Common framework


Spring reality (5th Edition)

It’s average!

It is not recommended to read as an introductory book. If you want to get started, you can find some Chinese books or videos to watch. This book is just like an overview of spring. There are only some basic concepts and examples, covering all aspects of spring, but they are not deep enough. As the author wrote on the last page, “learning spring is just the beginning.”.

Spring 5 Advanced Programming (5th Edition)

Tool man!

The new features of spring 5 are introduced in detail, which is not good. In addition, I feel that the translation of the whole book is a bit bad and a bit boring. There are many contents in the book, so it is suggested to use it as a reference book.

Spring boot programming ideas (core)

It’s a little wordy, but the principle is clear.

Spring boot parsing is not suitable for beginners. The book is very thick, and the explanation of knowledge points is too wordy and procrastinating. However, this book explains the internal principles of springboot very clearly.
