Any good books for a Spring newbie to read? Are there any good books covering Spring 2.0, and if not, is reading the older books (and which ones?) still useful?

hi Janne,

there aren't any books on Spring 2.0 (yet), but have a look at

There's a step-by-step tutorial that's a bit old but still good.
And Spring 1.2-code will still work with Spring2.0
(well at least in my applications).

You can then move on to the reference documentation for 2.0, which is pretty good.

If you want a book to begin with: Pro Spring (Apress).

I used all of these 3 when I learned Spring by adding Spring an existing webapplication(easier use of JDBC, defining transactions and using AOP for logging)

I agree. Here's the link:
