Spring Roo - questions

I have been working with Spring for quite sometime. But have NOT got any chance to hear about or work with Spring Roo.

1. What exactly is Spring Roo? Is it a plugin for Spring Core?

2. Why should I need Spring Roo?

3. Is Spring Roo applicable only for web app development in Spring? Can I use it for other modules like Spring Batch and Spring Integration?

4. How does it really work or make the developers life easy?

5. In the springsource website (www.springsource.org/roo), one of the features say that "Totally compromise free". What does that actually mean?

6. Can I get it integrated with my eclipse or netbeans IDE? or is it applicable only for SpringSource IDE?

Thanks in advance.

spring roo is a RAD (Rapid Application Development), it's just a tool to help you reduce the time of setting up your java web project, configuring your spring configuration, writing your DAOs and a lot of cool stuff.
of course you don't have to use it or you can use it just as a first step in setting up a standard spring web application and for configuring database and the like.
