Manning's Spring Roo in Action
When Ken Rimple and Srini Penchikala's Spring Roo in Action was released, I was eager to read it. The book covers all the basic information thoroughly: what is Spring Roo? What does new development look like with Spring Roo? How should developers iterate on longer projects with Spring Roo? Also the book introduces the 80% cases well: how to develop a service tier and domain model (complete with unit tests), how to build a web application, how to configure and run integration-tests, etc.
The book really comes into its own in the details and the depth, though. As you work through the service tier development, you’ll wonder about NoSQL, and you’ll wonder about the supported styles for your services and repositories - this book will be a useful guide for solving these problems. One day, you may find yourself staring at a Roo console without a helpful command for your particular requirement or you may have some use case that isn’t already well served by the wealth of add-ons. Here too, this book provides pragmatic instructions for extending Roo for your own unique demands.
The book is divided into several parts, each starting slow and simple and then gradually escalating in depth and detail.
Readers and users of all experience levels will find something of value in this book.
