to get a handle on your beans.

WebApplicationContext ctx = WebApplicationContextUtils.getRequiredWebApplicationContext(servlet.getServletContext());
SomeBean someBean = (SomeBean) ctx.getBean("someBean");
