This is an obvious example of 'rush to print'. The author gives more information about kayaking than he does on Spring. The examples cannot be built from the information in the book. The build script in the book is incomplete and the code examples are more often then not left in a state which will not even compile. By chapter three you will either start searching the web for tutorials or be on the way to the store to by another book. Avoid this at all costs.Was this review helpful?

The authors use Mac and the structure of the samples, the dependencies are not structured very well and required you do a lot of work just to compile the examples. You will have to modify the build.xml files. The project files for InteiJ IDEA are included, however, the project type is wrong, they are defines as plan Java project not WEB project There are many typo in the book, see web page for errata. One other thing about the developer's notebook, the samples that you download from the web site are listed Spring-Chap2-lab1, Spring-Chap2-lab2, however, there is no way to relate the labs to what you read in the book. In addition there are spurious files in many of the projects. This book should be avoided.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
