I'm a contractor. I have no idea what my next task is. But we're going to be using Spring. We're at the end of a project - on the cusp of going to production - so getting specs and answers isn't happening.
The boss understands this and just tells me to get acquainted with Spring. Reasonable enough. Where should I begin?
Many of the demos and tutorials I have found online are for Spring 2. We're using Spring 3.
Books, sites, anything!
The ideal tutorial would start with a blank page and build a web application a little more complex than a Rolodex.
