Hi ranchers,
Solicit you to let me know which is the best spring book available in the market.I have searched in web and got these books but could'nt figure out to kick off with which book.

1)J2EE Development without EJB

2)Professional Java Development with the Spring Framework

3)Spring in Action

4)Pro Spring

5)Expert MVC and Web Flow

6)Spring Recipes: A Problem-Solution Approach

First of all, J2EE Development without EJB is not related to Spring. Spring was not even invented when this book was written. But it lays the foundation for lean software development and creation of Spring framework.

You start with "J2EE Development without EJB", get your concepts right, why EJB sucks, what is lightweight container, why unit testing is great etc.

Then I would recommend the below order:
1. Spring in Action
2. Professional Java Development with the Spring Framework
3. Spring documentation on their official website

Forget others.

Hi,
The point I missed out is I'm in a project which involves Spring and Hibernate,I don't have much time to learn it from scratch I mean from J2EE development without EJB.I forgot to remove that from the book list.

I think Spring in Action has a chapter that talks about integrating JDBC with spring, Hibernate with Spring and JDO with Spring!

My vote for Spring in Action ( here you can see the Table Of Contents of this book ).

I recommend the combo Spring in Action and Java Persistance with Hibernate . They're very enjoyable to read. I devoured about 1500 pages in 2 days.
