import com.x.pmo.dao.ProjectDAO;

public class Test {
private ApplicationContext ctx = null;
private Project project = null;
private ProjectDAO dao = null;
String path = "applicationContext.xml";

public static void main(String[] args) {

Test test = new Test();

public void test() {
ctx = new ClassPathXmlApplicationContext(path);
dao = (ProjectDAO) ctx.getBean("projectDAO");

project = new Project();
