In order to install Spring Integration on another developer machine I would advise using Spring Tool Suite as it’s the preferred IDE for Spring Development on any of the spring modules including Integration.
Download Spring Tool Suite.
Download and Install JAVA.
- Set Paths JAVA_HOME and add entry to path variables
- You can refer to the steps on this page for that https://docs.oracle.com/javase/7/docs/webnotes/install/windows/jdk-installation-windows.html
Download and Install Apache Maven 3.2.3
- Set Paths M2_HOME and add entry to path variables
- Set Paths MAVEN_OPTS
- Test your Java and Maven are installed from command prompt.
There are steps on installation on this link too for more detail on how to do this.
PS: Maven is a Java tool, so you must have Java installed in order to proceed
- Unzip the distribution archive, i.e.apache-maven-3.2.3-bin.zip to the directory you wish to install Maven 3.2.3. These instructions assume you chose C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation. The subdirectory apache-maven-3.2.3 will be created from the archive.
- Add theM2_HOME environment variable by opening up the system properties (WinKey + Pause), selecting the “Advanced” tab, and the “Environment Variables” button, then adding the M2_HOME variable in the user variables with the value C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\apache-maven-3.2.3. Be sure to omit any quotation marks around the path even if it contains spaces. Note: For Maven 2.0.9, also be sure that the M2_HOME doesn’t have a ‘\’ as last character.
- In the same dialog, add theM2 environment variable in the user variables with the value %M2_HOME%\bin.
- Optional: In the same dialog, add theMAVEN_OPTS environment variable in the user variables to specify JVM properties, e.g. the value -Xms256m -Xmx512m. This environment variable can be used to supply extra options to Maven.
- In the same dialog, update/create thePath environment variable in the user variables and prepend the value %M2% to add Maven available in the command line.
- In the same dialog, make sure thatJAVA_HOME exists in your user variables or in the system variables and it is set to the location of your JDK, e.g. C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_51 and that %JAVA_HOME%\bin is in your Path environment variable.
- Open anew command prompt (Winkey + R then type cmd) and run mvn –version to verify that it is correctly installed.
- Now that you have configured Java and Maven you can start up the Spring Tool Suite.
- Open STS by executing the STS.exe from inside the \\Spring-Tool-Suite\sts-bundle\sts-3.6.2.RELEASE\STS.exe
- You may see an error for missing Jre dll files…. You need to add java entry to STS.ini file
- g. -vm C:\Softwares\Java\jdk1.7.0_67\bin\javaw.exe
There is plenty of information on the web and on the Spring website… But I think this video would be good for instructions and I think for a starter this is a useful video – Refer instructions https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GyCR5jRMLi8
Please let me know if you need any help on this.
