1. Only by the end the author decided to acquaint his readers with the basics of Gradle despite all his examples being built with the later. Explaining the basics of gradle.build, settings.gradle, a handful of plugins (4 would probably be enough for the most part) and syntax for dependency management would have probably taken few pages in the beginning, but would instead help follow along better with the examples from the source code and learn better coding principles too
2. The author defended SoC, but didn't introduce the separation between @Service and @Repository in the Data section.
3. Great attention was granted to Spring Testing in the beginning. Unfortunately in the second part of the book when the code became more compelling and when the need for integration testing kicked-in testing examples decreased if not disappeared. Too bad because this is where Spring Testing shuns when compared to EE.
4. Some examples lacked depth - the book assumes you have a good understanding of JPA and only scratches the surface of Session and Prototype Scoped Beans, Webflow.
But other then that and a few typos that is a great book which I certainly advise to those who decide to shift towards using this framework. As a confirmation of this I have ordered author's next Spring book - Boot in Action. In the event of a next edition of Spring in Action it would be interesting to see new topics covered, such as Spring Social or Spring Cloud.
Also their focus on a relatively unknown template implementation didn't help either.
At least it does give a fairly comprehensive overview but I will have to scour the web for more detailed info.
