Spring in Action, Fourth Edition continues the practical, hands-on style of the previous bestselling editions. Author Craig Walls has a special knack for crisp and entertaining examples that zoom in on the features and techniques really needed.
The Spring framework is required knowledge for Java developers, and this edition brings readers up to speed with Spring 3.1 and then highlights some of the new Spring 3.2 features such as asynchronous Spring MVC Controllers. It also covers testing support for Spring MVC controllers and RestTemplate-based clients which enables a richer form of testing for controllers and clients without having to fire up a server or hitting an actual REST API—in other words no-network involved.
