Hi,
The old edition of book was awesome. I have two questions regarding new version
1. Does it cover the spring security part?
2. It seems the new version of book covers REST? Why is the web services using SOAP is completely eliminated?

Thanks
Barry

1. Yes, Spring Security 3 is covered
2. Yes, it does cover REST. But it does not completely eliminate SOAP coverage. There is a bit of SOAP-based web services coverage in the remoting chapter.

That said, this edition does not cover Spring-WS. In short, the first edition of the book attempted to be comprehensive and mostly succeeded. The 2nd edition attempted it and failed miserably (the Spring universe had become too big to fit in a single volume). By the time I started on the 3rd edition, I had to admit up front that I couldn't cover *everything*, so I made some tough decisions. Spring-WS didn't make the cut.

But, up until recently, Spring-WS hadn't changed dramatically since the 2nd edition. So, there wasn't much new to write about on that topic anyway.

Thanks both of you. I have a MEAP version of book. Do I have to pay again in full or will I get discount to get the released version of book.

Barry.
