Getting started with Spring Framework: Moving from simple JSP/Servlet to Spring

Hi - I know a little bit of Java as a hobbyist, in the form of writing some Servlet/JSP CRUD applications using IBM WSAD from years ago. Those applications still work OK - but for issues like I have been using MS Access as my database, which is no longer supported using Eclipse, unless using UCanAccess on Windows 7/10.
I have been advised to upgrade - and suggested to use Spring.
My struggle is, where do I start? Is "Getting started with Spring Framework: a hands-on guide to begin developing applications using Spring Framework " a good book at that level?
I need a step by step guide to set up the software on my Windows PC, including an environment variables, odbc, etc., then download and install Spring, app server like Tomcat, ideally MS Accessand then write simple apps to use insert, update, etc.
Also, then be able to create a deploy able file like a .war, and host the app on my hosting provider where I have mysql and tomcat 6.
Thanks much!

Hi Rohit,

Getting started with Spring Framework is meant for experienced Java developers. If you have a few years of experience working as Java developer, you'll feel quite comfortable with the book. If you have never worked on JSPs/Servlets and Tomcat, you'll not feel comfortable with chapters on web application development. Similarly, if you have never worked with databases, you'll find it difficult to work with chapters on database access.

If you have any problems in following the book, then you can post your questions to the following forum dedicated to the book:!forum/getting-started-with-spring-framework
