Haven't read it myself but if it's anything like the Hibernate and Maven versions of the series, Bruce Tate's "Spring: A Developer's Notebook" might be one book to consider. Personally, I think "Pro Spring" is a good investment. It may not be a "Dummies" type book but any experienced Java developer should find it a great resource for getting up and running with Spring.

Oh..I remember reading a few not too good comments about A Developer's Notebook. Check out the reviews and search on the net for it.
I would definately recommend Pro Spring. A very hands-on approach to learning about Spring.

I would not recommend "Developer's Notebook".

"Pro Spring" is excellent. I think "Spring In Action" is a very good book, too. It's not as heavy a text as "Pro Spring", and it has a chapter on the ACEGI security framework.

I would also suggest starting with the "Spring MVC Step by Step" tutorial that comes with the download. It's a good intro to Spring - a simple 3 tier solution.

Pro Spring is good.
Spring in Action is good too, but I find it harder to use as a learning book - but it covers more stuff and has more details.

But am I the only one to find that the official Spring documentation is actually pretty good? It's almost as good as the hibernate one, which is one of the very best documentations for an Open Source project...

I agree - Spring's docs ARE very good.
