  • Spring Framework Step by step tutorial

    Hi,
    I'm a Spring newbie and recently completed the step by step guide which was very easy to follow, worked first time and it taught me the basics. The problem I have with it is that it's out of date and seems to be based on Spring 2.0, although claiming to be for 2.5.
    Anyway, I downloaded Spring 3.0.1 got the tutorial app running on that and then set about updating it to conform with 3.0 which I believe I have achieved.
    It's a shame that a guide so easy to follow for a beginner is not kept up to date.
    So, I am willing to update the guide and post it here or somewhere else if anyone is interested.
    Regards,
    Mark Billingham

    I would love to see that updated tutorial.

    I am also new to Spring, although I have been in the software business forever, including 20 years managing production of development tools. There is very little that bugs me as much as trying to learn something where the documentation (including tutorials) no longer matches the state of the software. Usually I just walk away from the package when that happens, but Spring interests me enough so that I am not going to do that just yet.

    While we're at it, how about a tutorial that assumes that you have the SpringSource Tool Suite? Maybe we need to keep the old version around, but some of us have been using Eclipse-based tools for years and just have zero interest in command lines. STS is a very well done package, and the step-by-step tutorial illustrations are clearly from Eclipse anyway. So perhaps it's time to get rid of all the little notes that say "if you are using an IDE..." and just have a tutorial for people who are known to be using STS.

        Hi Calast,
        No problem, but give me a few days to make the changes.
        I have STS, but just used it as plain Eclipse while learning Spring. I think one learns more by not relying too heavily on a clever IDE.

          b_bayarja_d,
          I began with the step-by-step tutorial. As I said it's very easy to follow and it tells you what you need to download, but some of the techniques in it are deprecated in 3.0:

            Well – there’s an open-ended question. I’m probably the wrong person to answer this, but that has never stopped me in the past.

            Despite any negative comments in this thread, the tutorial is quite good. My only complaint with it is that it is not kept up-to-date as the tools change. I'm sure Mark's version will be great.

            There are books out there that cover things well, but in some cases they are even older than the tutorial. I have “Expert Spring MVC and Web Flow” which is good, but it was published in 2006. The tools are being improved at a pretty fast pace, which is a good thing. But it means the documentation is always a step or two behind.

            Like anything else in this world, how hard this will be to learn depends on what you already know. Make sure you know the basics (Java, web apps, JSPs and servlets, MVC design pattern). I think books and tutorials are convenient and inexpensive. There are courses out there, but that only works if you are near where they are being taught.

                The link is a little bit 1yr old. Any updated link?
                Thanks.
