Spring-Framework Software Update Site
I was wondering if there is an update site for the spring-framework, spring-security and other spring components?
I know there is an update site for the spring tools suite (http://www.springsource.org/STS-inst...n-instructions), but I'm looking for the actual framework bundles.
Like many eclipse developers I'm using a Target Definition (http://wiki.eclipse.org/PDE/Target_Definitions), which contains different update sites e.g.:
The target definition is used to gather all the bundles which are need to run or build (used on hudson) an application.
Most eclipse project provide an update site right at the download page:
For now I have made our own update site containing the spring bundles we need. But there are always complications, like attaching the source to the bundles.
Is there already a site which I did not find? Do you consider to provide a site or is this no option at all?
This would make it a lot easier for larger eclipse/spring based application to use and update the spring framework.

Flavio, the eclipse update site is an eclipse-specific concept and does not exist for runtime JAR/libraries for spring frameworks.
However, most developers use maven to get updates -- however maven is much more than just way to get updates to spring JARs, as you may already know.
You can of course simply download updates of spring software from our website.
Hope this helps.
