For Java/JEE development, I am using IBM Rational Application Developer v7.5.4 (RAD) and IBM Rational Software Architect v7.5.4 (RSA). I think RAD/RSA v7.5.4 uses Eclipse 3.4.2. Not sure though.
Could you please clarify below questions:
1. Is Spring IDE(that we install as Eclipse Plugin thro' Eclipse Update site) and SpringSource Tool Suite (do we install STS as a Eclipse Plugin installation on top of IBM RAD/RSA v7.5.4) same ? If not what is the difference between the two in terms of installation/setup on top of an Eclipse installation like IBM RAD/RSA ?
2. I want to integrate Spring IDE support with IBM RAD/RSA. I have read quite a handful of posts on the issues involved in Spring IDE integration with IBM RAD/RSA.
Could you please tell me what is the right process of installing Spring IDE support with IBM RAD/RSA v7.5.4 ?
Is it through Spring IDE update site http://springide.org/updatesite/ ? If so will this update site install Spring IDE on IBM RAD/RSA v7.5.4 without any issues ?
Do I have to use SpringSource Tool Suite (STS) as a plugin installation on top of IBM RAD/RSA v7.5.4? If so what is the right process for it?
