Roo, Love at first sight

It's 1 a.m and i decided to give Spring Source new product http://www.springsource.org/roo a try and i must say i loved it. I find so pain to setup a normal spring based project from ORM to web layer and those configuration files, test setup, web.xml, urlrewrite.xml, applicationContext files and you know the list and of course dependency management with pom.xml. With Roo it was just few commands and everything is ready in few minutes!!

But everything is not like a ultimate love of life, it requires AJDT editor otherwise it will show compiler errors which involves something like user.persist() and AJDT editor doesn't support code completion.
