I liked Spring In Action. I only own the first edition, so I can't tell about the second edition.

Well there are no good books outside for springframework except for (Expert Spring MVC). All other books sprig in action, beginning in spring, etc. are all crap.

If you can read the whole book of 9 chapters on one big web applications with errors in it then go for it. Just a thought and please read the reviews on
