As of STS 3.5.1 Spring Roo support and the Spring Roo runtime are installable from the dashboard rather than being directly included in STS.

With this post we'd like to re-introduce the Eclipse-based support for Spring Roo so you can take Roo's productivity to STS without having to leave the development environment! You can build a new application and deploy it to STS in just a few minutes.

We will go step-by-step in order to help you get started quickly:

1.Open your STS IDE.

2. Open STS dashboard.

3. Click on Extensions bottom tab and search Spring Roo.

4. Install Spring Roo (current production release)

5. From here on you can just follow the steps of the installation wizard. Along the way you need to review and accept the license agreement and restart STS to finalize the installation.


6. After restarting STS you're ready to work with Spring Roo.

We hope you enjoy this new service. We'll continue to improve the Spring Roo support in future releases of course.

As always we very much value community feedback!

For more project specific information please see the Spring Roo Project Page | or see Spring Roo on GitHub

As always, you'll also find Roo on Twitter - either follow @SpringRoo or just include #SpringRoo in your tweets.
