I was reading through some Spring API JavaDoc and stumbled upon a recommendation embedded in the JavaDoc to read a free pdf by Mark Richards named "Java Transaction Design Strategies". I have read every page of this 117 page book and can attest to the extraordinary usefulness of reading this book to better understand transactions.
I feel this so strongly, that I suggest that Mr. Walls add a recommendation in his book to download this free book as part of learning Spring transactions. The link to download this book for free is: http://www.infoq.com/minibooks/JTDS

Re: free pdf by Mark Richards named "Java Transaction Design Strategies"
I agree 100%. The section explaining Tx isolation is the best I've read

Re: free pdf by Mark Richards named "Java Transaction Design Strategies"
I just re-checked where I heard about this. The recommendation is in section
"9.10. Further Resources" of the Spring 2.5 reference documentation:

Find below links to further resources about the Spring Framework's transaction support.
• Java Transaction Design Strategies is a book available from InfoQ that provides a well-paced introduction
to transactions in Java. It also includes side-by-side examples of how to configure and use transactions
using both the Spring Framework and EJB3.
