Hi! I used to use Spring back around v1.1, then got re-allocated in my company to do .NET development. I'm back and trying to evaluate Spring 3 for some future development projects in my new gig. So this is to say, I'm familiar with the basic Spring paradigm, Java, Java app servers, etc.
So I downloaded SpringSource Tool Suite, thinking this would be a good way to get going quickly. I set up a default workspace, selected New->Spring Template Project, then selected the Spring MVC Project template. I entered in a project name and top-level package name for the project, retaining the default workspace, and clicked Finish. It then created the project.
The problem is that it created it with errors.
There are errors in three files, as shown in the attached Project Errors.jpg. I've also attached the error output from the console in Project Errors.txt (which is a csv file).
I'm guessing that the root cause of all the unresolved references is this:
The container 'Maven Dependencies' references non existing library 'C:\Users\rherrick\.m2\repository\javax\servlet\js tl\1.2\jstl-1.2.jar' VFS Build path Build Path Problem
I'm unsure what to do to get Maven to properly get this jar file. If and when I do, I'm thinking that that will get it to get the other dependent jar files and resolve, for example, the missing Spring references.
Any tips as to what's going on would be appreciated. It seems to me that the point of this tool is to work "out of the box", which it's not doing, but maybe I'm missing something.
