I am trying to learn spring. I have read spring in action 3 and reading extensively on internet about spring. I have also started building a spring web application similar to online e-store. I am trying to incorporate as many feature of spring and trying to make it as close to real time web application.
I have so far completed various functionality like MVC implementation, form validations, database connectivity, aspectj features, annotation, hibernate and tomcat etc. I have also covered various patterns. I hope to learn spring in depth while building this applications.
I am also planning to cover various other functionality like spring web flow, spring jms and integration with web services.
I have couple of ideas of how to implement a particular functionality and what to implement. I want to open up a discussion to get help from beginners/pros and provide help to beginners/pros to learn and build spring application.
Please provide your input and anyone interested, let us learn together. It will make learning easy and fun. With lot of ideas and concepts, I hope to build something interesting.

Sure I can blog my project. I need to know if you have practically started using the concepts that you have learnt so far, so that I can help you to get the project started.
I'm really new. I just started my internship, and so I'm mostly reading. I think I need to start coding in a few weeks. I don't know how to use maven either. My boss said he will do that. But, he might switch to Gradle. Thanks for letting me follow your project. I hope I can contribute if my skills are adequate.

Ok. I will help you to get started with coding. Follow the link: Spring MVC1. Don't worry about details for now. Just try to set up your environment. I am making use of gradle. You might not want to learn it, but just follow the instruction and that should be fine.
Naresh, my boss gave me a sample app to debug. He said it will help me learn about our project. I won't be able to work on your project today, and if work gets busy, I won't be able to work on your project at all.
If you are interested, I can give you a copy of the apps. They are interview problems that use spring. It's supposed to take an hour to complete if you are a midlevel or expert developer. You have to fix the problems listed on the readme file. Thanks for your help.
The instructions are in the README file. These apps use maven. They are both Spring apps. My boss said that stumblr is going to be more like the project that we will be working on. I think yalp is supposed to be easier. I'll remove the apps off my dropbox account after you download it. gl.
