I really didnt know where to post this but this is the sub-forum that is closest to pure J2EE I guess this is as good a place as any.
I am currently a student and I know Java pretty well, I am really interested in J2EE but my university refuses to teach it because. I think its a little bit above most students because 90% of the people studying IT are doing it for the money and therefore not really passionate about it.
I just recieved Expert one on one J2EE development before I even knew about spring but it requires some basic J2EE knowledge already.
I was going to start out reading the J2EE tutorial at sun but apparently that teaches some really bad practices (Pet Store anyone?)
I would be really interested in everyones opinion on what is the best path to learning spring?
