Spring Tool Suite (STS) and Groovy/Grails Tool Suite (GGTS) 3.0.0 releases

Free Resource

We are proud to announce that the newest major release of our Eclipse-based developer tooling is now available. This is a major release not only in terms of new features but because of other serious changes like project componentization, open-sourcing and the fact that for the first time we are making multiple distributions available, each tailored for a different kind of developer. 

  • Check out the release announcement on Martin Lippert's Blog.
  • 100% Open Sourced – All STS features that were previously under a free commercial license, have been donated under the Eclipse Public License (EPL) at GitHub! 
  • Intelligent Repackaging -  Repackaging the product itself makes identifying what tools you need, and getting started with them much easier.   In the past, Groovy/Grails developers had to install several extensions manually into Eclipse  to get started.  Now there are two full eclipse distributions, one targeted at Spring developers, the other at Groovy/Grails developers – just download, install and go, no assembly required.
  • Componentized projects:  Componentizing allows installation and configuration flexibility – developers can install components individually into their existing, plain Eclipse Java EE installations if they wish, preserving their hard work of configuring their Eclipse IDEs just the way they like them.
