This is the book I see hanging around most of the sites where I do development. From what I understand, it's a good book that covers the fundamentals pretty good, although sometimes it feels like it's trying hard to cover too much. Nevertheless, it does cover alot, so thats to be expected.

Agile Development with Hibernate and Spring

Of course, there are always the big red books. This Wrox book is a good reference, and reads, looks and feels like any other Wrox book, which some people like, and some people don't. I've always liked the Wrox books myself.

Spring by Wrox

One thing I always find about the Wrox books is they are often written by many authors, as are many technical books. Sometimes that takes away from the experience and common thought thread that should run throughout a technical book.

"rajani kr",

There aren't many rules that you need to worry about here on the Ranch, but one that we take very seriously regards the use of proper names. Please take a look at the JavaRanch Naming Policy and adjust your display name to match it.

In particular, your display name must be a first and a last name separated by a space character, and must not be obviously fictitious.

Does Spring in Action cover 2.0? I'm debating if I should wait for a 2.0 reference book or if Spring in Action is the best book to get right now.

"Spring in Action" is using version 1.1.X actually.
Even if it's not about 2.0, I think it's valuable, and you'll learn a lot.
