What was your goal in writing a "pocket handbook" for Spring ? The Spring environment is pretty big . Do you expect that the readers are already familiar with Spring and just need to look something up ,as needed, in the guide?
Good question. It is really big and I didn't cover every single Spring project. My goal was to cover what I think are some of the best projects and most useful.
No I don't expect the reader to already know Spring. The first chapter is on dependency injection. However, this book strives to be so comprehensive that even seasoned developers should get something out of it. I myself have gone back to reference it many times.
I see there are about 8 pages or so specifically about Spring AOP.
I had posted a question in the adjacent AOP forum asking "Hey, nobody ever posts in here anymore. Is AOP dead or all the questions get asked in, for example, the Spring forum?"
I guess with reference to what you cover in the book, is AOP nearly a footnote, or is it still pretty important and just clean-cut enough that 8 pages covers everything people need to know about it in Spring?
