    Do I need to install Spring framework separately for my Eclipse?

    lxiscas

      Hi, Guys:

       

          I am completely new to Java Enterprise, and I am supposed to use Spring framework and hibernate. tools: JDK 7, Eclipse, Maven, Git, etc.

       

         I have a question that may be silly to you guys: I want to try my first Spring project, on training video (using Spring 3.05), it asks me to download Spring framework 3.05, and I wonder if I already installed Maven plugin on my eclipse, do I have to download Spring framework? as I got a rough idea that Maven already supports Spring. However, I cannot find such a library support in my project property. Someone just said I need to follow M2E instruction, Could any one give a hint?

       

      thanks a lot!
