  • Problems with internet activity in STS

    I'm new to Java and STS, so it's likely I'm doing something dumb. I've been trying to work with STS for a couple days to create a new Spring MVC Template project. Whenever I try to use a Spring Template Project and then choose Spring MVC, it hangs when it tries to download the template. I tried a workaround I saw somewhere saying that when it fails to exit STS, and manually copy the file and update an XML file to say it's stored locally. And that worked - allowing me to create a project, but when I try to run the default project it fails because it doesn't have a dependency.

    This has me wondering if the problem of not being able to connect and get the template could be affecting me in other ways - that it can't get dependencies perhaps as well?

    Another example is when I go into STS to Help - Check for Updates and it slowly gets up to 50% and then hangs. I finally get this error:

    Some sites could not be found. See the error log for more detail.
    Unable to connect to repository
    Connection timed out: connect
    Unable to connect to repository
    Connection timed out: connect

    Is there something I need to do to allow Eclipse to connect to the internet? I've tried downloading the current version as well as the 3 milestone release and the previous version and it's doing the same thing in all of them.

    Solved! I tried two things on this page: - deleting the cache and then adding = true to the sts.ini file. It's working great now.
