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.
