As Johan mentioned, the normal ClasspathXMLContext usually works very well.  
Just create it with the config you want and start the context.   Things pop up 
quite easily.

Another option may be to look at the thing in the 
jax-rs  system tests.   It's quite interesting in that it doesn't startup 
context, it actually starts up a directory that looks like an exploded war.  
Thus, the web.xml and beans.xml and such that you would normally use would 
"just work".   If you look in systests/jaxrs/src/test/resources/, most of the 
directories you see there are "war" things for that test class.

The AegisJaxWsTest in the systests/databinding section uses a different 
approach.  It subclasses the  Spring AbstractJUnit4SpringContextTests class 
and provides the @ContextConfiguration annotation to configure the context it 
should start at startup.  

Hopefully something above will help.  :-)
