Hi J Sharma & Ashish Sarin,

Best of luck with the book.

What knowledge would a person need before starting to read your book?
Would a good understanding of Java be enough?

Thanks.
Brian

Hi Brian,

A good understanding of Java is the only prerequisite for reading Getting started with Spring Framework book. We intentionally left out Spring Web MVC, Spring Security, and so on, modules of Spring so that it is easy for a beginner to read this book. All the example applications that accompany this book are standalone applications, so it is easy to understand and run them.

regards
ashish

Hi Ashish

Thanks for the reply. I think you have answered my next question already, but here it goes anyway.
What type of hardware does one need for the examples in the book?

Thanks,
Brian
