I found this to be a very good book introducing the Spring Framework. I really wish I had this when I was first learning the Framework some years ago, it would have simplified my work quite a bit and saved me many hours of frustration.

The author, Ashish Sarin J Sharma, is quite knowledgeable and well aquainted with the Framework. His writing is very clear and to the point. I also appreciate the insights he offers when he points out that in the real world one would do this... I would have liked to see a bit more explanation of when one particular technique is better than another in different situations in the real world.

As for the contents, the first chapter, 49 pages, is an obligatory introduction to the basics of the framework and yet manages to get into quite a lot of material. Security, JMX and JMS as well as caching are introduced as well as Dependency Injection, configuration Metadata, and the Spring IoC container. Chapter 1 does not stop there but goes on to discuss "Programming to Interfaces". As I recall I first heard this concept and understood it in a talk by Peter Coad in Washington D.C around 1995. Chapter 1 goes on to discuss the techniques of Bean instantiation, Dependency Injection and bean Scope. This seemed like q kind of whirlwind introduction but the author is pretty good about keeping the explanations clear and in noting what it means in the "real world".

Chapter 2 is a pretty detailed description of the various means available for configuring Spring Beans. I would hesitate to refer to it as an introduction since it seems very comprehensive to me.

I must say this is one of the best and complete book for Spring 3.2. The language is quite simple, easy to understand and the best part I would say are the code examples given in the book. All major concepts like spring core module, dependency injection, spring AOP, Annotation driven development and database integration with spring framework are very well explained. Although all chapters are very good but my personal favorite ones are Ch-6 which introduces database interactions which includes Springs jdbc modules, Hibernate and support for JTA and Ch-8 which is about Aspect-oriented programming.

I highly recommend this book to Spring developers.

Well, seeing the good reviews on the site, I bought the book but its not as interesting as expected. Though it covers Spring in very much details, it will get boring over time and its definitely not a quick reference kinda book. Too much info about various bean instantiations and filled with lot of simple examples

But one major disadvantage is that it doesnt cover Spring MVC or security which is very crucial these days. Apart from that , quite an average book but lots of info abt beans which we sometimes or never use..

The author explains the concepts and reinforces with diagrams which helped me to get a better understanding of IOC. The examples are easy to understand and setup if you are familiar with Maven. I was able to understand the concepts more by seeing the sample applications run. This is one of the better spring books out there with a good balance of concepts and hands on.

I highly recommend it. Only reason I took one star off was due to lack of topics covered on security, MVC and web-services. Other than that, it's worth the investment in time and effort.

Format: Paperback
"Getting Started with Spring Framework" is an intro to Spring book. It covers less material than Manning's "Spring in Action"; however it is a shorter read and costs $15 less, so that's ok.

The explanations were fine. There were lots of code examples. My favorite part was the excellent diagrams. I liked all of the chapters except chapter 1. There were a couple of places in later chapters where multiple ways of doing something were presented, and it wasn't clear why you'd choose each way.

But what didn't I like about chapter 1 you ask? The chapter starts with a statement that rubbed me the wrong way. To paraphrase: in the old world, developers had to create well structured easily testable maintainable apps-- the implication being that Spring somehow relieves you of this duty. The truth is that you can create a pile of crud in Spring, too. This felt like "Spring is magic" salesmanship and it put me in a bad mood. The rest of the chapter was a mix of concepts critical to understand and a high level overview of things you never see in the book again.

I was also taken aback that the author tells readers to download Spring 3.2.0 RC 2. I think it's great that the author was testing with the latest and greatest. It's fine to mention that (although putting it on the back cover is pushing it.) However, someone just learning Spring should not use the release candidate version.

The book was self published and this was evident in a few ways. I saw a typo early on ("quiet" vs "quite"), some organizational issues which would have been brought up by an editor, and in general the layout looks like someone just printed a PDF and stuck it in a book with page breaks in some odd spots.
