Hi, i don't know anything about SPRING, I want to learn it. i have knowledge of JAVA, SERVLETS,JDBC and JSP. I am confused when i go to spring home page and the tutorial given by them. I don't know where to start. Can any one please suggest me where to start. And what is SPRING? WHY spring?
As for where to start, you can Google for tutorials as well as I can I imagine, or you might consider picking up a book like Spring in Action. Their reference documentation is very thorough so take a look at that as well. The only advice I would give is look for tutorials that use current versions of Spring (3.x) and start with the core Spring Framework and save learning the other Spring projects for later.
Spring In Action was very useful when I was learning Spring. It not only tells you how Spring does things the way it does, it also tells you why it does it. I would definetely reccomend who has even little bit of experience developing java apps to to start with it.
