This tutorial provides a step-by-step guide how to setup the development environment on a Windows 7 (Homepage) operating system. Please note that while you can follow this tutorial even if you are using a different operating system, some of the steps shown here may not be the same for all operating systems. For example, a Linux operating system (Homepage) does not install programs under the “Programs Files” folder like a Windows operating system does. On the other hand, the configuration of the SpringSource Tool Suite is the same irrespective of the operating system. Furthermore, irrespective of the operating system, the order of how things are done is the same for all operating systems.
