So I'm writing some tests in JUnit and am just learning the Java Spring Framework. I have a private variable in my test with the @Autowired annotation, but in my test fails because the variable is null.

public class ServiceTest
   @Autowired private MyService m_MyService;

   public void testMyService()

Open in new window

So when I run the test, I get a NullPointerException on this line:

Open in new window

Any ideas? Thanks!
