ApplicationContext instances in Spring can be scoped. In the Web MVC framework, each DispatcherServlet has its own WebApplicationContext, which inherits all the beans already defined in the root WebApplicationContext. These inherited beans can be overridden in the servlet-specific scope, and you can define new scope-specific beans local to a given servlet instance.
My understanding is that both ApplicationContext and WebApplication context are the spring containers where WebApplicationContext is child of the ApplicationContext interface.
Abstract Factory Design Pattern provides an interface for creating families of related or dependent objects without specifying their concrete classes.

I am looking for some books which provides an in depth view of Applying Gang of Four design pattern. I know we have our favorite Head First series. But what I am looking at is an implementation to practical Software problems and how to apply these patterns individually or together to solve a specific problem example. How to design a real world sample application using GOF patterns etc? Please advise.
