public class HomeController {
public static final int DEFAULT_SPITTLES_PER_PAGE = 25;
private SpitterService spitterService;
public HomeController(SpitterService spitterService) {
this.spitterService = spitterService;

Could the @Inject annotation have been specified on the private instance variable:

private SpitterService spitterService;

And drop the Contructor as a zero-lenth contructor is created automatically

2) Does the @Controller annotation give anything above and beyond the @Component annotation like @Repository?

3) Mockito

Suppose I had defined @Autowired on the private variable in HomeController:
private SpitterService spitterService;

public HomeController(){}

How would I mock the SpitterService in HomeControllerTest and inject it into the HomeController?
