Hey All,

I have created a Spring-Web-MVC-Test using the below Annotations



 When I run the test locally it compiles and build the .war file with no issues.

I tried running the similar test inside the docker image using the .yml file so to automate regression testing of our unit-tests. But I see a failed to load "Application Context" error.

java.lang.IllegalStateException: Failed to load ApplicationContext

Any help will be appreciated.

Hi @Terence, could you please provide some more details about what you are trying to do and how this relates to Atlassian?

I do have the same error, but with the new @WebMvcTest annotation. Posted this on SO:

Switching to your annotation version (which should work as well as per the docs), does not change anything. Seeing that my tests run fine locally, I think it may have something to do with the fact that pipelines run in a Docker container. If so, how does one configure that correctly?
