Thank you for the Information Kengkaj. Actually I am totally newbie to Spring and I have tried going Documentation but frankly speaking am having some hard time to understand concepts like IoC.

Is there any other book or reference which can be recommended for the newbie like me.

Would highly appreciate your inputs and guidance.


Thanks.

Spring Live used to be published through SourceBeat, which has since gone under. The new version is titled Spring Primer and is available from Lulu.com

I guess you are saying about hard copy(papers) not pdf content or some other electronic content.

How much did it cost for you in INR? and how long did it take to ship to your home?

Yes. I am talking about Hard Copy and not pdf but I believe there is pdf version of it available too. I was able to find pdf version of Spring Live which is earlier version of Spring Primer.

I am not sure about price in INR but it's price is 39 dollars. I believe you can find pdf version of Spring Live if you look for it.

Thanks.

This thread is almost 2 years old, so I would look for more up to date information as the book arena has definitely changed as well as versions of Spring has changed.

Going to close this old thread. Please try not to resurrect old threads.

Thanks
