"Java development made enjoyable "

What do you like best?

Compared to eclipse or netbeans this is light years better, nice interface, customization is a breeze, has mercurial and git integration for default. Just for the syntax highlighting and error management is a worthwhile inversion. Git Cloning is made in seconds, you just enter the url and it's cloned in a few seconds, this is really useful when you want to start something from an open source development and you are not sure what to try, so you can download it, build it, test it and then decide. With other IDEs that could take at least 3 times as much.

What do you dislike?

Price tag is a little high, totally worth it though.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Consider buying the All Products Pack is a really good deal if you develop more things beside java

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I need to develop java apllications for our clients to connect to a server, and this is just the best IDE out there.

"IntelliJ Idea - The Best Java IDE"

What do you like best?

I like that the IDE has an amazing auto-suggest system that allows me to type a few letters and automatically pop up what I wanted. This saves me plenty of time when programming and allows me to write programs much quicker. Another one of my favorite things about IntelliJ Idea is that it comes with a market of plugins that add features to the IDE.The plugins are designed to make programming much more efficient.

What do you dislike?

It is difficult and a pain to switch JDK versions. I wish there was some sort of built-in function for easily switching project JDKs. There have been many times that I have had customers asking for a specific Java version after we had already started working on the project. It is very frustrating going through the steps to change the Java version of the program. A 'switch project JDK version' would be very helpful to us!

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would highly recommend this program if you are needing a good IDE for Java development. This works great for standalone Java application development and Android development. It comes with Gradle/Kotlin built in and has many features to make maven easy.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

IntelliJ has allowed me to program quicker and tidy up my code. I have had more customer satisfaction since I switched to IntelliJ due to neater code.

"The best IDE out there for developers"

What do you like best?

IntelliJ Idea is very intuitive in its design and saves a lot of time of a developer with its amazing features. Its code-completion feature in particular is brilliant in that it gives correct suggestions most of the time. It's like IntelliJ IDEA understands what you want to write in your code. Real-time code inspection is another feature worth praising. Another thing that I really like about IntelliJ IDEA is how it allows you to install some very cool plugins to take the customization to the next level. Debugging is really simple with IntelliJ IDEA. And I like the way it gives warnings for a lot of possible errors. The Git integration works very smoothly as well. The same cannot be said for some of the other IDEs.

What do you dislike?

The software is resource-heavy. It does a lot of stuff in the background. But it also takes a lot of memory for all that. Also, I did not find any MySQL plugin which was really good at understanding MySQL scripts and giving proper error messages. The tooltip feature and documentation is really nice, but the community support can definitely be improved. Also, the enterprise edition is expensive.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are into serious software development in Java, Android, Groovy or Scala, you must give IntelliJ Idea a try. You should definitely try the Community Edition before switching to Enterprise Edition, though. There are a lot of features that are available in the Community Edition too that you would definitely want to try before upgrading.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

IntelliJ IDEA is used extensively in our company by developers. Every software company needs a good IDE for development, and since we use mostly Java, using IntelliJ IDEA was a no-brainer. This software has helped a lot in increasing productivity of the developers. Personally, I too find that this is much better than Eclipse.

"The best IDE for java developers"

What do you like best?

If you are developing some software and it includes you must use IntellijIDEA. This tool is developed for java developers and it covers all the areas where java is used. You can create and develop web applications, mobile applications, or just simple front end applications. It provides integrated web servers where you can build and deploy you web applications. Moreover, if you want to manage your database the application has integrated database management tool where you can connect to your database and manage all the needed operations on the database.

What do you dislike?

In the last updates of the application it takes too much time to initialize the application and it takes around 5 mins to be available to use. Moreover, if youa re opening some other application the indexing process takes a lot of time sometimes it is not successful even if you waited an hour.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you need to change your appearance install Material theme which is very nice tool for customizing your look and feel.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As a developer I am using this tool and I am ver satisfied with this tool, because it has all the needed tools for the java developer and there are a big community which creates a lot of new plugins for this tool and it makes my job easier.

" A very powerful tool for the lover of java language and development in this language."

What do you like best?

Beginning to develop in java Intellij Idea helped me with the integration of many tools and keyboard shortcuts that turned out to be a huge help in the development of applications, this included during my university studies as in the day to day of the work activity. In addition to being a very intuitive and configurable tool to the taste or to the preferences of the developer.

What do you dislike?

