Spring lets you do things with plain-vanilla JavaBeans that formerly required complex EJBs. Learn a few new concepts, follow their implications, and suddenly you’re writing enterprise code that’s cleaner, simpler, and easier to manage. Now two of the first programmers to discover Spring’s power share it with the rest of us. Their enthusiasm’s contagious. You can tell how relieved they are to have finally found a better way.
The concepts you need to learn sound intimidating: “inversion of control,” and (finally out of the advanced computer labs), AOP. But the authors introduce them simply and well, with plenty of examples. You’ll learn how to use Spring’s infrastructure for data persistence, transactions, and more.
