The Spring Integration Graph View packaged with Spring Source Tool Suite (STS 2.5.2.RELEASE) is brilliant.
The xml configuration for Spring Integration tends to get a little involved over time, the graphical view helps with visualizing the configuration well. Any high level gaps - no listener on a channel etc(bridge to nowhere?) will stand out in the graphical view -
I have faced one issue though and I have heard of one other in the forums:
- If I compose multiple flows into a single Spring configuration file (using import tags), the Graphical view cannot display the composed flow.
- Different Spring Integration components can be created using annotations - these are also not reflected in the Visual view.
