Spring Framework

The Spring Framework provides a comprehensive programming and configuration model for modern Java-based enterprise applications - on any kind of deployment platform. A key element of Spring is infrastructural support at the application level: Spring focuses on the "plumbing" of enterprise applications so that teams can focus on application-level business logic, without unnecessary ties to specific deployment environments.

The framework also serves as the foundation for Spring Integration, Spring Batch and the rest of the Spring family of projects. Browse the repositories under the SpringSource organization on GitHub for a full list.

.NET and Python variants are available as well.

Downloading artifacts

See downloading Spring artifacts for Maven repository information. Unable to use Maven or other transitive dependency management tools? See building a distribution with dependencies.


See the current Javadoc and reference docs.

Getting support

Check out the Spring forums and the spring and spring-mvc tags on Stack Overflow. Commercial support is available too.

Issue Tracking

Report issues via the Spring Framework JIRA. Understand our issue management process by reading about the lifecycle of an issue. Think you've found a bug? Please consider submitting a reproduction project via the spring-framework-issues GitHub repository. The readme there provides simple step-by-step instructions.

Building from source

The Spring Framework uses a Gradle-based build system. In the instructions below, ./gradlew is invoked from the root of the source tree and serves as a cross-platform, self-contained bootstrap mechanism for the build. The only prerequisites are Git and JDK 1.7+.

check out sources

git clone git://

compile and test, build all jars, distribution zips and docs

./gradlew build

install all spring-* jars into your local Maven cache

./gradlew install

import sources into your IDE

Run ./ or read as appropriate.

... and discover more commands with ./gradlew tasks. See also the Gradle build and release FAQ.


Pull requests are welcome; see the contributor guidelines for details.

The Spring Framework is released under version 2.0 of the Apache License.
