First of all it's weird to me that they even call it "Legacy" projects. So because it isn't Spring Boot it's legacy? Whatever. Anyways, The templates for Spring MVC seem to be terribly outdated. Choosing a new Spring MVC Project results in a Spring 3.2.2 project using Java 5. It says the url for the template is http://dist.springsource.com/release/STS/help/org.springframework.templates.mvc-3.2.2.zip. I can't seem to find the url to use a more up to date template. Can anyone point me in the right direction? (and no I don't mean a link to download IntelliJ lol). I am using Eclipse Neon 3.
This question is more about Eclipse that Spring so I've added it to the IDE forum.
Sometimes these plugin tools are written and never updated again. Probably a question for the Eclipse team, or whoever wrote the template plugin you're using. If you do ask them, let us know what they say.
