Agile Software Testing With Spring Framework

Spring Framework has a great support for typical integration testing requirements of enterprise java applications.

We used this testing framework in a JEE project last year when I worked as the architect in the project. Using Spring Testing helped us a lot in not having to code the "mundane" tasks when using Spring, such as loading Spring Application Context, DI, Transaction Management in the test methods, JDBC helper methods to mention some.

I wrote an article (Software Testing With Spring Framework) on InfoQ about this support with a sample loan processing application.

With Spring getting more and more popular every day, are there any others who have used the test classes provided by Spring? If so, what has your experience been?
