Ubuntu Development Stack

Ubuntu system must be operational with a connection to the Internet for this procedure to be successful. There is a way to establish this development stack without being connected to the Internet but that approach will be covered in another blog article.
The first item in the agenda is to install lamp on the stack.
A useful link for explaining the steps for this activity may be found here.
Next we should install the JDK.  I found helpful information here.  Basically this is accomplished by a one line SUDO command.
Install the Eclipse IDE by issuing the following command “sudo apt-get install eclipse” (minus double quotes) and the command line and press enter.
The next step is to install the Spring Source Tool Suite the download information may be found here.  Follow the instructions to make sure STS is configured properly.
When this is complete you now have a superior Java development platform with a few added whistles and bells.
