c:java instead of c:Program Files. You’ll save yourselves an enormous headache trying to figure out why Windows is not interpreting the command lines properly if you just remove the cause of the problem. Bloody Bill!
  1. Download Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers 3.4 Ganymede from the downloads section of the Eclipse web site.
  2. Extract the eclipse-jee-ganymede-win32.zip into c:Javaeclipse.
  3. Create a desktop shortcut to the Eclipse executable, for easy launching.
  4. Download Tomcat 6.x from the downloads section of the Tomcat web site. You will need to get the base (Core) pack and not the windows installer pack. The windows installer pack does not include some of the command-line scripts for launching Tomcat.
  5. Extract the apache-tomcat-6.0.18.zip into c:javaapache-tomcat-6.0.18 then rename it to c:javatomcat.
  6. Launch Eclipse.
  7. On a new install of Eclipse it asks you where you want to put your workspace. We are going to place it in c:javaworkspace because the spaces issue will be a problem if it goes into c:Documents and SettingsDavid Newcombworkspace.
  8. Next we are going to install our Spring IDE plugin, full instructions on how to do this are on my blog page entitled Eclipse 3.4 Ganymede and Spring IDE 2.0.6.

  1. Select File->New->Dynamic Web Project

  4. Also keep the Configuration set to Default Configuration for Apache Tomcat v6.0.
  5. Click Finish.
  6. In the Project Explorer, right click on the new project and select Spring Tools->Add Spring Project Nature.

  2. We want to use the Tomcat server when we use our new project, so we can set the Server project to be a dependency of our new project. This will mean that when we open our project the Server project will open automatically.
  3. Right click on our project and select Properties.
  4. Select the Project References option and check the Servers project.
  5. Click Ok.
