I came across Spring in Action today and was wondering if anyone has any books on Spring that they highly recommend?

I have the Apress "Pro Spring" book and really like it (http://tinyurl.com/35...­. Note, it covers a fairly old version of Spring, but covers it extraordinarily well. It doesn't go into annotations or some of the newer features, but is a good thorough trek through the core DI/IOC engine and the integration modules (AOP, Hibernate, JDBC, etc.) that existed at the time of its writing.

I see there is a newer 2.5 version of the book out written by different authors that the Amazon review system does not treat kindly.

I am 6 chapters into "Spring Recipes: A Problem-Solution Approach" (http://apress.com/boo...­) and I like the reading style: 1) every concept is truly presented as a problem and solution; 2) generous amount of java/xml to reinforce the concepts without having to have live code running.

The current edition is for Spring 2.5 and therefore teaches both XML and annotations.

A 2nd edition (due for release in August) is updated for Spring 3: http://apress.com/boo...­