The most striking or the most debilitating of Intellij Idea is that it uses a lot of memory, so in some computers it is impossible to install it, and in others it consumes so much memory that some applications stop working even the same Intellij Idea.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

For new users my recommendation is that they take the most out of the benefits to this powerful tool since with it they can learn a lot in the development of applications and in a more intuitive way than with other tools, for the users of Intellj Idea that follow enjoying it and using the latest updates as they are always helping us even more or facilitating the development even more.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The generation of codes by templates and high integration with Hibernate. Currently I use Intellij Idea to make web applications through the use of hibernate and it is much easier to see the database in the same intellij, next to the source code.

Can be used for Java, Kotlin, Groovy, Scala.

What do you dislike?

It is a decent IDE it dose not have any disliked features but It takes a bit more time in starting up, but that's not a problem for most of you because it is a pretty decent IDE.The ultimate edition is costly,they provide very short free trial.It requires good space and ram in your computer,otherwise it will be a bit slow

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Yes I would definitely recommend it to others because it is better than many java IDE's ,it offers a great user interface and makes coding easy and fun.But it won't perform as effectively on lower-spec computer models, a high amount of RAM and CPU processing power is required to perform better.The community edition is pretty decent and provides good accessibility of the product.The ultimate version is paid and provide full access to the product.It provides a good real-time code inspection . Go for it, It is an amazing product and will always help you to code better and provide good interface with less code errors.It's auto code completion type features will save lot's of your time.It helps a lot in organizing and optimizing the code better.Go for it,its the best IDE for java till date.

"IntelliJ IDEA, simple yet robust."

What do you like best?

This IDEA upon using for over a year from converting from eclipse, is a great IDE to use for very large projects to simple academic or learning products as well. I find this interface to be great as it is also used with PyCharm which is also a product from this same company. All your integrations and plugins and external resources are a breeze to install with this IDE.

What do you dislike?

There are not many dislike features with this IDE. It can be very slow to load upon initial boot up of the software, but overall usage is not usually effected. I run this as well as other software development tools simultaneously and it is pretty decent.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

This IDE is a great piece of software on any type of computer you have.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I found that integrating third party plugins or external API's are a simple task with IntelliJ. If you build very large projects with java you can be more thankful of an IDE that makes this simple.

"The Java editor to beat."

What do you like best?

IntelliJ's interface design and theming capabilities is among the best out of all Java editors in the market, and the amount of features it has for Java development is just mind boggling. The thing that makes it really stand out however is the best in class customer support. Should you ever get stuck with anything, the support email and hotline is quick to reply and solve problems.

What do you dislike?

Despite all its power, Jetbrains can be quite resource intensive and pretty difficult for beginners to pick up. Also, its interface can sometimes be so functional it feels cluttered, again making it an intimidating tool for beginners.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Read the official documentation, it can be a quite daunting piece of software!

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Working in large Java projects is a big challenge, mainly in that it makes code refactoring and code navigation super easy.

"If you want to create apps for Android, just use IntelliJ IDEA"

What do you like best?

I'm a Java and Android developer for years and i've been using about three IDE during this time. None of these IDE are focused on the development of Android applications, you have to install third-party plugins. This does not happen with Intellij IDEA because it is an IDE focused mainly on the development of mobile applications in android.

One of the things that I liked most about this IDE is the auto-completion function that is very accurate compared to others that tend to show you wrong suggestions. I also liked its interface and theme by default, simple but nice.

More positive things from Intellij idea:

- Multi platform (Windows, Linux and Mac support)

- Great debugger focused on Android applications

- Great Git integration

- Import projects works like a charm while we had issues with other IDE importing certain projects.

- Fast and good looking IDE

- Open source and free

What do you dislike?

The only drawback I have found for saying something is that the installer is a bit heavy.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are an Android application developer I recommend that you give this IDE a chance, I have tried most of the IDE for Android and it is above all its competitors.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With Intellij IDEA we have improved our productivity since working with this IDE is powerful but simple and we save a lot of time. It also allows us to save costs because using Intellij IDEA we do not pay licenses of any kind.

"Excellent development tool"

What do you like best?

Very easy to use, complete tool for software development does not lack anything you can develop your product without problems with this ide. saves the code automatically as soon as you type something is to say if there is a low light or the PC is turned off, your code will remain safe without having to do anything else

What do you dislike?

