Spring Framework

I have just started to learn about the Spring Framework. However, I am finding it difficult to find good resources on the web.

I am particulary interested in Spring and JDBC.

I would like to find a book / tutorial to guide me through it with good examples.

I have had a look at the website but it doesn't have good examples or doesn't explain it from a beginners perspective.

Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
