This is pretty much a book from a beginner for other beginners. There are several things I would change in this book:
1- The way it focuses so much on relying on the IDE even to make XML changes instead of explaining the actual XML structure you should understand if you plan to use any editor other than the one used by the author
2- The style of "how to do it" followed by "what happened" ends up repeating steps a lot and makes the first pass just like a boring set of rules rather than a book that is trying to teach you new concepts
3- The vague introduction of AngularJS towards the just to give an example of AJAX calls was really unnecessary and likely to confuse anyone that doesn't know angular already
This book helped me to get started, set up the development environment and start a new web application. It also touches on many topics and gives some useful background on MVC web programming.
However I think the material is not well balanced. I often found that it devotes much attention to simple concepts that were already clear to me from the example code, while it left many questions unanswered or it quickly skimmed over them.
There are two topics that in my opinion are essential in web development, that are hardly addressed in the book. The first is how to hook up the web application to a real database, rather than some simple in-memory objects. The second is the question of security, in particular authentication and access control.
For any code book to be good, there should NOT be any minor mistakes such as these. Especially you expect your reader to FOLLOW EXACTLY what you do. I almost decided to quit reading the book because of the small mistakes/errors made by this book.
I was a Java developer for twelve (12) years, but for the last seven (7) years I have been an IT Manager and have not coded a single thing. I was beginning to think I was just to far out of the game to understand everything that has changed.
Amuthan G. writes in a manner that is very easy to understand and I love the way he has structured the content. The "Time for action..." sections where you actually write the code being explained is followed by the invaluable "What just happened?" explanation of every step in the process. He also includes "Pop quiz" sections where you can see how well you have picked up the concepts explained. There are also "Have a go hero..." sections where Amuthan G. gives you some items to add to the code, but does not give you exactly what to write. This way you truly get an idea for how well you understand the material.
I highly recommend this book to everyone who needs to clearly understand the Spring framework at it's core.
Great job Amuthan G.
