I would prefer that both of them do more coverage of developing a web application and less of things like remoting and other "tangential" stuff. Perhaps a better way to do it would be a 2 volume set with one covering the web side in gory detail. I definitely think you could do a book the length of Spring in Action that just covers web applications.
