I’ve recently discovered IntelliJ Idea (thanks to Julien), the most powerful IDE I’ve ever seen.
IntelliJ can manage completion and syntaxical coloration inside strings representing jpql, aop pointcut, regex. Ant & Maven are natively supported and CVS/SVN/GIT too, and many other things …
I can speak about this IDE and its benefits but I would like to speak about IDETalk, a feature of IntelliJ which allows connection to jabber networks. Now, I can chat with my google talk account through IDETalk, directly from my favorite Java IDE …
To configure your google account on IntelliJ :
1/ Click on the IDETalk button at the right
2/ Click on add account and configure your google account
3/ You can now chat with your contacts 😉
Some persons can find this feature to be useless but I found that to be very fun.
Thanks JetBrains, thanks Julien 😉
