public abstract class AbstractTransactionalJUnit4SpringContextTests
extends AbstractJUnit4SpringContextTests

Abstract transactional extension of AbstractJUnit4SpringContextTests which adds convenience functionality for JDBC access. Expects a DataSource bean and a PlatformTransactionManager bean to be defined in the Spring application context.

This class exposes a SimpleJdbcTemplate and provides an easy way to count the number of rows in a table , delete from the database , and execute SQL scripts within a transaction.

Concrete subclasses must fulfill the same requirements outlined in AbstractJUnit4SpringContextTests.

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, @Transactional, etc.

Method Detail

public void setSqlScriptEncoding(java.lang.String sqlScriptEncoding)
Specify the encoding for SQL scripts, if different from the platform encoding.

executeSqlScript(java.lang.String, boolean)


protected int countRowsInTable(java.lang.String tableName)
Count the rows in the given table.

tableName - table name to count rows in
the number of rows in the table


protected int deleteFromTables(java.lang.String... names)
Convenience method for deleting all rows from the specified tables. Use with caution outside of a transaction!

names - the names of the tables from which to delete
the total number of rows deleted from all specified tables


protected void executeSqlScript(java.lang.String sqlResourcePath,
                                boolean continueOnError)
                         throws DataAccessException
Execute the given SQL script. Use with caution outside of a transaction!

The script will normally be loaded by classpath. There should be one statement per line. Any semicolons will be removed. Do not use this method to execute DDL if you expect rollback.

sqlResourcePath - the Spring resource path for the SQL script
continueOnError - whether or not to continue without throwing an exception in the event of an error
DataAccessException - if there is an error executing a statement and continueOnError was false
