I'm still waiting for the remaining chapters, but as long as they haven't been published yet I've a voting right right?
I realize the release date is slated for may 2010 so I doubt my voice will be heard but.. for me personally I would appreciate it if the author would supply the ajax examples together with spring (mvc), not necessarily in the book but even in accompanying examples would be truly magic..

Re: Spring MVC
Well, I'm not exactly sure what you'd be looking for in the examples. With Ajax, it doesn't really matter how you operate on the server -- as long as the request results in the expected response, it doesn't matter whether the server uses SpringMVC, or Struts, or Front Man, or even uses Java at all.

Anything you would do on the server using SpringMVC is a pure SpringMVC issue and doesn't really have much to do with jQuery or even Ajax.

The server-side code that comes with the examples is just a thin veneer of JSP and PHP files that "fake it". It's well beyond the scope of the book, or the example code, to provide a proper multi-tiered example application for the server-side of the equation.

If you'd like some help with SpringMVC issues, I'd recommend joining JavaRanch and posting questions in the App Frameworks or JavaScript forums.
