I am going through the Spring Web MVC by seth ladd and in this book i read the following lines -
The first thing to notice about this class is that it marks the handleRequest() method
(from the Controller interface) as final
But when i look at the API handleRequest is not final. Later i realised that spring API version is 2.5.4 and book is intended to have Spring 2.0. Can somebody would tell me how different is spring 2.5.4 from spring 2.0.
