I wanted to learn spring by reading as little as possible and doing as much as possible. Are there any good resources with tutorials and books for learning spring ?
Any reliable website with sample spring projects ?

The Spring tutorial is good as is Spring in Action. They key for you will be to try all the examples and experiment.

Spring is a big topic. Start small - like dependency injection - so you aren't reading as much up front.

Hi Lexington,

I would suggest you the following tutorials for beginner:

- Understanding the core of Spring framework
- Understanding Spring MVC
- Understanding Spring AOP

Each tutorial come with examples and a sample application.
Hope this helps.

I have blogged about high level spring concepts with diagrams in a questions and answers style to get an overview.
