I am invloved in the design of my application using Spring and Hibernate. I need some information link/Good design Books on Spring. I am pretty much ok with Hibernate but not with Spring.

It would be great help if someone show me right path for Good Book (Amazon) and resources on the net.

Thanks in advance

http://www.springframework.org/books may be a bit self-serving (they're mostly books by the framework authors) but a good list.

I've several of them myself, and the company a few more.
All are good reads.
Mind that the 3rd party libraries used in some books are older versions where the examples need rework to work with the current versions of those libraries (especially Hibernate and HSQLDb both of which recently released new versions which are fundamentally incompatible with previous ones).

I've had pretty good success with the books from Manning, specifically Spring in Action.

Yes, Spring in Action is nice to read.

I highly recommend Pro Spring. It is an excellent book for somebody starting in Spring, and wanting to get a fairly good idea of how all the different modules work.

For more detail, try Professional Java Development with the Spring Framework.
The links and brief descriptions are on the link Jeroen pointed to.

Thanks guys for your reply.
Please let me know, which one is better one from design and architecture point of view, where some real time implementaion is there (but optioanl) and discusses the design pattern and esp. Hibernate

I am decicding to buy a book on Spring and found two books.
1. Spring in Action by Craig Walls and Ryan Breidenbach
2. Pro Spring by Rob Harrop and Jan Machacek
3. Expert One-on-One J2EE Development without EJB

When I read the comment of Pro Spring, somehow I am convinced myself towards this book. But, need feedback from someone who ready read it.

Thanks

haven't read the first.
Second is good, both as a teaching tool and reference.
Third is more theoretical backgrounds behind Spring, interesting when you've got the basics down but not for beginners.
