Spring in Action: Section 9.1

For some reason, lately I've been picking on Spring In Action, Second Edition. This is due in large part to it being the primary book that I've been reading. I would like to set the record straight before continuing with this next post and say that I like this second edition of Spring In Action by Craig Walls and Ryan Breidenbach. I would go so far as to say that I like it a lot. I've used it for many things, first and foremost for giving me a deeper understanding of the Spring framework. And a natural extension of that has been professionally at work.

That being said, I do want to point out that there is a typo on p.345, Section 9.1, paragraph 1, last sentence in the paragraph reads:

"It might be easier to answer that question by first talking about their antithesis: contact-last web services."

This should read:

"It might be easier to answer that question by first talking about their antithesis: contract-last web services."

I think I've potentially missed my calling as a nit-picky book editor. Perhaps I need to make myself useful and point this out to the book's publisher (Manning Publications)in case they care to correct it.


  1. Hmmm...I found an extra 'r' laying around after I had finished that chapter, but just couldn't figure out where it went. Oh well.

    It's probably a bit too late to make much of a difference with SiA2, but I'll certainly keep you in mind to put our nit-picky-ness to work for SiA3.

  2. Hahaha... you never know who might be checking you out on the web... and you would never anticipate it would be the books author. I would be more than willing to lend out my nit-picky-ness for SiA3.
