Hi everyone,
Can anybody recommend me a Spring framework book, for beginner?
Let's say i am at that point where i understand the hole servlet-jsp "deal", and i want to use Spring (or Spring MVC).
Maybe somebody will make it clear for me what's what.
Thank you for your time!

I think books is more user friendly than just a documentation

how one can measure amount of knowledge you get?
