All Implemented Interfaces:
Aware, ApplicationContextAware

@TestExecutionListeners(value={DependencyInjectionTestExecutionListener.class,DirtiesContextTestExecutionListener.class})
public abstract class AbstractJUnit4SpringContextTests
extends java.lang.Object
implements ApplicationContextAware

Abstract base test class which integrates the Spring TestContext Framework with explicit ApplicationContext testing support in a JUnit 4.5+ environment.

Concrete subclasses should typically declare a class-level @ContextConfiguration annotation to configure the application context resource locations. If your test does not need to load an application context, you may choose to omit the @ContextConfiguration declaration and to configure the appropriate TestExecutionListeners manually.

Note: this class serves only as a convenience for extension. If you do not wish for your test classes to be tied to a Spring-specific class hierarchy, you may configure your own custom test classes by using SpringJUnit4ClassRunner, @ContextConfiguration, @TestExecutionListeners, etc.
