  • Using Github to get the Spring MVC 3 Showcase

    I am new to Java, Eclipse, and Spring. I have the latest version of STS installed. I am trying to follow the instructions on this web site to get the "SPRING MVC 3 SHOWCASE" Gibhub project:

    The problem is that there is one final screen in the wizard then they have in the EGit doc's.


    I simply cannot figure out how to get the Finish to become active.

    If you have the latest versions of STS installed, there is an easier way to get the MVC showcase project into your workspace: just open the dashboard, take a look at the "Example Projects" section and select the mvc showcase project. That imports that example project directly into your workspace.

    The way that Lars Vogel is referring to in his tutorial works if you want to import an Eclipse project from a Git repository. Since the mvc showcase project is not already an Eclipse project but just a plain Maven project, you need to go the Maven way of importing that project into your workspace (if you want to keep it connected to the Git repository to update it from time to time maybe). There are two ways to do that:

    1. clone the Git repository manually onto your local machine and import the project as existing Maven project
    2. install the m2e-egit connector and import the project as "Existing Maven Project from SCM", as described here:
