  • Download link broken


    i am exploring technologies and frameworks for a web application project and wanted to give Spring Roo a try.
    However, the download link seems to be broken - in fact, it is not a link at all, it just looks like one.

    Can anyone confirm this?

    Verified. I will notify my contacts at VMware and see if anyone can do something quickly. But for now:

    Do you have a mac? If so, and you're using homebrew (a MUST install software packaging utility) you can do brew install spring-roo and get version 1.2.3.RELEASE. You should also check apt-get if you're a unix developer, although I doubt that the version there is up to date.

    Here is the URL for the software on Amazon S3 for everyone else - it works just by pasting it into a browser:

      I am using several linux distros, no mac here. Downloading Roo now from the provided URL.

      FYI, i am currently sitting on a Ubuntu machine using only standard repositories and an apt-cache search libspring does not show anything for Spring Roo, just the usual Spring libraries .

      Thank you for your efforts, krimple.

        Any time, Niels.

        I wasn't sure about Ubuntu.

        BTW to get you going after you download...

        ln -s <path-to-roo>/bin/ /usr/local/bin/roo

        (or the reverse, I can never remember those things).

        Then when you do a 'roo' command it should come up. Make sure you have your JAVA_HOME set and Maven 3.x installed and in the path, with the M2_HOME variable set and $M2_HOME/bin in the path.
