Cannot find jars required by tutorial like spring.jar, please help
I found a nice tutorial that clearly lists everything I need to get a working AOP program going that does something similar to what I want. The problem is, when I download it from this website (the 155mb one) I get tons of folders and I cannot find anything, not even spring.jar. I cannot find a "lib" or "dist" folder that the tutorial mentions
I must be making some noob mistake, can anybody help me out? I feel like I am taking crazy pills

That link does not contain a spring.jar in the "dist" folder. I keep seeing links saying that certain jars should be in folders that do no exist. I don't understand, some of those links, like the one I first gave are very recent...

On this site go to Downloads etc. Pick the version of Spring you want and download the zip file with dependencies.
Extract everything in the zip file to a folder.
In that folder, you will see something like the following (this is from spring-framework-2.5.6.SEC01):
You want the stuff in lib.

Also, you'll find spring.jar and spring-sources.jar (the source jar) in spring-framework-2.5.6.SEC01\dist.

Thanks for pointing this all out, it all makes more sense now.

I have downloaded spring-framework-3.0.2.RELEASE-dependencies.zip
It does not seem to have the structure mentioned in earlier posts, in particular I can see no dist directory at all.
The top level of the zip file starts with:
It seems as though this archive contains the dependencies but not the spring framework itself.
Unless I am being very silly ...

Try looking for spring.jar in dist, not lib.

I cannot find a dist directory in the zip file.

I think since the vrsion 3.0 Spring doesn't use the same file architecture.
Now the zip file is a lot of folders which package name like...
There is not a spring.jar anymore
That's pretty annoying!!!
Can someone tell me what's the new name for this jar??
