Spring Boot: @TestConfiguration Not Overriding Bean During Integration Test

I have a Bean defined in a class decorated with @Configuration:

@Configuration
public class MyBeanConfig {
@Bean
public String configPath() {
return "../production/environment/path";
}
}

I have a class decorated with @TestConfiguration that should override this Bean:

@TestConfiguration
public class MyTestConfiguration {
@Bean
@Primary
public String configPath() {
return "/test/environment/path";
}
}

The configPath bean is used to set the path to an external file containing a registration code that must be read during startup. It is used in an @Component class:

@Component
public class MyParsingComponent {
private String CONFIG_PATH;

@Autowired
public void setCONFIG_PATH(String configPath) {
this.CONFIG_PATH = configPath;
}
}

While trying to debug this I set a breakpoint inside each method as well as the constructor of the test config class. The @TestConfiguration‘s constructor breakpoint is hit, so i know that my test configuration class instantiates, however the configPath method of that class is never hit. Instead, the configPath method of the normal @Configuration class is hit and the @Autowired String in MyParsingComponent is always ../production/environment/path rather than the expected /test/environment/path.

Not sure why this is happening. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
