Spring Certification Study Guide / Notes, Resources and Mock Exams

3 07 2010

I am currently working on my Spring Core Certification (via the Grandfather stream). As part of my studies, I have created a set of study notes which I want to share with the community.

The notes can be found at http://springcert.sourceforge.net

These notes are very closely based on the Spring Reference Document (2.5.6). I have tried to summarize the “important parts” of the reference documentation, while excluding the parts that I do not think will be in the exam. This is just my “best guess” based on comments in forums, mock exams and official Spring resources.

I have linked each section back to the Spring Reference Document (so you can easily refer back to the original documentation)

I have also included links back to the Certification Objectives and tried to highlight key concepts and likely exam questions.

As my studies progress and my Spring knowledge increases, I will update these notes.

Your feedback would be greatly appreciated. Please register suggestions, defects and improvements for these notes via Spring Certification Discussions.

Enjoy and good luck with your certification!!
