For IntelliJ , only the community edition is free. But on checking on the IntelliJ website, community edition it shoes Spring with a Cross instead of Tick. Is IntelliJ not free if you want to use Spring framework ?

Thanks

Well, you can use Spring and the free IntelliJ at the same time... but you don't get as much spring-related functionality in IntelliJ.  E.g. if you do "find usages" for a Java class, the free version won't show you a reference in a bean declaration in a spring.xml fie, whereas the Ultimate version will - because they did extra work to make sure IntelliJ Ultimate knows what those bean definitions mean and how they relate to Java files.  To the free version, a spring.xml file is just a random xml file, whose text doesn't mean anything special.

I am trying IntelliJ for Scala.

When I went to download it ,I saw under community edition ,there is cross instead of Tick for Spring . How is it possible that one may use Spring with IntelliJ where as it shows with a cross ?

It's not that you can't use Spring with the community edition, of course you can, it's that the ide does not offer you any help with it.

Mostly what Mike has already said above. I would suggest the intellij website would be a good place for you to find out the specifics though. Or even better why not take advantage of the 30 day free trial to see for yourself in practice?
