Learning Spring - Resources and Books

I've gone through some basic Spring materials and will be helping others learn Spring as well. I'm looking for some good resources and books on it. One that is always recommended is "Spring in Action". How is the book "Getting Started with Spring Framework" better, different, etc from "Spring in Action" or others? Any other thoughts or recommendations for books and resources? Even videos?

Hi Aaron,

Getting started with Spring Framework book focuses on Spring Framework basics. Chapters 1-5 focus on core Spring concepts. Chapters 7 and 8 show usage of Spring for database interaction, caching, transaction management, messaging, asynchronous execution and sending/receiving emails. Chapter 8 of the book covers Spring AOP. The coverage of Spring Security and Spring Web MVC has been left out intentionally because they are very wide topics, and don't make much sense for a 'getting started' guide.

There is no better alternative than their refrence document and their excellent Java Docs. Here is the migration guide from 2.5.x to 3.0.5.

Here is the youtube channel for spring 3.

Here is the pdf of the reference doc to download.

Thanks and Regards,
