    Default What is the best way to learn spring, in your opinion?

    Should I enroll in an online training course? Will a simple book suffice? How did you learn spring? Is it just me or is it complicated?

    That depends on the individual. For me, anything software related has been from books and online articles. It also helps to participate in related forums such as this as you get exposed to a variety of topics and problems. I have yet to view any video or take a course (since college) on anything related to software.

    I entered the Spring world with a combination of a video tutorial session and the book "Spring in Action".
    I would not say that Spring is particularly complicated, it is just intended for an audience that has some experience with complex program structures in OOP and it wants to make things easier for this audience. Spring MVC is a popular solution for companies with a need for a high level security web application.

    Are there any prerequisite topics that I need to know other than Core Java before getting started?

    It depends on what you are trying to do. Spring has multiple modules that each have their own purpose and might have different prerequisites. If you want to go towards Spring MVC you should know Servlets and JSP. Many applications in the post-beginner stage use databases, so some knowledge in JDBC might be helpful as well.
