I just downloaded STS and I'm beginning to wish I hadn't bothered. I have to learn Spring pretty quickly and I saw on SpringSource.org that STS was the best way to create Spring Projects. So I created a Spring Project and created a Java class and in there I put a reference to ApplicationContext (like page 1 of Spring books tell you to do). But I cannot import it. Well, if I added whatever jar it is in to the Build Path I guess I would be able to, but do I / should I really have to do that? I've seen a could of articles that say to create a Maven project. I can't believe that I would have to do that. I'm not interested in Maven and don't particularly want to have anything to do with it. Any help greatly appreciated.
