Spring Tools 3 Add-On for Spring Tools 4
End of life: This Spring Tools 3 Add-On for Spring Tools 4 is no longer maintained or updated. The final and last release is 3.9.22, which corresponds to the Spring Tools 4.14.1 release for Eclipse 2022-03. There will be no updates to newer Spring Tools 4 or newer Eclipse versions anymore. Please upgrade to Spring Tools 4 instead.
Attention: This add-on pack provides additional components from the previous Spring Tools 3 generation to be installed into an Eclipse with Spring Tools 4 already installed. To avoid installation issues with overlapping features, this will NOT install everything from the previous Spring Tool Suite 3 into a plain Eclipse.
The Spring Tools 3 contain the previous generation Spring tooling for Eclipse, mostly focused on working with Spring apps configured using XML and providing validation support for various additional Spring projects, like Spring AOP, Spring Webflow, Spring Integration, etc. This can be installed as an add-on into the Spring Tools 4 for Eclipse as well as into a plain Eclipse installation, if you still have projects that are not migrated to Spring Boot and/or you would like to continue to use features of the previous Spring tooling generation that aren't yet been part of the all-new Spring Tools 4.
