I have a couple of questions.
(i) Does your book cover the Validation part? Validations are crucial in any application particularly when you are trying to upload some data through your front end screens(jsps,html).
(ii) Any future plans to cover spring web services in any of your next releases?
I agree, that validation is an important point of a web application. In chapter 3 we have a section about valdation. The topic web services is outside of scope of that book. But if moore readers are interested in we can think about it.
About model validate method, I don't like it.
It defeats separation of concern to have validation code in model class. Do you know the reason why Spring Web Flow supports this method natively?
And it seems that Spring Web Flow 2 embraces convention-over-configuration. I'm no fan of CoC, I think it makes code less understandable. Does Spring Web Flow 2 allow to disable CoC and use configuration mode instead?
