From the Back Cover

Beginning Spring Framework 2

Developing server-side applications with Java Enterprise Edition can be complex and time consuming. The Spring Framework is designed from the ground up to make it easier than ever. With this book as your guide, you quickly learn how to use the latest features of Spring 2 and other open-source tools, such as JUnit, Ant, and Hibernate®, that can be downloaded for free on the web.

With this book you hit the ground running and work with a server-side Spring example within the first chapter. You become quickly familiarized with the technology pieces and the lingo of Spring 2 that facilitate creation of Java server applications. In each subsequent chapter, you explore in more depth afundamental area of Spring application design and development by walking through the steps involved in building a larger production-scale example.

What you will learn from this book

  • How to utilize the Spring 2 Framework and associated APIs in building your applications

  • How to implement core best practices including inversion of control, dependency injection, and aspect oriented programming

  • How to code and test POJO (Plain Old Java Object) centric design and development, enabling business logic

  • How to support data access to and from relational database servers using the Java Persistence API (JPA)

  • How to create maintainable Java server applications that decouple the user interface from the business logic by using Spring MVC

  • How to create applications that generate RSS for web syndication, and PDFs for portable reports

  • How to build Web Services interoperability features that enable your server applications to exchange data and information with Microsoft .NET based systems

  • How to improve system robustness by adding transactional support to Spring applications

Who this book is for
This book is for Java developers who want tobuild server-side applications utilizing the Spring Framework and associated open-sourcetools. Developers already working with existingJ2EE or Java EE servers will also find useful information on techniques in transitioning to the lightweight Spring Framework.

HASH(0x9b2ee15c) out of 5 stars I like this book! April 20 2008
By Mac - Published on Amazon.com
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.

HASH(0x9b2ee3c0) out of 5 stars Could Have Been A Good Book April 26 2008
By Robert Skorskovic - Published on Amazon.com
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...

HASH(0x9b2f451c) out of 5 stars Excellent resource even for non-beginners March 3 2008
By J2F - Published on Amazon.com
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.
HASH(0x9b2f48dc) out of 5 stars Badly written and difficult to follow June 8 2011
By Reviewer_in_DC - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Difficult to read. Jumps from concept to concept without explaining anything in detail. Doesn't hold the reader's hand in understanding Spring MVC concepts step-by-step. I am still searching for a good book on Spring MVC.

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.
