- Eclipse 3.5 (Galileo) support and platform specific installers for Windows/Mac OS X/Linux
- Support for milestones of Spring 3.0 including XML editing and validation, support for @Configuration and @Bean annotations
- Support for milestones of SpringSource dm Server 2.0, RFC66 web modules and SpringSource Bundlor integration
- Integration of Spring Roo for rapid application development
- Optional integration of the new alpha Groovy Eclipse Plugin
I’m happy to announce that we just released the final version of SpringSource Tool Suite 2.1.0; the first GA version with major enhancements since making STS freely available.
The release comes with brand-new installers for all supported platforms and bundles latest versions of SpringSource tc and dm Server as well as Spring Roo. Additionally you can choose between distributions based on Eclipse 3.4 and the recently released 3.5 aka Eclipse Galileo.
Because we’ve seen lots of interest in the new Groovy tools we also offer a bundled download of STS and the Groovy Eclipse Plugin.
We’ve made a lot of progress since 2.0.0.M3, adding a number of new features upon which the users tracking the nightly builds have already given us some excellent feedback. Take a look at the M4 release notes if you’re interested in seeing everything that we’ve been working on. Please keep your feedback coming as comments on our blog, in the forums, and on JIRA.

support for Enterprise Service Components
For the last couple of months SpringSource has been actively involved in developing the next version of the Eclipse Groovy Tools. The initial goal has been to evolve them from where they are into a highly optimized environment for the key developer tasks of code development, building and testing. Ideally the experience when working with mixed Groovy/Java projects should feel as good as it does for pure Java projects in Eclipse.
In April of this year, SpringSource made generally available our first release of tc Server, version 6.0.19.A. The product has been a huge success, in part due to being based on the tried and true Apache Tomcat base which many, many people (and more and more all the time) are using every day. As outlined in an earlier blog post when we introduced 6.0.19.A, we’ve extended that tried and true core with extensions that make it easier to use and provide key production oriented extensions to Tomcat. And we’ve surrounded that solid base with the enterprise, production class management and monitoring capabilities of the SpringSource management products.
Last week, Mark Fisher introduced you to the new restructured and simplified Spring Integration samples that came out with the new release of Spring Integration 1.0.3 and so far the feedback was very positive.
Beside restructuring and simplifying existing samples we’ve introduced few new samples with the goal of demonstrating some of the benefits of running Spring Integration on OSGi-based platforms.
In this blog using very trivial, yet powerful example we’re going to look at some of the benefits of Spring Integration and OSGi when used together to address dynamic nature of today’s enterprise.
A set of updates to the SpringSource dm Server Admin Console are available in the nightly builds. This also shows the use of Plans and the RFC66 Web container. There are two new features available, the first lets you look at any service dumps that the dm Server system may have produced and the second lets you explore the state of bundles within OSGi.
A dump may contain many dump items such as stack traces, thread dumps, depending on the initial cause. Dump items are available for viewing in the Admin Console, simply select the dump of interest on the left and then the dump item on the right and it will be displayed.
Dear Spring Community,
I am pleased to announce that the Spring Integration 1.0.3 release is now available.
In addition to the links above, check out this blog post to get up and running with our new-and-improved, self-contained, Maven-enabled samples!
Spring Integration Lead
Spring Integration 1.0.3 is now available. You can find links to the download, reference manual, and more at the Spring Integration home. This release includes quite a few changes, but in this blog, I’m going to focus on one in particular. Starting with this version, the samples are fully self-contained and Maven-enabled. That means you can download the distribution, go into the ‘samples’ directory, run ‘mvn install’ and then import the projects into a Maven-aware Eclipse instance, such as the SpringSource Tool Suite. Here’s the step-by-step breakdown…
