Krystian, you beat me to the punch! I posted my similar question just minutes after yours. My apologies for the overlap...

With your experience level, you will be able to handle the Java EE 7 Tutorial.

I really can't answer which is more popular, Spring or Java EE 7. We concentrate on teaching about the platform, Spring and other frameworks provide what they feel users need to develop applications that will run in a Java EE environment. Typically, frameworks address shortcomings in the platform or in platform technologies or offer an easier way to accomplish something. Spring 4 offers support for JMS 2.0, JPA 2.1, Bean Validation 1.1, Servlet 3.1, and WebSocket, so they have kept pace with the platform. Since frameworks are not in my area of expertise, I'll let other users chime in with their preferences.
