BTW, Rod Johnson also has a book which is more or less a Spring overview titled "J2EE Design and Development". I have the book, and it is a good one (particularly if you want to use the Spring framework).

After I have had a look at the book home page at Wrox site, I'm sure that the book is for a experienced enterprise developers and instead of introducing about the Spring, the book might be talking about the tools in overview. And I also don't see any chapter that is discussing about the Spring in the book...

It's all through the book really. It just talks about problems and how Spring overcomes them. If you want to learn Spring, this book will help you out (although I'm no Spring expert...not in the least...after reading it).

Rod's book is where Spring got its origins. The framework code that Rod uses throughout the book eventually turned into the foundation from which the Spring Framework takes its roots. The book is awesome and will give you great insight into the design decisions that went into Spring... however you won't be learning the Spring API because it has changed significantly. Rod has another book coming out in June called Expert One-on-One J2EE Development without EJB, this one will definitely cover Spring in detail.

Spring Live should also be done by the end of the month. It will likely not be as emcompassing as the books by Rod, however Matt Raible has a strong sense of pragmatism when it comes to web development and Spring Live should be an excellent resources for those using Spring in web applications.