A bit heavy and requires payment to possess the best features of the ide.

The time of the license lasts very little for what is paid I think they should extend it a little more by version because there are more pleasant versions than others Difficult to say something bad about the product if you could say something bad is the time to start the product from the desktop.

Additionally, a lot of waiting time to load projects that exceed a certain amount of weight should be some way to reduce that time

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Possible update in which extra tools are added such as debugear javascripts directly

and improve programming interface when choosing servers for the deployment of application ,

Some tool to edit the code of another person faster than the current one for a better team work in a software development project would be very useful for a project leader due to my experience in the use of the software

without more to say I think that with these recommendations the software would be much more complete than what is already excellent product

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

developed products for companies of the Venezuelan state and international companies of the same optimal technological solutions

"A great IDE for JVM platform applications"

What do you like best?

Its compatibility with lots of JVM based languages including Scala and Kotlin.

Smart hints for fixing compiling issues.

Easy-to-use debugger interface.

IntelliJ is ubiquitous in the industry as long as they use some software that's Java based.

Android Studio is based off IntelliJ. Many of the plugins works out of the box.

The community version is open source.

What do you dislike?

Slow performance. It's not snappy at all. It takes much longer delay to respond than a native application because it's running on JVM. I don't think I should ever need a Core i9 to power this thing. Programming should focus on the program itself. Also I dislike the default font/colorscheme. It doesn't look cool. It's a pain to look at. Sometimes when I am working on a Gradle/Maven project, I get lost navigating the directories IntelliJ has created for me.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

There're not so many choices other than the IDEA. It's the state-of-the-art IDE for Java.

It would do much better if it's running natively on dev machines. Also, the direction of Visual Studio of Microsoft is worth taking.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Implement scalable internet services with Java and Java EE APIs. Writing programs in Scala. I deal with a lot of complicated Scala code. The integration works very well. Perhaps not as good as Kotlin but I would say the integration is usable.

I also realized that its integration of git is very convenient. It reminds me of what is not committed yet.

"Productivity booster"

What do you like best?

IntelliJ IDEA is one of the best IDE for software development.

It senses your needs and automates the tedious and repetitive development tasks, so you can stay focused on the main part of the project.

It offers great features such as git (Integrated Version Control Systems) that helps you easily work in a team on the same project and a wide variety of supported languages like Java, Kotlin, Scala, Python, JavaScript etc. and frameworks. And it is also good for web and Mobile application development. It provides the wide ranges of the shortcuts that actually saves a lot of time. I really love working on it.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing to dislike about this IDE. But it takes a lot of space in RAM. Not a problem if you have a more than 8GB RAM.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Overall, This is an awesome IDE. I always recommend this software, because its speed, smart code completion and stability, compared with any other tool.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is easy to use, great UI and having a great enviroment for programming.

"Excellent IDE for Java Programming"

What do you like best?

IntelliJ is a necessary requirement for anyone seriously involved in Software Development. It speeds up the process of our workflow massively and makes coding an extremely quick and enjoyable task. It eliminates the tedious side of coding as it corrects obvious faults with your code and highlights errors. Many elements are colour coded and can be changed based on your preference.

The user-interface is extremely well done and there’s a range of different themes, I personally use the Night Owl Theme. This is another great thing about IntelliJ, it allows for external plugins to be installed for further customisability.

With Java being the central programming language used at our company, this makes IntelliJ, one of the best IDE's available on the market.

What do you dislike?

Many of the processes on IntelliJ can be quite demanding on a regular computer or laptop. It won't perform as effectively on lower-spec computer models, a high amount of RAM and CPU processing power is required to perform optimally.

There is if course a solution to this problem if you do have a low-spec computer, intelliJ allows for you to disable some features which you don't use, which is another advantage!

Recommendations to others considering the product:

One of the best IDE's available on the market right now, it offers a great experience when programming in Java. It includes a bunch of useful functions and tools to improve workflow. There is a trial available and a discount for students so I would recommend using it for yourself and see if it improves your workflow.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We've definitely realised that the warning messages, suggestions and tips that IntelliJ IDEA provides causes less errors in our code. This results to our overall productivity improving vastle and consequently writing more and better code. Our standards of coding have also improved significantly and it allows us to create great Java projects.

"An intuitive IDE for your every need"

What do you like best?

