How to debug Spring MVC Application

How can we debug Spring Application or Spring MVC Application?
I have commons-logging.jar. But don't know how to use it?
Or is there any other alternative to step through to debug my application by setting breakpoints.

I am using Spring Tool Suite.
Please help.

STS is built on Eclipse so the debugger works the same way. You can see this tutorial for an overview

The main difference is you may not be running a java application but rather a web app. To start TC-server click the 'Start the server in debug mode' button. It looks like a bug and is right next to the green play button in the servers tab in the lower left corner of the screen.
