I'm interested in using JSF as the front end to Spring. Does this book cover integration of these two technologies, and if not, do you plan to create an online resource for book owners laying out this information?

Based on the table of contents, it doesn't look like JSF integration is discussed. Spring in Action mentions it briefly but doesn't really cover it. I believe Spring Live doesn't cover it either (Matt, are you around?).

Yes, I didn't see it in the TOC either, and that's why I was asking the related question to see if they planned to make something available online.

I've talked to one of the authors of the Spring in Action book and he said that there is a small section that discusses it.

I would think that a lot of people would be interested in doing it this way, so some books surely will start covering it.

I don't mean to hijack a discussion about someone else's Spring book, but since Spring in Action was mentioned...

We spend 4-5 pages in chapter 10 discussing how to integrate JSF with Spring. There's really not much to it, so we covered it rather quickly. Of course, because we weren't writing a JSF book, we made the assumption that the reader came to that section knowing JSF already. If not, then there are at least 3 good JSF books that I know of that they can refer to in their thirst for JSF knowledge.

Are you saying that coverage of Spring-JSF integration has been there since February?

If so, then they neglected to update the chapter summaries as there is NO mention of it at all:

Chapter Summaries for Spring Live

You are correct - we need to update the TOC. I'll see about getting that done today.

Thanks,

Matt

This is another of the topics that we didn't manage to cover in the book - but as Craig mentions there is very little to it and Spring's JavaDoc for DelegatingVariableResolver shows you all the steps you need to take.

May be we need to wish for a book in the lines of 'JUnit recipes' which will have tons of examples to integrate or use other frameworks in the end-to-end implementations

I'll second that. Having something that shows you exactly how the coupling should be done in a step by step manner between Spring and JSF, and Hibernate, etc. would be a great thing to have.

I believe Spring Live does exactly that.

Looks like that link is dead right now (at least I can't get to it...or sourcebeat) but I will try again later. Although I'm more of a print copy kind of person, I might end up getting both this (Spring Live) and Spring In Action.

Thanks!

Hi Darrin,

The link Spring Live it is working right now, if you want to check it out.

You can get a Print copy of (spring live) at amazon. Or even better get spring Live and J2EE without EJB for 69$ bucks

I like print copy books too, but in this case I like to be more updated with the frameworks, I think sourcebeat is really cool idea.

Just buy the 'Spring live' book if you want to get practical knowledge. Rod's book 'J2EE without EJB' is more of a theoritical rheoteric than make u get going, in my personal opinion.
