Spring in action - integration with other web frameworks

a few more questions from me.

2nd edition of Spring in action contains a chapter "Integrating with other web frameworks", which contains description of integration with
Struts and Tapestry, than integration with Direct Web Remoting, JSF, etc.

Does the similar chapter exists in the 3rd edition? If it exists, which frameworks are described?

Since I use a combination Spring+GWT, is maybe an integration with GWT described?
Also, is it maybe described an integration of Spring Security with GWT?

Thank you in advance!

Best regards,

Sorry, but no such chapter exists in the 3rd edition. Similar to an answer I just posted in another thread, integrating Spring with [insert web framework here] would make a wonderful topic for an article or blog entry. But trying to cover that in a book causes trouble in terms of the book's scope. What frameworks do you include? Which do you leave out? There are so many that I couldn't include them all and any that I leave out will likely trigger "Why didn't you cover my web framework?" questions.

I decided that those aren't central to the Spring story, so I left them out. They're good topics and there's no reason to not explore them. But I wanted to keep the 3rd edition more focused.

Hi Craig,

In the book's description it says it includes "Integrate with most popular web frameworks". Is this in general without any specific framework?

I agree. Here's the link:
