Java Spring with Hibernate Data-Driven Application Design Add a DAO

Spring Hibernate quiz problem

Both tests are failed and I can't find what is wrong. Exception is about that Spring couldn't find bean for autowiring.

com/teamtreehouse/contactmgr/dao/ContactDao.java
package com.teamtreehouse.contactmgr.dao;

import com.teamtreehouse.contactmgr.model.Contact;

import java.util.List;

public interface ContactDao {
  List<Contact> findAll();
}
com/teamtreehouse/contactmgr/dao/ContactDaoImpl.java
package com.teamtreehouse.contactmgr.dao;

import com.teamtreehouse.contactmgr.model.Contact;
import org.hibernate.Session;
import org.hibernate.SessionFactory;
import org.springframework.beans.factory.annotation.Autowired;
import org.springframework.stereotype.Repository;

import java.util.List;

@Repository
public class ContactDaoImpl implements ContactDao {

    @Autowired
    private SessionFactory sessionFactory;

    @Override
    public List<Contact> findAll() {
      Session session = sessionFactory.openSession();
      List<Contact> contacts = session.createCriteria(Contact.class).list();
      session.close();
      return contacts;
    }
}

Part of stacktrace:

I figured out what was the problem - obviously my code was correct, but, intention of quiz was not to test implementation of method. As a matter of fact, in task description there was said that for now it is OK that method return null. Everything is working now when I removed implementation of method, autowired SessionFactory and just return null. Mine stupid mistake :)
