Spring MVC and Spring Boot with Angular.js

1. Download STS, there are two ways to use spring tools. First, eclipse with its plugins,
go to eclipse marketing place. I didn’t recommend using raw eclipse with spring plugins,
because during I develop, I find eclipse with plugin may fail to work.sometime, it may reinstall every time when eclipse restart.
I highly recommend to download STS whole toolset form https://spring.io/tools/sts. Once it is downloaded and unpacked, it will be used as eclipse.

2. Maven is mainly project management tools. Two important concept.
Parent POM and Child POM, in parent project, it has pom.xml which will contains child project pom.xml as module, while child project will also reference parent project in its POM.xml
