Hi.

I am currently reading Spring in Action. Up to chapter 3, I kinda lost touch with the previous chapters and lost some enthusiasm.

How can I learn Spring effectively?

Would an online course with practical exercises be better? Which do you recommend?

Thanks

Alan,
Welcome to CodeRanch!

This is a learning style question. Some people learn from books and practicing code. Some learn better through a self paced class. Some learn better through a real time class. We can't tell what works best for you. How do you learn other coding topics best?

Welcome to the Ranch.

I agree with Jeanne, we don't know what "effectively" means for you.

The Spring Framework website has a lot of good reference documentation: http://spring.io/docs
and also a set of guides to learn building specific things with Spring: http://spring.io/guides

I never enjoyed learning through books until I started reading SCJP exam guide by Kathy Sierra and Bert bates.
Eventually I started reading Head first jsp and servlets. You have to choose good selective books from a lot out there.
I heard from my friend and also from online forum comments that Spring in Action is a recommended book to learn spring.
