I've tried to follow several tutorials and looked at several books online but did not see any that truly catered to the "BEGINNER" of the Spring Framework. I was laid off back in December 2011 and found that looking for most Java developer jobs knowledge and experience in the Spring Framework is required. I've had other Java developer jobs since but working with Core Java that is NOT in any kind of framework. I've used the Stripes Web Framework previously and liked not having to delve into the web.xml when adding new classes to my project. Is that now better handled in Spring? How does your book get a "beginner" off and running quickly? Also, what version of the Spring Framework does your book cover? I've received an email from Spring stating they are at version 3.2 now.

Much success on your book. Thanks.

I have also seen most employers are now looking for Spring Framework skills. I know struts (1.2) well. How this book will help me from a beginner standpoint.

If you have good understanding of Core java and understand the basics of J2EE, I recommend using the book "Spring Recipes: A Problem-Solution Approach".

It really helped me to understand the concepts. The best way to learn is to practice as you read. Write a lot of code and it will help you understand the concepts.

Start with a hello world (https://github.com/manishchhabra/HelloSpringMVC) application and play with the code and keep flipping through the concepts / chapters.

Cheers
