Spring Tools 4 for Spring Boot
Spring Tools 4 is the next generation of Spring tooling for your favorite coding enrivonment. Largely rebuilt from scratch, it provides world-class support for developing Spring-Boot-based enterprise applications, whether you prefer Eclipse, Visual Studio Code, or Atom IDE.
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.
Navigate your Spring code at the speed of light
Understanding and quickly navigating source code is essential for coding. The new Spring Tools 4 understands your Spring-Boot-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.
Smart Code Editing
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.
Runtime Information In Your Editor
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).
Not working with Spring Boot yet and looking for the old Spring Tool Suite 3?
Not yet working with Spring Boot, but looking for tooling for your regular Spring projects? As long as the all-new Spring Tools 4 do not support non-boot Spring projects, please refer to the previous generation of Spring Tools for Eclipse, also known as Spring Tool Suite 3 or Spring IDE, you should look at the "Spring Tools 3 Add-On" entry in the marketplace here: https://marketplace.eclipse.org/content/spring-tools-3-add-aka-spring-tool-suite-3
