Hibernate, Spring and Struts in Eclipse 3.6 (Helios) [message #551313] Thu, 05 August 2010 17:38 Go to next message

Hello,

I am new to Eclipse, though not to Java.

I have downloaded Eclipse (3.6) Helios and have already executed some Java applications to make sure the IDE is working.

Now, I want to know which version of the plugins for:
a) Struts
b) Hibernate (I downloaded 3.5.4 final but it doesnt seem to work)
c) Spring


I need to download and place them where exactly (somewhere I read I should put the jars under <eclipse/plugins> folder ) for these to work.

Also, there is no <Software Updates> submenu under the Tools menu.

Please help.



Thanks,

Esh

So, you're probably not new to Hibernate, however, I tackle it from an
Eclipse point of view in an article at
http://www.javahotchocolate.com/tutorials/hibernate.html I'll bet what
puzzles you is explained in there. Ignore the stupid bits of the article
and you're there.

:-)


> c) Spring
There are two ways of doing Spring. The first is to download the
plug-ins for Eclipse. I haven't done this, but I think it's the most
common and the most stable. More on plug-ins in a moment...

Second, you could download the SpringSource Tool Suite (STS) from
Spring. If you can get it set up just right, it's pretty cool. I find
that it's hard to get and set up a copy that is stable on either Linux
or Windows, though I haven't tried since the beginning of the year. At
this point, I'm not doing any Spring, but I expect that will change soon.

Always and only install new software (read: plug-ins) using Help ->
Install New Software. There is another option, using the dropins
subdirectory under eclipse, but that's a last-ditch thing to be avoided
as long as you can.

Probably because you were really looking for the Help -> Install New
Software or the Help -> Check for Updates menu items?

You might find it a little bit easier to use the Marketplace (Help >
Eclipse Marketplace) GUI to find and install what you're looking for.
It's a new feature in the Helios release, but is a little better for
discovering new plugins than the Install New Software UI.

Hope this helps,
Eric

Thanks Russell and Eric.

Will try both the approaches and see.

Appreciate it.
