This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP 8 forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide and have Edward Finegan & Robert Liguori on-line! See this thread for details.
I have around 9 years of java/j2ee experience. I have worked on couple of java/j2ee technologies. I wanted to learn Spring, and wanted to dig deep understanding the design, issues and nuisances involved. Is there some real time project/good project i can get involved in to learn spring.
I don't know if you are looking for open source projects using Spring to contribute to or a project to learn from. If you are looking for a project to learn from then Spring offers many samples on github. You can start with this one.
