Comments about oreilly Beginning Spring:

I've already commented this book and would like to add this appreciation about a particular point of the product : the EXAMPLES.

Examples in this book are neither finalized nor usable.
What is very important when starting a new technology is the possibility to make it work quicly.
Examples are the best material to start manipulate and discover all the capabilities of such a tool.

In this book, many examples are not complete. Downloadable files often just look like the extracts we can find in the book.
Oftenly, examples do not work and we're wasting a lot of time and energy to find out all the forgotten lines of code missing to make it really work.

In fact, free web sites offer much more usable and useful examples than not-cheap-at-all books.

Comments about oreilly Beginning Spring:

As a beginner, I would say that this books gave me (and is still giving) good foundations to understand what we're talking about.
Many concepts are explained in a quick-tour way and that's a good approach : enough concrete elements to start working with it without too much tough knowledges.
Something very interesting is that the author always shows 3 ways for doing the same thing : with Java code, xml, annotations.

But these good points have their own limits.
As a developer I also need a cookbook approach giving me code samples that are working completely, not only showing me how and where I shall write annotations.
Finally, having little limited code samples doesn't help to have a global vision of what the product can do and what it can not. And more often, they are not enough to make something working completely.
For example, I'm very interested in declaring resources I use in the JNDI, but all the code given doesn't help to make my databse managed by my server.
I have many error messages telling me that a property file is missing, and so on.

Rare are the books based on a global project that may show all the capabilites of the studied theme : database access, web service deployment, etc.
What a pity !
