In Detail

IntelliJ IDEA is a commercial Java development tool which competes with the free Eclipse and NetBeans projects. It is an integrated development environment (IDE) designed to automate parts of the coding process; to support a large number of different frameworks, tools, and targets; to work with multiple languages; and not to get in the way of the developer’s work. IntelliJ IDEA also does a good job of keeping up-to-date with the Java platform, subject to the expense of keeping current with the latest product version.

A practical guide that will provide you with concepts and clear step-by-step exercises to help you understand and improve your performance. Through this guide, you will be able to extract more from IntelliJ IDEA 12.

This book will navigate through the features of IntelliJ IDEA 12 and present the reader with concepts and tips that will give them a greater understanding of this IDE. Using a practical real-world example, readers will learn to develop one application and use some of the features presented. Through clear instructions, you will learn how to integrate the IDE with your favorite bug tracker, take a look at the refactoring approaches that IntelliJ offers, and will quickly understand and use different ways to navigate through the code.

This book teaches you how to develop a web application and a simple Swing application. The development of this application will help you to understand how to work with IntelliJ's Swing GUI constructor. The book will also provide a simple code as starting point and will show you how to develop some code.
