Books

Iuliana @ 20:51

Hi guys,
In December 2014 I became a technical author for Apress. Since then, I’ve written two books about Spring. I am currently working on the 5th edition of Pro Spring, but it has not been decided yet if it will get published or not. It all depends on my ability to respect deadlines and providing good content. Nevertheless, I decided to create a special page on my blog for the books I’ll write or contribute to because I have received a lot of emails with questions so it’s better to gather all those answers here, for everyone who needs it.

I’ve put a lot of effort into writing these books and I enjoyed a lot writing them, because I got to deep dive into Spring as I never had the occasion to do at work. The company I currently work for, does not use Spring and the books provided the occasion to keep my knowledge of Spring alive and kicking. I truly believe that Spring is the best framework for writing Java applications at the moment. I really enjoyed writing the books, even if my writing style was modified to be more professional by the Apress editing team. I really hope you enjoy reading them and they will help you not only learn Spring, but also get a basic idea of how tools work together to help you create beautiful and capable code. ;)

Also, I want to thank all of you who bought the books and all of you who sent me emails with feedback. Your emails with praises for my work make my days brighter and they are a very good reason for me to keep writing. Emails with feedback help me correct small mistakes and update information that was outdated. I welcome the help to improve myself and the books, to make sure correct information is provided. And also, good luck on the exams to all of you!

Pivotal Certified Spring Web Application Developer Exam

Apress Spring Web: Apress official repository, where the official sources, an Appendix and the Errata can be found. Follow this repository, because I am now working on a new Spring Book and sometimes I find things that I missed or misinterpreted when writing this book so I update the Errata constantly.
Personal-Records and Book-Code: My personal repositories with raw sources I’ve been developing while writing the book. There are extra branches with XML and mixed sample configurations. Those are unstable branches that do not compile fully, but the examples are correct and the modules do work in isolation. I maintain these sources myself and update them from time to time. The plan is to upgrade them to Spring 5 and Java 9 as soon as I find the time to do so.
