I'm starting to integrate Spring into one of my Struts applications. I'm using the Spring/Struts Plugin and used ActionSupport to extend my Struts action class. I wire the Service Bean in the application context xml file. From the struts action class i use the getWebApplicaitonContext() to get the bean. My problem is that in the Service Bean I need to get a DAO bean. Right now I'm just creating a new ApplicationContext to get the DAO bean. Is there a better way to do this then have to create a new ApplicaitonContext each time?

I just started with Spring, so be nice!

What you'll want to do is wire up the DAO and Service so that your DAO is injected into the Service via a setter method. A very simplistic example might be:

And your service class might look like:
