With Spring 4.3 you can easily get the injection point to create cool context dependent injections.
In this example I inject a correctly configured logger. So instead of writing something like

private final static Logger LOGGER = Logger.getLogger(MyLogger.class.getName()); 

I can simple inject it like:

Logger logger;

Note that with InjectionPoint you have access to even more meta-data like the annotations used on the injection-field, for example if you create your custom annotation you can make really customizable injections of beans.
