After a decade of rolling out updates and improvements to the famous Spring Tool Suite and the Spring IDE components for Eclipse, a new era of Spring tooling starts today and we welcome you to the all-new Spring Tools 4.

They provide a unique editor-centric experience for working with Spring projects, ranging from smart and Spring-aware content-assist to a unique new way of connecting your source code with and enriching it with detailed information and insights from your running Spring Boot applications.
