Autowire MongoRepository in Spring MVC

I want to Autowire MongoRepository into my service class, and I'm not able to do this. I'm using java config.
This is my repository class:

public interface UserRepository extends MongoRepository<User, String> {

public User findByFirstName(String firstName);
public List<User> findByLastName(String lastName);


This is the Service which uses UserRepository:

public class TestService {

private UserRepository repository;

public void save(User user) {;

This is part of my Controller which uses service:

public class TestController {

private TestService service;

My main java config class looks like this:

@Import({MjurAppConfig.class, MongoConfiguration.class})
public class MjurWebAppConfig extends WebMvcConfigurerAdapter {


@ComponentScan({"prv.makro.mjur.dao", "prv.makro.mjur.repository"})
public class MjurAppConfig {

public User getUser() {
return new User();

public TestService getTestService() {
return new TestService();

And mongo config:

public class MongoConfiguration {

public MongoFactoryBean mongo() {
MongoFactoryBean mongo = new MongoFactoryBean();
return mongo;

public MongoTemplate mongoTemplate() throws Exception{
return new MongoTemplate(mongo().getObject(),"mjur");


Caused by: org.springframework.beans.factory.BeanCreationException: Could not autowire field: private prv.makro.mjur.repository.UserRepository
prv.makro.mjur.service.impl.FirstService.repository; nested exception is org.springframework.beans.factory.NoSuchBeanDefinitionException:
No qualifying bean of type [prv.makro.mjur.repository.UserRepository] found for dependency: expected at least 1 bean which qualifies as autowire candidate for this dependency.
Dependency annotations: {@org.springframework.beans.factory.annotation.Autowired(required=true)}

I was searching for resolution for this problem but I couldn't find anything.
IMO Component scan should find the repository and it should bind it to spring context. Sadly it's not working like that.

Ok, the problem was with @EnableMongoRepositories annotation.

When I have added package name to it's body (so it looked like: @EnableMongoRepositories({"prv.makro.mjur.repository"}) ) I was able to autowire my UserRepository
