Hi Craig,

I currently have the fifth edition. Are there any good reasons for me to upgrade to this edition? If so, what are those reasons?

(Apart from you getting extra money, of course )

Initially the 6th edition was going to be a minimal update with very few changes except to align with the newest versions of Spring and address some errata. But that has changed and now there's going to be quite a few new bits. Many chapters will have minimal-to-no changes whatsoever. But there will be new material covering Spring Data JDBC, Spring Data R2DBC, RSocket, new security stuff, and a few other things that I can't remember now. It's not going to be a complete rewrite...but it won't be the exact same material as before, either.

I guess it's best to upgrade my copy then. The last book I did that for was Effective Java.
