Anyone else are having trouble or success with the Web Flow Spizza application in chapter 8? Please share your experience.

I just built the svn code from the second edition just to get a feel for the Spring Pizza version of this app and its functions, though it's built with Web Flow 1 which is supposed to be way different from Web Flow 2 and I needed to make some changes. See -> http://www.manning-sandbox.com/thread.jspa?threadID=20373&tstart=0
Spring 3 needs other kind of set ups and ideas too, but that transition is a little bit easier I suppose.

I certainly don't get why source code can't be available with the MEAP. Wouldn't the collective effort improve the quality of the source and ensure it would be compilable? I think Manning should premiere good code just as well aspages written. Pages and code should go hand in hand, no?
