Subject Re: Testing with Spring + Struts 2 + TestNG
Date Fri, 11 Sep 2009 13:36:36 GMT
Here is an example -

@RunWith(SpringJUnit4ClassRunner.class)
@ContextConfiguration(locations={"classpath*:applicationContext-test.xml"})
public class SomeActionTest {

        @Autowired @Qualifier("dao")
        private MyAction myAction;

        public void testOne() {
...


The difference between applicationContext-test.xml and
applicationContext.xml is typically database settings, etc. For
complicated things like actions directly manipulating the request
object, I'll just setup some spring mocks.
