Frequently Asked Questions - Supported Technology
What version of Spring is supported?
The GA version of MyEclipse for Spring supports both 2.5.x and 3.0.
Is Spring-WS generation supported?
While we have done some work with Spring-WS, we aren't planning on dedicated support for Spring-WS in the initial release. MyEclipse for Spring will initially support generation of JAX-WS services using CXF. With that said, MyEclipse for Spring scaffolds and generates application components using the standard Spring stereotypes/annotations. In lieu of dedicated Spring-WS support, the Spring services (@Services) can be easily configured to be exposed as Spring Web Services.
Is this compatible with SVN plug-ins for MyEclipse?
Yes, absolutely. You can use SVN, CVS, or whatever version control system you like.
Is there Maven support in MyEclipse for Spring?
The GA version of MyEclipse for Spring has full support for Maven.
Is there support for Spring Batch in MyEclipse for Spring?
No, there is no support for Spring Batch at this time.
Does MyEclipse for Spring support BlazeDS and Flex-Spring development?
Yes. The only difference between a Spring web application and Flex-Spring application is that Flex (instead of JSP and controllers) is used for the web layer. While the web layer may be different, the service and data layers are typically the same. While MyEclipse for Spring doesn't have any specific functionality related to Spring-Flex, MyEclipse for Spring can handle most of the bootstrapping for a Spring-Flex application. Furthermore, MyEclipse for Spring can scaffold major portions of the back-end of a Spring-Flex application (i.e. service and data layers).
Can JSF/ICEFaces be integrated?
Spring supports the JSF framework, and MyEclipse for Spring provides tooling for both Spring and JSF. Both the Spring Web Flow editor and JSF Visual Designer in MyEclipse for Spring support the development of web applications based on the JSF framework.
