What is covered in Spring Roo 1.1 Cookbook

As a follow up to the previous post, here I've detailed what information you'll find in Spring Roo 1.1 Cookbook and for what information you need to refer to other resources.

AspectJ ITDs - Information about AspectJ ITDs and how they are used by Spring Roo is covered in extensive detail. You'll recipes related to Push-in and Push-out refactoring also.

Spring framework and Maven - The Spring Roo Cookbook assumes that you have enough understanding of Spring and Maven. If not, then please refer to Spring reference documentation or any other tutorial or book.

Technology or framework information - Spring Roo Cookbook attempts to give a crash course in JPA, GWT, Flex, Spring Web Flow, Spring Web MVC, Selenium, Solr, and other technologies for which base add-ons are provided by Roo. If you have never used these frameworks, Spring Roo Cookbook woul;d still be an easy read for you. If you are looking for details on these technologies or frameworks, then it is recommended that you refer to some other resources.

OSGi - You'll find some introductory information about OSGi, as this forms the heart of Spring Roo add-ons

Roo-generated code information - This is at the heart of Spring Roo Cookbook. It attempts to cover all the Roo-generated code and configuration information. You'll find information about maven plugins that are configured by Roo in pom.xml file, AspectJ ITDs, Java source code, and so on.

Add-on development - Chapter 7 shows the code generated by Roo for simple and advanced add-ons. It should give you a solid starting point to create your own add-ons. This should give enough information about internal workings of Spring Roo.
