It's a good tutorial, easy to follow with working code and only a couple of typo's that probably won't cause someone familiar with java, servlets, and ant much trouble. So if you're looking for an intro tutorial, I recommend it.
But unfortunately, I can't get the last chapter (Integrating the Web Application with the Persistence Layer). At this point, it would probably help if I could get hold of a full download of the app, but doesn't look like there's one on the site, and I didn't seen any contact email address for feedback/questions...
I've gone through the tutorial very carefully twice, and it doesn't appear to work as written. Has anyone tried this tutorial and managed to get this to work? If not... I guess trying to debug this will be my learning experience, though it would be nice to be able to examine some code that I know works.
Unfortunately, I deleted the project folder, and I didn't archive it, so I can't give the exact stack trace anymore. But I think it was a "page not found" error.
It turns out that this is the same example that ships with spring, and a quick review shows that the PDF doesn't have a couple of typos I noticed in the web version... so I'm going to try out that version first and see if it solves the problem.
If it's still trouble, I'll post again.
I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
