I am new to Spring. What I understand from dependency injection is that it is the way by which an object can be created by container. We don't need to use 'new' operator.

I am not getting the benefits of Depenedency Injection. I read that it hepls us in testing our code.

Can somebody please explain me how it helps in testing with the help of an example

Spring's dependency injection help programmer to follow OOPS concept. According to the OOPS concept the classes should be loosely coupled if they has dependency. For example class A has dependency on class B, then one has to create object of class B in class A using new operator. In future if someone changes the constructor of class B then it has to make changes in class A also because the constructor has been used in class A to make object of class B. In this scenario we can say that class A is tightly coupled with class B. Using dependency injection feature we does wiring of the bean using configuration file. So we only need to change configuration file instead of the code. I hope this would clarify you doubt.
