Hi All,

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.

Can i start with Spring 2.0 only?

You should start with Spring 2.5, Spring 3.0 is near to come.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
