Use Spring for JUnit testing


I have a java application and need to write up some Junit test cases.
My team wants to play around with the Spring framework.

Can not figure out if this can be doable without changing any code.
Of course we can create new classes but I am not sure if this is appropriate.

The java application does't use the Spring framework but wants to the use the Springframework for JUnit testing.

What do you think?.

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Sounds like overkill to me.  The idea of JUnit is to create tests that test a single piece of functionality.  There is little point in bringing spring in just to do unit testing.

I think I will just create one example using one dao by showing how to inject one of dao classes into that example class.
I am still not sure what exactly you want to achieve.
