VMware vFabric tc Server Integration for Eclipse

The VMware vFabric tc Server Integration for Eclipse adds server adaptors for the VMware vFabric tc Server to the Eclipse JEE tooling. It makes it easy to deploy apps, start, debug and stop your tc Server, create new instances with various configurations, all from within Eclipse.

It comes with Spring UAA (User Agent Analysis), an optional component that help us to collect some usage data. This is completely anonymous and helps us to understand better how the tooling is used and how to improve it in the future.

It also comes with the SpringSource Dashboard is an optional component, which brings you up-to-date information about SpringSource-related projects as well as an easy-to-use extension install to get additional tooling add-ons, like the famous Spring IDE or the Cloud Foundry Integration for Eclipse.
