I like this book! April 20 2008
By Mac - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book is perfect for me. I've suffered through heavyweight J2EE projects in years past, worked extensively on Struts servlet-only apps, and spent the last year building a Ruby/Rails application. Now I gotta ramp up for a Spring project and I need a book tailored to getting me started in Spring quickly. This book does that.

The focus is on getting an experienced developer up and running in Spring. I know I can backfill knowledge of Spring internals later with one of those 700 page books. I like that in addition to developing with Spring it ties in most of the nuts and bolts of project development - unit testing, build management, and Spring-specific eclipse IDE navigation.

There's a couple of niggly problems getting set up with maven, a resource location, and a .jpg file, but by simply going to the book's forum on wrox I had that all resolved in less than 15 minutes.

Excellent resource even for non-beginners March 3 2008

Format: Paperback
Before reading I have made use of the Spring Framework (others did initial configuration) but never fully understood how it worked. This book helped explain features I did not fully understand and reinforced concepts I was familiar with. My current project utilizes Spring and this book jump-started our use of Ajax, DAOs, and Web Services. Easy-to-understand language and very readable.

Could Have Been A Good Book April 26 2008
By Robert Skorskovic - Published on
Format: Paperback
I feel this book could have been good because the authors attempt a broad-sweeping introduction in a short and to-the-point manner. Sadly, however, I gave up on this book when I realized the authors/editors hadn't gone through and unit-tested each chapter's code and content for reasonable logical soundness from a pedagogical perspective. I ran into issues running simple tests because data tables were not created in the outlined setup process. More than just the issues with the code though, I felt from the onset that the authors did a poor job with the writing itself. These guys gloss over some concepts as if in haste to complete the book. The authors and editors, I feel, just did a poor job of creating an effective instructional instrument. To further its demise, the book's forum is poorly supported by the authors. There are barely any solutions to posted problems and the readers are struggling to help themselves one bug at a time with the poorly tested code and book instructions. I am of the frame of mind that learning a framework should be fun and interesting. The shoddy editorial work on this book makes learning painful and agonizingly annoying. Onto a better book for me...

This is a good book but some exercises are not very good explain so you must imagine what the autor want to say there, but if you are a novice in this framework, this book is very usefull.

The example doesn't work whatever you do and authors don't care!!!!!!!!!! Great work! If you can't do something right then don't do it. Another waste of money for buyers.
