Spring is just a few months away, but I want to learn it now.

I'm currently learning servlets and jsp, and I've not completed it yet. But I want to incorporate Spring learning journey alongside my current learning topics.

Any suggestions...
Any Book recommendations...
Any thought on how would you embark upon a trek, learning servlets, jsps and spring all at the same time...
Any idea of the 24 hr time-table you would design for this task...
Any idea of how would you do this before the new year's eve...

Any anything else you want to include...

Have you considered the official site yet?

Hi.

Do you mean the official Spring documentation site..?

No, because I thought it would be too formal for a beginner, and moreover, I've never experienced learning a language looking at the official doc.

It sounds an interesting approach though.

Thanks.

1. Spring is not a language; it is a Java-based framework.

2. You can buy a book on Spring and go through it. Spring Boot in Action and Spring in Action are two books about Spring that walk you through the creation of a Spring-based application. There is also a MEAP livebook where you can submit your work at various stages of development for evaluation. Check out Manning.com for some good references on Spring.

I'll still say have a browse of the Spring Documentation.  
It's always well written, accurate, and up to date.

Thank you so much for those book recommendations.

You really should. Rarely* have I found a better source for learning a popular language or framework than the official site. Spring's official site is also full of quick start guides and tutorials and samples. It should be more than enough to get you going.

* "Learn You A Haskell" is a great exception.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
