Hello All,

I am working on a project that is planning to use JSF, Spring and Hibernate on eclipse IDE. Is there any way I can make use of dropins folder to download the all the jar files for spring/hibernate/jsf so that I can share the library files or do I have to copy to lib folder.

Thanks.

Welcome to the JavaRanch, Greeshma!

When you start loading up on frameworks like that, it's easier to use a system like Maven. Although Maven takes a little getting used to, one of its big advantages is that it will automatically download all the Spring, Hibernate, and JSF jars you need, even the ones that are required indirectly. The downloaded copies are cached in a local Maven repository and supplied to the Maven build process.

There's a Maven plugin for Eclipse that allows you do do Maven builds and other Maven-related functions from within the IDE.
