Getting a Spring distribution

As with Hibernate, you must download the full distribution version of Spring from its website: http://www.springframework.org. The file, which downloads as a .zip or .tar.zip file, contains separate JAR files as Spring libraries in the dist/modules subdirectory. (The number of JAR files depends on the version of Spring.) Each JAR file contains classes of a particular Spring module. For instance, spring-aop.jar contains all of the classes you need to use Spring's AOP features in your application. Although not all of these JAR files are required when you are using Spring with Hibernate, you can simply add all of them to the project lib directory.
