I’ve been working a lot with the Spring Framework again in the last year. Apart from lots of my work involving it and the JsServ Interceptor I wrote last weekend, another result of this is a book some people from my company wrote. It is about Spring and integrating other technologies into it. It is meant to focus on the practical aspects and tries to explain some exemplary solutions to common problems encountered when working with Spring.
I wrote an awesome chapter about web development with Spring which contains examples for creating a little shop application with a REST-like interface in Spring Web MVC and Spring Webflow.
So if you like a read a brilliant book Spring development, go and buy it . This might work best if you can read German, but you can buy one anyway if you don’t. Hell, buy two and give one away for Xmas.
The book and example code should be available in a few days.
