Spring IDE for Eclipse provides plugins for the Eclipse platform to ease working with Bean Factory configuration files for the Spring Framework. It contains a Spring project nature (with an incremental builder for validating Spring bean config files), an image decorator (which decorates Spring projects and all Spring bean config files), a Spring view (which allows one to browse Spring projects and their Spring bean config files, including bean properties), and an editor showing a graph from the beans of a single config file or a set of config files.


Nearly one year and six developer previews later, this release is the final version of a major update. It brings an improved user experience (e.g. by integrating with Eclipse's project explorer) and adds support for Spring 2.0, Spring Web Flow, Spring AOP, and Spring JavaConfig.
