Craig Walls,

Thank you very much for your efforts! I have started developing a web-site using Spring 3 MVC framework. I hope this book will be very helpful to me.

Thank you for having me visit the Spring forum. I'll try my best to stay on top of the questions posed here. Be aware that I'll probably post replies all at once toward the end of my day (I'm in the U.S., so adjust your clocks accordingly) since I have a day job to attend to.

I'll go ahead and answer the big question that usually comes up...what's in Spring in Action 3?

As you're probably aware, almost 3 years have past since SiA2 was published. In that time there has been a lot of new stuff come out in the Spring universe. I'm going to try to cover as much of that as is reasonable, but at the same time stay on a track that focuses on Spring's core features. What this means is that I'm going to cover the topics that I believe are most important to the vast majority of my readers, but there are some topics that simply will not be discussed.

Spring-DM, for example, is not in line with the core Spring story...it has a great story of its own, but it isn't central to the kind of things that most Spring developers want to know.

That said, what I will cover will include:
- Spring's new annotation-oriented dependency injection model (@Component/@Autowired/@Value)
- The Spring Expression Language (SpEL)
- Spring AOP
- Persistence with Hibernate and JPA
- Declarative transactions
- Spring's annotation-based MVC framework (I won't be discussing the old controller-hierarchy MVC framework)
- REST and Spring MVC
- Spring Security 3.0
- Spring Web Flow 2.0
- Spring 3's new annotation-based asynchronous and scheduled method support
- Remoting with Spring
- Messaging with Spring

And a lot more that I can't think of right now. I'm also considering adding a chapter or (at least) an appendix on Spring Roo.

Thanks again for letting me drop in and talk Spring with you. I've got to get to work now, but I'll drop in a little later today and answer some of your questions.

Thank you for the previous version. It is my first Spring book and it got me in, not overwhelm me. I have since been a Spring fan, and now wondering how big projects get organized without Spring.

I hope I find time and read (and do all exercises) on this one too.
