Hello Friends

I know Core java and i want to learn SPRING FRAMEWORK.

2. Spring in Action is a good book to start ?
3. I am confused about to things, now a days annotations a re used with spring , is it a new feature or enhancement of the basic version. Which one should i learn and which one is better??
4. Does Spring in Action includes that "Annotation Version "

Thanks and Regards

1. Java, so you're ok
2. Yes. The third edition (Spring 3.x) is on its way
3. First all definitions and bindings were made in xml files. Some people prefer using annotations instead. But you can still continue to do everything using xml files.
4. Yes

One more Query

Does Spring Second Version includes that Annotation Version ??? Are there major changes in 2nd and 3rd Edition , so that i can wait for third edition as it is not yet out ??

You can order "Spring in Action 3rd Edition" already via MEAP: http://www.manning.com/walls4/
So no need to wait.

I'd advise you to get a book for Spring3 rather than anything else. You can still subscribe to Manning's MEAP program if you are in a hurry.
