how to install spring stuff to eclipse

SOLUTION FOR : Eclipse Juno/ Spring 3.1.x

Eclipse/Spring experience is still a nightmare from beginning.Whatever you do, nothing seems to work from beginning.Amount of polluted useless resources for Spring Framework is enormous.
In just 10 minutes i had 3 problems:
* I created new project and decided to delete,but ...Eclipse encouraged exception.
* I trying to update ,but it fails
* Install new software Spring  (and this note is about it) didn't go well either,but it was my fault...

Good start is it? Anyway let's back to topic

STORY:
I have new project to do and it requires
so i used url for http://springide.org/updatesite
I choose minimum stuff to install
and I see error like :

"Cannot complete the install because one or more required items could not be found.

SOLUTION:
If you see error like that it means you using wrong url
These days correct url for Eclipse JUNO is :
http://dist.springframework.org/release/IDE
