"Spring in Action" is a good book for learning Spring. The official documentation is also a good read.

I would recommend "Spring in Action". Great book to start and master spring API.

Spring in action3 is a good book. It makes extensive use of annotations, so it might take you a while to get hang of how to use annotation(if you have not used it before). It is a good book to be read couple of time to appreciate the concepts covered in the book.

Another vote to "Spring in Action". Latest version is 4.x which correspond to 4e of the book.

I myself too need to catch up on Spring.
