  • How to install Springsource Tool Suite

    Hi all,

    I downloaded SpringSource Tool Suite from springsource.com/node/407 for windows, but could not find any installation instruction. Any advice?

    Thanks in advance

    Hi,

    you just need to extract the downloaded ZIP archive and launch the eclipse.exe contained in the extracted folder.

    Let me know if that does not work for you.

      - the ZIP archive for windows appears to be password-protected (no password required for MAC OS X installation)...

        chl007,

        please don't use Windows' build-in ZIP program as this has problems handling long filenames. Please use another tools such as 7-zip (free) and you will be able to extract STS with no password...

            Hi

            I have installed STS. But when I write a Simple Hello WOrld Spring program in teh IDE, it gives errors at compile time. This is because the spring.jar is not in the classpath.
            I started by creating a spring project only. The spring.jar is missing from the STS download as well. Please advise how to setup the project in the IDE.

            Thanks

              Hi

              Any clues please? How can we setup the IDE for just a simple Hello World application that can output a name on the console (using public static void main() )

                      eros,

                      I just download the springsource-tool-suite-2.3.0.RELEASE-e3.5.1-win32.zip and there is no eclipse.exe inside the

                      C:\springsource-tool-suite-2.3.0.RELEASE-e3.5.1-win32\springsource\sts-2.3.0.RELEASE

                      instead....

                      STS.exe
                      STSc.exe
                      As you may have figured already there is no eclipse.exe in STS anymore. Please launch the STS.exe instead.

                      i've tried but also hard to find for language pack for chinese and japanese environment...
                      Sorry, we don't offer any language pack for STS.

                          I can't get STS to start up on my Windows 7 host with 8Gb of memory. Galileo works just fine (separately).

                            russellbateman,

                            can it be that you installed a 64-bit version of STS and want to run this on a 32-bit JDK or vice versa?

                            Christian

                              Yeah, my Windows host is 64-bit and I downloaded the 64-bit STS, I think.

                              Yup, that could be it. There was some confusion when I linked a JDK to STS. I'll look into that. In the meantime, what's best practice? 64-bit STS with 64-bit JDK or just say no to 64-bit and run 32-bit all around? We're still in the days of not everything is 64-bit.

                              Thanks for the quick response.

                              Come to think of it, I can't find a 64-bit JDK, only a 64-bit JRE. Where do I look?
