Hi,

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.

Example:
public class ServiceTest
{
   @Autowired private MyService m_MyService;

   @Test
   public void testMyService()
   {
      assertTrue(m_MyService.doWork());
   }
}
So when I run the test, I get a NullPointerException on this line:
assertTrue(m_MyService.doWork());

Any ideas? Thanks!
