Accordingly to

“ContextLoader isn’t really applicable to Spring Boot applications (or any with Servlet 3.0 dynamic initialization). Spring Boot does set up the ServletContext so that WebApplicationContextUtils can locate the web context. Your external artifacts really ought not to be using ContextLoader static methods since it makes assumptions about the way the app is deployed.”

I never tried “WebApplicationContextUtils” but it seems to work.

In my application, I implement a “ApplicationContextAware” that stores a static reference to the context:

public class ApplicationContextProvider implements ApplicationContextAware {
private static ApplicationContext CONTEXT;

public ApplicationContextProvider() {

public void setApplicationContext(ApplicationContext context) throws BeansException {
CONTEXT = context;

static ApplicationContext applicationContext() {
return CONTEXT;

Do you think that is way to solve it?
