SpringSource Tool Suite(STS) Installation & Configuration:

 

At the time of this post, the latest version available form SpringSource is STS 2.2.1. Since its built on top of Eclipse (version 3.5 – Galileo), you will need to have Java installed on your computer. Refer to Eclipse IDE category posts for details on this part. It requires JDK 5 and higher and is supported on Windows, Mac & Linux operating systems so far. I will be posting ‘Exploring Spring Framework’ series developed using STS, so this is a starter post for it. Moreover, its worth trying such a comprehensive Spring development tool which has been made available for free recently.

As such downloading and installing STS is straight forward. All you have to do is to visit the SpringSource STS  site and follow the instructions. Yet, here is step-by-step instructions and other relative information for doing it. 

 

Follow the steps below to download & install STS:

  • Before downloading STS, make sure that your system meets these pre-requisites. As you can see, you need to have JDK 5 or higher installed in your system. [Refer to Java Installation & Configuration post for details].

Spring Application Example:


Now that we have installed SpringIDE in Eclipse, let’s explore what we can do using Spring IDE and also create a Spring application. By integrating Spring IDE, we now have a Spring Project Wizard in the New Project option of Eclipse Workbench. We will start our Spring application with a demo project namely springide-demo.

This will help in getting started with our detailed tutorial ‘Exploring Spring Framework’ Series.

 

1. Creating a Spring Project:

  • Open the New project dialog box by choosing File Menu > New and Choose Spring Project below in the Wizard.

  • This will create a new Spring Project. SpringIDE provides visual indicators in the Package Explorer view which will be shown in Java Perspective. Note the S symbol upon the project name. This is to indicate that this is a Spring project.
