From the mailing list thread:
I'm using StrutsSpringTestCase for some under-the-skin tests.
However, I felt the need to set up my database for a test. My tests that need the database extend from AbstractTransactionalJUnit4SpringContextTests, which makes them transactional.
I therefore created a StrutsSpringTransactionalTestCase that merges the behaviour of both StrutsSpringTestCase and AbstractTransactionalJUnit4SpringContextTests. I currently just copy-pasted the relevant information from AbstractTransactionalJUnit4SpringContextTests.
I'd like you to take a look at it and comment on whether it makes sense to include this in Struts. If so, feel free to use my contribution.
