Getting error while using innerBean

I am making a simple program to test the inner bean but getting exception. Here is the code i have write.

TextEditor Class:

public class TextEditor {

private SpellChecker spellChecker;

public SpellChecker getSpellChecker() {
return spellChecker;
}

public void setSpellChecker(SpellChecker spellChecker) {
this.spellChecker = spellChecker;
}

public void spellCheck(){
spellChecker.spellChecking();
}
}


SpellChecker Class:

public class SpellChecker {

public SpellChecker() {
System.out.println("Spell Checker Constructor");
}

public void spellChecking(){
System.out.println("Spell Checking");
}
}


Controller Class:

public class Controller {

public static void main(String[] args) {
ApplicationContext context = new ClassPathXmlApplicationContext("spring.xml");
TextEditor editor = (TextEditor)context.getBean("editor");
editor.spellCheck();
}
}


spring.xml:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<beans xmlns="http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans"
xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
xsi:schemaLocation="http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans
http://www.springframework.org/schema/beans/spring-beans-3.0.xsd">

<bean id="editor" class="com.data.TextEditor">
<property name="spellChecker">
<bean id="spellChecker" name="com.data.SpellChecker"/>
</property>
</bean>
