Unable to load Spring ApplicationContext in JUnit test

I have a junit test like so below: (running in eclipse 3.7 using maven)

@Configurable(autowire = Autowire.BY_NAME)
@RunWith(SpringJUnit4ClassRunner.class)
@ContextConfiguration(locations = {"file:C:/ProgramData/Eclipse/Projects_3.7.1/project/src/main/webapp/WEB-INF/mock-applicationContext.xml"})
public class DaoTest {
    @Autowired
    Dao dao;

    @Test
    public void simpleTest() {
       org.junit.Assert.assertNotNull(dao);
    }
}

when I attempt to execute the test (right click class name and run as Junit test), an exception is thrown which makes a reference to weblogic classes, which I don't really understand why that is happening.

I suspect that maybe the exception is thrown due to a misconfiguration in my pom.xml, but I'm not really sure. The project deploys to weblogic without a problem.

I've searched all over my mock-applicationContext.xml and referenced xml files (stored in src/main/webapp/WEB-INF), but there are no references to anything weblogic specific.

Any ideas on how to solve this problem or more debugging approaches to take?

The stack trace is below:

The problem seem that you have a META-INF/services/javax.xml.parsers.DocumentBuilderFactory in your classpath pointing to a WebLogic DocumentBuilderFactory implementation.

You can solve with:

  • Revert to default implementation:

    For example launch the test with -Djavax.xml.parsers.DocumentBuilderFactory=com.sun.org.apache.xerces.internal.jaxp.DocumentBuilderFactoryImpl or add a META-INF/services/javax.xml.parsers.DocumentBuilderFactory to the test classpath pointing to com.sun.org.apache.xerces.internal.jaxp.DocumentBuilderFactoryImpl

  • Add to classpath the jars that the weblogic implementation need.


Use wls-api.jar instead of weblogic.jar.
