Spring IDE for Eclipse project provides Eclipse plugins to ease working with Bean Factory configuration files for the Spring Framework.
It contains a Spring project nature (with an incremental builder for validating Spring bean config files), an image decorator (which decorates Spring projects and all Spring bean config files), a Spring view (which allows one to browse Spring projects and their Spring bean config files, including bean properties), and an editor showing a graph from the beans of a single config file or a set of config files.

Project nature which support a list of Spring bean config files and sets of bean config files (aka beans config sets)
Incremental builder which validates all modified Spring bean config files defined in a Spring project
View which displays a tree with all Spring projects and their Spring bean config files
Image decorator which decorates all Spring projects, their bean config files and all Java classes which are used as bean classes
Editor (read-only) which displays a graph from all beans defined in a single config file or a config set
The following features are currently under development:
Graphical editor for Spring Webflow configuration files
XML editor for Spring beans configuration files
