A lot of errata
Dear Members and Authors,
I am starting to read this book and I am really suprissed about how many errata I have found and I am note english spoken.
Just at the begining of the book, the FIRST EXAMPLE, pag 40
The source code assumes existence of class/interface: WeatherData that is not defined. An experience user, could assume it is a bussiness object corresponding to the weather data, but there is no mention to that. I am not sure at this moment, but in the book there is a mention to WeatherService, when they want to talk about WeatherData.
I have found a lot of evident errata, that demostrate no so good depuration process of the book. Also the source code examples are not enumerated so it is complicated to reference to a given example, like now I have to tell about the pag, no example number.
I am going to expose the list of errata I have found to the page 182
pag 51: Instead of -serviceLayer.* should be services.*
pag 55: "noStaticFactory" the quote is in bold face, the same for "getTestBeanInstance"
pag 78: 3th code example (yo see, there is no other way to reference to this source code) db.properties -> jdbc.properties
pag 87: Last paragraph getMessage() variant() -> getMessage()
pag 187: 1th paragraph after the text box, some part of the text is in courier and should be in normal font.
I hope I am not going to find so much errata into the end of the book
I have read the ProSpring book and I have found just a few errata and the examples are more consistents, it is more a book for showing Spring by examples and this book is more a Spring Reference Manual, but any way you should take care about so much evident errata.
