At the moment I am unit testing my DAOs by manually constructing the sessionFactory and injecting it. I have been looking at the spring integration tests, but I cannot figure out how to manage the seperate contexts.
I *could* add all the component contexts and include the development-persistence.xml and *exclude* the applicationContext.xml, but there are other beans in appContext.
What do other people do? Do you have an aenmic appContext which just imports other context?
