Books

Iuliana @ 20:51

Hi guys,
In December 2014 I became a technical author for Apress. Since then, I’ve written quite a lot of  books about Spring, one about Java and I will continue writing books until I get bored of doing this. I am currently finalizing the 2nd edition of Pivotal Certified Professional Spring Developer Exam. This special page on my blog was created for the books  I have written and the ones I will write or contribute to because it is the easiest way to convince Google to make me famous. :D

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  and Java as I never had the occasion to do at work. 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 efficient 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 Emails with feedback help me correct small mistakes and update information that was outdated.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!

Undecided yet: Pro Spring, 6th Edition

Yup, it’s happening, even if we do not know yet when Spring 6 is gonna be out. But as soon as Beta is out, I’m gonna start writing it.

January 2020: Pivotal Certified Professional Spring Developer Exam, 2nd edition

It’s almost done, final review is left to be done. There is no public GitHub repo yet. It’s gonna be legen … wait for it … dary! :)

January 2018: Java for Absolute Beginners

Official GitHub Repo: Here you can find the sources used in the book, all of them wrapped up nicely in a Gradle multi-module project. I decided to keep all the sources here and not duplicate the repository to have my own with raw version of the code, and I will use branches to introduce novelties.

December 2017: Pro Spring, 5th Edition

Apress Pro-Spring-5: Apress official repository, where the official sources and the Errata can be found.
Pro-Spring-5th: This is my personal repository, on which I have done a few commits for the sources that will be covered in the book.

January 2017: Pivotal Certified Professional Spring Developer Exam

Apress Spring Core: Apress official repository, where the official sources, an Appendix and the Errata can be found. Follow this repository, I do update the Errata from time to time.
Pet-Sitter: My personal repository 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. This book got a second edition.

December 2015: 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, I do update the Errata from time to time.
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. This book has become deprecated over years, and most of it’s contents are now part of the Pivotal Certified Professional Spring Developer Exam, starting with its 2nd edition.
