Spring Framework support total seven scopes, out of which five are available only if you use a web-aware ApplicationContext.

singleton

This is the default scope for any bean. It created a single object instance for a single bean definition per Spring IoC container.

prototype

Any number of object instances can be created for a single bean definition. Everytime we request a bean using getBean() method call on the IoC container, a new instance will be returned.

web-aware Beans Scopes are:

request

Each HTTP request will create its own instance of bean from a single bean definition.

session

Scopes a single bean definition to the lifecycle of an HTTP session.

globalSession

Scopes a single bean definition to the lifecycle of an global HTTP session. Only valid for Portlet context.

application

Scopes a single bean definition to the lifecycle of a ServletContext.

websocket

Scopes a single bean definition to the lifecycle of a WebSocket.
