Hello All,

I am new to frameworks and want to start with Springs.

Which is the best introductory book on Springs. I have heard that versions of Springs have great differences among them and the latest is Spring 3.0.

So any recommended great book for starting with Springs 3.0 ??

Thanks for the great help.

Unfortunately, at this time the current version covers Spring 2.0, not Spring 3.0. Craig Walls is currently working on his next version which will cover 3.0

There might be one book out there that covers 3.0 besides the normal Spring Documentation.

Also, FYI Spring is not pluralized, so no "s" is needed at the end of it.

Good Luck

Learn from the official spring documentation and then download the sample apps from Spring. You can lean more hare-core usages this way.
