Unit Testing Spring apps with @RunWith(SpringJUnit4ClassRunner.class)

The Problem

I love Spring, who doesn’t?

One thing however that I found, until recently, a bit awkward was Unit Testing objects which were constructed and initiated via the Spring context and injected into other objects that consumed them. I have seen and used many and varied “bespoke” ways to do this, none of which I found satisfying.

This was until a collegue introduced me to the wonder that is SpringJUnit4ClassRunner. I know, I know, I should have been aware of this ages ago but as they say on millionaire “it’s easy if you know the answer”!
