Hi eveyone,

I am planning to study the spring framework, however, I've leaned that the current version is spring3 which has very different from the spring 2.

so My question is: shall I study the most current one, namely Spring 3?
Are most companies in the industry still using the Spring 2?

I have got the Spring in Action 3rd edition, however, I found some of the source code mention in the book are not so complete, can someone study this book give me some hint where to find the source code?

Thanks

I recommend using the latest version and the latest techniques for writing Spring applications. Using an older version just gets you into bad habits. Also, everything you do in Spring 2.x is still the same in Spring 3.x 3.x just adds a bunch more features, which you should want to use, but it is always backwards compatible.
