Why isn't there enough documentation on MVC, Spring Bind, Validation?Page Title Module
Yes I know that it's possible to use DWR or dojo, but it doesn't seems to me that Spring is supporting them officially (I searched the term "ajax" in Spring documentation - I found zero matches) and I have some doubt about correct use of ajax in Spring MVC (i.e. the "ajax called methods" should be placed in the controller or directly in the service?).
In my opinion it's not really the responsibility of Spring to support a particular AJAX framework/library, rather it's the responsibility of said framework/library to integrate with Spring. The only concern I see that Spring should have is making itself available to integrate and play nice. In light of this, I can't tell you enough how well DWR integrates with Spring. Configure the servlet, expose some service methods/classes, add some imports to your JSP and you're off an running.
I didn't realize a post I started could be so busy!
I do agree it is hard sometimes. I have a book, the Spring site, google. I have Pro Spring and everyone says it's a great book. I follow the example but sometimes they do not go through every little detail. I went to their site looking for the full code, but I don't see all the examples from each chapter.
Basically, I can follow an example just fine, but examples are not exactly what you might need. It's then when I go looking on how to do what I need that it's hard to find the answers it seems.
