What is it?
MyEclipse for Spring includes a new set Spring development editors, Spring Annotator, that simplify the annotation-based development of Services, Controllers and Web Services.
While most Java developers understand the technical use of annotations, it's not always clear which annotations are available for a specific technology and when a particular annotation should be used. For example, the Spring Framework has excellent support for annotation-based programming; however, there are a lot of supported annotations. Some annotations are applicable to all Spring stereotypes, while other annotations are only applicable to specific stereotypes. Spring Annotator help developers understand what annotations are available and in what context the annotation should be used.
MyEclipse for Spring 8.6 is the first release to include the Spring Annotator feature. The initial set of Spring Annotator includes:
- Spring Annotators - For configuring Spring stereotyped components, including Controller, Service, Component and Repository
- JAX-WS Annotators - For configuring JAX-WS services
