Best Java IDE: SpringSource Tool Suite

There are abundant choices of Java IDEs. My work on Java is mainly Spring web application development. Obviously, my choice goes to: SpringSource Tool Suite.

SpringSource Tool Suite is basically Eclipse IDE Java or Java EE edition with the following additional features preinstalled:
The only additional feature I must install afterwards is Subclipse for Subversion integration. I wonder why SpringSource left it out (intentionally?)

Of course, there are alternatives:

Hendy, thanks for your feedback about STS.

RE bundled Subversion integration: due to licensing restrictions of SVNKit (a component that this usually required for Subclipse or Subversive) we can't bundle Subversion integration plugins with STS.

We are currently working on this and will hopefully be able to bundle Subversion support soon. You may also find the following JIRA interesting:

STS-718: As a user, I want to have SVN support bundled with STS

New commercial offering to the Spring market include MyEclipse for Spring and MyEclipse Bling (for IBM WebSphere shops). Both products use proprietary technologies that allows for Spring code-assist, scaffolding, auto code generation, multiple project bootstrapping (like iphone, Flex, Spring MVX, GAE, more...).

Thanks for the post. :)
