A guide to the Spring Framework provides instructions for designing and building applications.
This book covers Spring 2.5, a Java EE application framework, from basic to advanced concepts, and introduces several common Spring projects. The first section focuses on core concepts and mechanisms of the Spring framework. Part 2 covers features used frequently in developing enterprise applications, and Part 3 examines advanced topics such as security and Spring Web Flow. Instead of abstract descriptions, topics are introduced with complete, real-world code example that readers can follow step by step. The book is for Java developers how want to gain hands-on experiences on Java/Java EE development using the Spring framework. Readers don't need much Java EE experience to read the book; however, the book assumes that readers know the basics of object-oriented programming with Java. It also assumes basic knowledge on web and database concepts, and on creating dynamic web pages and query databases with SQL statements.
