"Introduction to the Spring Framework in NetBeans IDE" Tutorial by Troy Giunipero and Craig MacKay
- Framework Support (enables the Spring Framework as an option when creating a new web application)
- Spring XML Catalog (provides Spring related XSD and DTD's to enable XML code completion)
- Integrated Library Management (installs libraries required for the Spring Framework, as well as additional required libraries)
This Spring Framework Module for NetBeans was also used in my JavaOne 2007 Hands-On Lab 1420 "Non-intrusive Java Application Monitoring and Troubleshooting using JMX, JConsole and AOP". And Craig MacKay, author of this Spring Framework Module for NetBeans, and Troy Giunipero have written a very good tutorial article on the module. Refer to this "Introduction to the Spring Framework in NetBeans IDE" tutorial for more details.
