Would it cover Spring container along with the Spring web services - SOAP and REST. Would you also be having an insight in regards to what to use, some design pitfalls when using Spring, when to use it. I have worked on few projects where I have seen spring implementation just to sound cool and new. Just to give us an idea as to why spring, and the flavors it offers. I do understand that now, Spring Web Applications is new way, some people also still prefer struts 2 etc.

Would you also cover spring microservices like Spring Boot?

Would you be having code samples and exercises or examples to help us better understand through show and tell ways?

Sorry too many questions, I have always been looking for a Spring book which would cover basic and advanced - like a reference book.

Hi Ravi,

- The book doesn't cover developing SOAP web service. It covers developing RESTful web services using Spring Web MVC.
- The book does highlight benefits of using Spring Framework for enterprise application development
- Spring Boot is not covered. I intentionally left it out as I don't see it at the heart of learning Spring Framework
- Yes, the book comes with 88 sample projects that are explained in the book. You can compile and run these projects using your favorite IDE.
- The book is meant for beginners in Spring Frameowork

With a little knowledge, a cast iron skillet is non-stick and lasts a lifetime.
