Tailored for developing enterprise applications using Spring Framework and Spring Boot, the new generation of Spring Tools provides world-class development support for your Spring applications. Our tools have deep knowledge of Spring built in.
The all-new Spring Tools can be used in various coding environments, ranging from Eclipse as a full-featured integrated development environment to Visual Studio Code and Theia as lightweight code editors. Continue to use your preferred environment and add great Spring tooling to it.
The new generation of Spring Tools is largely built from scratch, incorporating modern technologies and developer tooling architectures. It runs in separate processes, is built with performance in mind from the start, and knows about the latest Spring technologies.
Spring Tool Suite 4 makes it easy to get started. A direct and easy-to-use integration of the Spring Initializr and the famous Spring Guides allows you to go from nothing to a running Spring Boot app in seconds.
Understanding and quickly navigating source code is essential for coding. The new Spring Tools 4 understands your Spring-based source code and allows you to quickly get an overview and navigate to the important pieces of your Spring apps. Finding Spring elements and navigating to them has never been easier.
Code completion is a critical part of working with source code. The all-new Spring Tools 4 provides smart code completions for the Spring elements in your app.
Spring Tools 4 now bridges the gap between your source code and running Spring Boot applications. By taking advantage of the Spring Boot Actuators, we enriched the source code with detailed information from the running app (e.g., exact bean wiring information, conditional reports, configuration, details, and more).
