  • Working with Spring-IDE(Eclipse Plugin)

    Hello All,
    Has anyone tried Spring development in Eclipse yet? If so, how to make sure that the spring plugin is installed properly? I did update the Spring Plugin-ID and can see nothing more than Add Spring Project Nature under File menu in Eclipse? is there anything that I should be looking for to make sure that the plugin is installed properly? I would appreciate if anyone has tutorial for developing a sample Spring Application in Eclipse. thanks.

    Open the Eclipse About dialog and look for a feature with the Spring Logo. You can click on the logo to get the feature details.

    Sorry, currently there's no tutorial available. We are busy developing the plugins, so no time for documentation :-(

    For the time being you can have a look here:

    http://springide.org/project/wiki/SpringideInstall
    http://www.exadel.com/exadelstudio/h...ingEditor.html

    Maybe someone can jump in and start writing a tutorial here http://springide.org/project/wiki/SpringideGuide :-)

    Cheers,
    Torsten

      Poor man's SpringIDE tutorial

      I am also trying to get into the SpringIDE. Since I could not find a tutorial, I am currently doing the step-by-step Spring example at http://www.springframework.org/docs/...p-by-step.html - first "as is", and then through Eclipse/SpringIDE (I am using a sysdeo Tomcat project with Spring nature). This provides the key elements of a Spring application and forces me to think how to do it in Eclipse. Next I plan to go through the more complex AppFuse example (https://appfuse.dev.java.net/).

        Peter,

        I was thinking about a tutorial on running Spring's JPetstore sample application (part of the Spring distribution) with the combo "Eclipse + WebTools + Spring IDE + Tomcat". But I didn't find the time yet.

        Maybe you can jump in and create the wiki page http://springide.org/project/wiki/SpringideTutorial from your experiences working with Spring IDE

          I second the need for a tutorial in how to use Spring IDE. There is only one option when you right click on the project and that is add Spring Project Nature. And when you click on new and go to SpringIDE hoping to find like wizards for creating Beans or ApplicationContext xml files etc, there is nothing there. I am failing to see what the point of thise IDE is if it does not do any IDE stuff! Shouldn't the first and foremost work of the community be writing up the SpringIDE How To guide? I would gladly do it and for free of course if I knew my way around Spring IDE!

            I had a technical question on why one would need to create and Ant configuration file themselves...does not that beat the whole purpose of having an IDE? I know Netbeans for one is an Ant based IDE. Can't we just create a new dynamic web project, import in the Spring and Hibernate jars, write an app like we would and then just deploy it on to the Tomcat server? When you create a new dynamic web project you are given the choice of choosing what your destination server is going to be anyway...so why go through the hassle of writing a huge and quite time confusing ant script anyway?
