IntelliJ IDEA is a complex and self-contained development environment that offers developers and testers features meant to help them optimize the code writing and execution processes, as well as provide varied ways for allowing programmers to stay focused on the task at hand, to avoid being distracted, and to also accurately examine their code performance tests and how effective these are.
Getting started with some of the most attractive features of this tool
This is an application that has smart autocompletion and an IDE that is designed to follow and understand your context and deliver the most appropriate tools for any of your ongoing tasks.
For example, the application's search methods, while writing code, are not only targeting syntax- or expression-related results. Depending on your setup and content, and after the application has indexed your source code, you will be prompted with relevant results related to the code, expressions, and available methods in the current framework/package you are using, tool settings' toggling, list searching options, as well as code analyzing, or available refactoring tools.
Moreover, with on-point shortcuts, if having being provided by your first IDE call with common results when you were looking for marginal, niched actions, you further allowed to use the program's smart action system to find what you're looking for — by pressing the same search shortcut again, you will perform a more in-depth action search.
Cross-platform development, additional supported tools and technologies, and version control
With IntelliJ IDEA, you get a well-structured and ergonomic environment where you can access, from the same interface, a plethora of features. The app enables an overview of multiple version control systems that it gets integrated with, like Git, SVN, Mercurial, CVS, Perforce, or TFS. From inside the program's GUI, you can view and manage branches and issues.
Being a Java-centered editor and IDE, IntelliJ IDEA also provides you with a Java decompiler, database utilities (for editing SQL, running queries, performing live database connections, scheme managing, etc.), Docker support (for managing Docker containers and images), application server integrations (e.g. with Tomcat, JBoss, WebSphere, WebLogic, Glassfish, etc.), test running and coverage tools (for accurate code testing), and much more.
IntelliJ IDEA is a large system that offers full workflow assistance, targets real issues and tries to deliver clever solutions, and manages to integrate smart and intelligent features into a modern, sleek-looking interface.
