Here you will learn to write your first Spring 4 MVC application. You need JDK 7 or above, Eclipse, Maven and Tomcat server. You first step is to keep these software ready with you.

Step 2: Go to the Directory where want to create the project.

Step 3: Then create the project for eclipse.

Use the following command to create web application in Maven:

mvn archetype:generate -DgroupId=net.roseindia -DartifactId=Spring4MVC -DarchetypeArtifactId=maven-archetype-webapp -DinteractiveMode=false

Check the tutorial: Maven Web Application: Creating web application in Maven 3 for mode details about creating a web application in Maven 3.

Step 4: Go to the eclipse File -> then Import and existing maven project.

Then provide the path of the newly created project "Spring4MVC" and import the project

Step 5: Then imported the project. You will find the project "Spring4MVC" in the Project Explorer window as shown below:

Step 6: Now simply test the application by running it on the Tomcat Server as shown below:

Step 7: So is Deploy the project and massage is Display.

Now type http://localhost:8080/Spring4MVC/ and it should display the default message.

Step 12: Now we will add the Spring dependencies in the pom.xml file


Step 13: Spring version used is 4.0.3.RELEASE as shown below.

Step 14: Now will close the Eclipse 5

Step 15: Now  go to the directory then project is present. The run the following command

mvn eclipse:eclipse -Dwtpversion=2.0 6

This will add the spring jar files into Eclipse project classpath and you will be able to run the application from Eclipse on Tomcat.

Step 16: So will be adding maven literary in to the eclipse project. 7

Step 17: then start in eclipse.


Step 18: so this spring library.

Step 19: Now will create in controller plush (hello word controller). 9

Step 26: then will create the file jsp hello word (file -> new -> jsp).


Step 27: Then we can execute go to the property -> deployment -> add -> java build path Entries -> next -> select all jar file -> finish.

Step 28: to run the application tomcat server. 5

Step 29: so explain how to create in project in maven import in to the eclipse id add this Required dependency in the spring pom.xml file and run the tomcat server.
