Spring Tool Suite™ 3

For your convenience, we continue to provide updates and downloads of the Spring Tool Suite 3, the previous generation of the Spring Tools. Spring Tools Suite 3 continues to ship as a customized all-in-one Eclipse based distribution that makes application development easy. The tool suite provides ready-to-use combinations of language support, framework support, and runtime support, and combines them with the existing Java, Web and Java EE tooling from Eclipse. An integrated dashboard in the distribution makes it trivial to install further extensions that add support for technologies such as Pivotal Cloud Foundry, Gradle or Pivotal tc Server.
Support for these distributions is always available through GitHub Issues or StackOverflow tag.

The Spring Tool Suite 3 will reach its EOL in mid 2019.
