Can the Spring Framework be easily utilized with Android? Will there be any examples of this in your book?

Using Spring is out of the topic of this book, it's about Front end Mobile Web apps but offcourse your backend server can use Spring. For Native apps I know there is Spring Android project, you could this.

There is a Spring Mobile project: http://www.springsource.org/spring-mobile

However, it's focus is not to provide a Spring MVC/Webflow framework for the Android platform. What it does do is provide tools to connect your Android application to REST-based services on the server side (RestTemplate et al). In addition, the Spring Mobile distribution provides tools that you can include within Spring MVC on the server-side to detect that a mobile device is accessing your web-based application and allows you to redirect that user to a mobile-optimized website.

Thanks, that makes scene. I was more interested in integration points with spring (soap, rest) web-services rather than using spring MVC in client app.
