I put together a quick walking tour of Spring 3.1. The code is available on my GitHub account. It runs on a Servlet 3 container, and demonstrates how to build a completely XML free (no persistence.xml, no web.xml, no orm.xml, etc.) application that uses Hibernate 4, Spring 3.1, and Spring MVC 3.1. It shows how to build everything from a transactional service to a RESTful endpoint.
