So if you need to switch the persistence service provider (e.g., change from JDBC to Hibernate) for a Spring application, you will need to refactor your application code to use the new helper classes.
This could be more wrong, but I'm not sure how! We use Spring, and changed from JDBC to iBATIS without changing a single line of application code. We did have to change two lines of XML, though.
