  • Where to download Spring ROO Command Line Shell in ZIP?

    Where can I find the Spring ROO Command Line Shell Zip file? Ever since the updates, I cannot download the binary file anymore?

    The links from the site redirect to 404 NOT FOUND.

    Same problem. Building your own Roo from the source code looks troublesome. Where can we get binaries?

      I also have this problem, but I do not get 404. I just run into a link that loops back to itself.

      So I start on this page: https://github.com/spring-projects/spring-roo
      On that page, I see this:


      "These instructions are aimed at experienced developers looking to develop Spring Roo itself. If you are new to Spring Roo or would simply like to try a release that has already been built, tested and distributed by the core development team, we recommend that you visit the Spring Roo home page and download an official release: http://www.springsource.org/roo"

      So I click on that link and it takes me right back to where I was at: https://github.com/spring-projects/spring-roo

      Any ideas? Is there anywhere I can get the binaries?

        The same problem... I think that df123 has described it clearly. No matter which link I follow to download the binaries, I always eventually end up on the GitHub page which only offers me the source code.

        I wanted to start getting familiar with Roo this week, because the articles describe it as a pretty cool technology. But this is really putting me off.

          Hi guys,

          For those that need the latest version, I recommend downloading the SpringSource Tool Suite. Version 3.3.0 includes a subdirectory that has the command line version of spring roo in it. You don't have to use STS if you don't want. I download STS from here:
          http://spring.io/tools/sts/all

          I wish there was an easier way, but this transition to spring.io feels as if roo is a second class citizen.

          Thanks!

            I'm not sure why the 1.2.4 download link doesn't work and will find out but you can download the latest snapshot distribution from http://docs.spring.io/downloads/nigh...hp?project=ROO
            No need to build from GitHub source. Just remember to copy the annotations jar from the annotations directory to your Maven repo as snapshot annotations jars are not in any public repo

              Like prim83, I just learned about Spring Roo and I'm eager to try it out - but now just frustrated at the time I've wasted trying to find the download. Thought I was trapped in some some kind of practical joke where the link to the download page just circles back to the project page. Even finding the Roo forum was not straight-forward from the Roo home project page.

              It's disheartening to realize that 3 weeks after somebody pointed out the the problem, nothing has been done. The web site looks pretty but the work people put into 1.2.4 is just going to waste if nobody can download it.

                Oh... and thanks to hiteshlad for the tip about getting the download out of STS!

              The release 1.2.4 works fine from this link. I'm not sure why spring source made it so hard to find the shell download, all they do is redirect you to the maven dependency link.

                  Ditto to hiteshlad's comment.
                  I went for the STS work around and I would suggest it for those beginning with Roo who like me want to learn from the bear bones up.

                    Same hell here.

                    It seems we're going to lose my beloved Roo.

                    Let's do the trick, instead of using the URL that Alan Stewart said, the one for the nightly builds, try to find the one for the releases.

                    I've had some luck and this URL contains all the releases: http://docs.spring.io/downloads/nigh...hp?project=ROO

                        Would it be a temptation of SpringSource to obligate people to download STS to use Roo?
