Class 'org.springframework.http.converter.ResourceHttpMessageConverter' not found - how to correct?

Question!

Eclipse STS is reporting I have problem with my spring project.

It's a fresh project generated from the Spring Web MVC Project Template (File->New->Spring Template Project->Spring Web MVC ).

When I create the project it has no problems - it's only once I modify the pom (by adding the hibernate dependencies) that STS then picks up the spring problem.

Strangely if I revert the pom the problem remains.

Also I can run the project on a spring tc server and all works correctly.

Any ideas how I can satisfy this problem report?

The project generated files that required SpringFramework 3.0.3, but the pom specifies SpringFramework 3.0.1, causing the error message

Class 'org.springframework.http.converter.ResourceHttpMe ssageConverter' not found.

I updated the pom.xml to

<org.springframework.version>3.0.3.RELEASE</org.springframework.version>

which solved the problem.

Let maven do the copying - should not copy individual files yourself and break the pom.



It is only part of the Spring WEB 3.0.2 build.

You can see it yourself in SpringSource's repository:
