Spring Testing Book or Tutorial

I'm seeking a good book and/or tutorial on unit testing for Spring Controllers/Views. Some books will discuss testing but then give you very simplistic examples that you couldn't use in a real project. I guess a focus I'd like to see a focus on a strategy for interacting with other application layers, such as mock objects you're accessing from the database/hibernate layer. How do I get at the request, response, and session, etc to test whether certain objects or values are present.

Good testing techniques aren't specific to Spring. Either you are unit testing (in which case the technology doesn't matter) or integration testing through a UI (in which case the browser is the technology.)

"Test Driven" is an excellent read with non trivial examples in both spaces.
