Spring Live is done, but constantly improving

I've talked to a couple of Java developers lately that asked me "Sooo, when are you going to be done with Spring Live?" I was quite surprised to hear this because I finished it in October. I guess folks just aren't used to the constantly updated thing. Or maybe SourceBeat needs to do better marketing?

Regardless, Spring Live has been a blast to write. I was definitely hesitant when I signed up to write it b/c I didn't know much about Spring. But a year later, it seems to be getting good reviews and holding it's own when compared with the other Spring books. I'm also starting to see some traction from the book itself - not only in book sales, but also in training and invitations to speak at conferences.

If you're looking for Spring training, don't hesitate to contact me or SourceBeat directly. Also, the Spring Developers offer Spring training as does Rick Hightower.

Yeah, we're still working on getting Amazon to put Spring Live on their other sites. In the meantime, you can buy it from - which has free worldwide shipping in March!
