There are a whole bunch of Spring books; which version of Spring do you want to use?

Hibernate is an ORM product--Spring has Hibernate utilities/abstractions, but unless you need to use it, the two are completely unrelated.

Deeps,

I am reading Spring in Action by Craig Walls but i dont remember which version of spring it teaches . I think spring 2.0 version

This book is good and it is more like a text book i would suggest you to buy Spring Live and it explains concepts with examples and it uses lot of screen shots also(i like graphical way of learning than reading lengthy text).

This is my opinion any way you can read through the sample chapters of both books available online before buying them...I dont know about other books.

AFAIK only the MEAP version of Spring in Action covers 3.0 so far, but it's barely got any content yet.

Your best bet right now is the Spring documentation, unless there's another early-access book available already.
