I am very new to Spring. I have studied spring with the help of Spring in Action by Manning. And i feel it is really good book. Thanks to Manning. Now I am asked to setup a framework in spring which supports hibernate, mysql, jquery, ajax,iText and most common libraries from apache. and we are using tomcat as container. So anybody tell me what are the requirements we have to consider when we develop a software development framework. And suggest good books.
Thanks and regards

Though I can't tell you step by step procedure until you start doing it and hit some issue, but setting the enviornment is all about putting required jar files and spring xml files into classpath...

Note the the Second Edition of Spring in Action is old. It covers mostly just Spring 2.0 and little 2.5, whereas Spring is currently on version Spring 3.x

Yeah, posting jar file dependencies are difficult. I recommend learning Maven, then later Gradle for dependency management in builds.

Also, look at That is a repository with OSGi compliant jar files for third party dependencies.
