What do you mean by "Spring Hibernate Plugins"? Hibernate is already packaged in Spring, and you mention IDEs so I'm guessing you mean some sort of IDE plugin that does something with Spring and Hibernate. What IDE are you looking for plugins for and what exactly do you need the IDE plugin to do? Generate Hibernate mappings from a database? Newer versions of IntelliJ IDEA and NetBeans have plugins that do this out of the box, and there's a Hibernate plugin to do this in Eclipse.

That's a lot of questions/requests with no real foundation. What exactly are you looking for? What are you expecting it to do?

Everything for Eclipse is always 100% free, even the plugins. The question you are asking is more about how eclipse can install plugins. What version of Eclipse are you using, if something recent, then you can just add the plugin's update site and click a check box.

I am going to move this thread to the IDE forum, where there are much better Eclipse experts to help out.

But you do need to be precise in what you are asking for. I think the big thing here is that it seems you aren't familiar with Eclipse and therefore not quite sure how to ask the precise question.

I hate to contradict Mark, but not everything for Eclipse is 100% free. There are commercial plugins, and even an entire commercial release of Eclipse (IBM's RAD).

However the basic Hibernate stuff is free. Go to, select the "Hibernate Tools" link, and it will help you to download and install what you want.

Hi Deepak,

You can also use NetBeans IDE 6.5 which comes with Spring and Hibernate plugins bundled with the IDE. Download the IDE from here.
Refer the tutorial page for additional help.
