Where and How to download Spring Framework JAR file (Spring 4.0 or Spring 3.2) without Maven, Gradle

One of the easiest and oldest ways to run a Java program which depends on an external library or framework is to download dependency JAR files, put it on the classpath and then run the program by creating a Main class with the main() method.

So, when the build tool like Maven and Gradle comes, everybody stopped downloading the JAR file manually.
