The scope can be defined as a virtual space, situation or time line, under which a particular activity is valid or possible. In terms of Hybris, the scope is the time for which a bean is available for performing business logic.
In addition to Spring scopes, Hybris has defined below scopes.
1) Tenant : This is equivalent to singleton scope of spring. The only difference is that here Hybris limit the instance of bean in question to a particular tenant.
Hybris has deprecated this scope in version 5.0.
2) yrequest : This scope is equivalent to request scope. But this is used out side the web application context. It means that you can access these beans even in absence of a web application. These are basically used in back end processes, where we don’t want to expose our services on web, but still want to use them from outside of our project.
Once a session is invalidated, the scope ceases to exist, and instances are destroyed.
