Spring is in the air,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Spring in Action (Paperback)
I started programming in Java about 8 months ago. I'm from a C# .Net background. I use Spring everyday on my current Java project at work. It is a very powerful product, which encourages programming to interfaces, and using dependency injection, and unit testing. I was a bit apprehensive in buying this book, mainly because the previous edition received better reviews, while this one seemed be slated by a few people. I asked a few people at work who have both versions, and was recommended to get the most recent version. I am still working through the book, but so far, it is a very easy read! I find it very understandable, coming from a different programming language background. I am a lot more productive in my work, and my code is lot cleaner. I give it 4 star because I haven't finished it yet.