Where should I begin? If you're a coder, you'll know the struggle of being restless and needing to have coffee and just sitting there mindlessly like a zombie blurting out code. IntelliJ IDEA changes all of that. With it's nice User Interface you won't be blinded by light late at night or early in the morning. It's auto complete feature is a godsend, Now you're errors will be solved before they're even made. Out of all the IDE's I've seen, this one takes the trophy by far.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes it is a bit slow if you're using an old machine but nothing too bad or much of a problem.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If the high price doesn't concern you and you're an aspiring coder who is looking to do more and improve your coding skills, go for it. It's a great piece of kit and you'll wonder how you ever lived without it.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It makes us get out more code, more efficiently with less errors.

"A great IDE for developers"

What do you like best?

IntelliJ IDEA is used by all the aspiring developers in our organization to develop code. It reduces time on a large scale. To develop effective code and being an enterprise licensed product , it has unique and useful features in its arsenal which are not present in other IDE'S like Eclipse for example.

What do you dislike?

Although it is great and far ahead for Java development, it is behind for developers who use other coding/programming languages. It isn't that much of a light IDE so on a slow and weak system it can be a real problem and you'll have to disable most of the features.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are a Java developer, I'd recommend you check out IntelliJ IDEA. If you program in other languages you should still check it out although it may not be for you if you aren't a Java programmer.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In IntelliJ IDEA, Code debugging in Java is much easier. The most remarkable feature is by far the code hinting, it is; very smart, saves time, and an amazing feature.

"A clean IDE"

What do you like best?

I like the design of the IDE, it is very clean and i find that having a clean enviroment for programming is something that you need to not have any major confusion. i also like how it can integrates to almost everything without problems, like, Maven works very well and i'm just amazed, with Eclipse i had major issues with it.

What do you dislike?

The price, even if there is a comunity edition, the premium edition has a good price mark, a bit high but it could be all worth in the end, something you can see after hours of usage is that it eats my RAM, which is okay but sometimes it can be too much and risk to be unstable which is really a problem while programming..

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you consider to buy it, first, test the comunity edition, and if you feel good with it you can consider buying it. If you're a student look on the GitHub Student pack as it offers a license to IDEA.

We do not regret any cent spent on this IDE.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are able to program, like, better, it is cleaner, just better, i do not know how to explain but, we feel more comfortable with it and we can do everything better with it.

" Intellij IDEA, One of the best IDE's"

What do you like best?

Intellij is one of the Best IDE's available. There is so many great features it'd be a waste of time talking about them all. The most useful for me is code completion. Often when coding, people make small mistakes without realizing. After spending hours upon hours on your code you'll struggle to look and see what is wrong. Here's where Intellij IDEA Code Completion comes into play, I don't even need to type most of the name, simply by typing first few letters i can chose from the list of possible code/words. A great feature I like is real-time code inspection. It helps me correct a large majority of my code without the need of going to execute and find. It saves my valuable time and effort which enables me to code more.

What do you dislike?

There is one problem with this program and its vast amount of features. Sometimes when working on code I encounter very high RAM usage. The integrated console likes to lag and stop working at times.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Go for it, It is an amazon product and will not fail to help you code better and save valuable time.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It saves time and effort which will enable you to work better and do more.

"IntelliJ IDEA, A simple yet productive IDE"

What do you like best?

Where to start? IntelliJ IDEA is a feature packed suite with many tools essential for programmers. With a clean and sleek design, it is easy on the eyes for those late nights when you're coding and restless. Paired with its Auto Complete feature, you'll barely make errors again. Before you can make an error it'll show you suggestions to choose from so you need not restlessly type with lots of errors.

What do you dislike?

This program is rather resource intensive, I've found. Although this can be easily solved with disabling some features; Some people would rather not go through the hassle.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are an aspiring coder but can't find software to meet your needs, take my word for it and try IntelliJ IDEA.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I've realized that now that we aren't making errors and aren't blinded by the UI; Our productivity is much better and we are pushing out much more code.

"Best warnings and suggestions ever."

What do you like best?

What I love about IntelliJ is the warnings. IntelliJ warns about so many errors, and is able suggest many ways to simplify and speed up your code. Several times now, IntelliJ immediately caught bugs that my colleagues had tried to debug unsuccessfully for days.

I also love the debugger. The software we develop is very resource intensive, and we have to run tests on remote servers. IntelliJ makes it easy to run the tests remotely. I also love the "evaluate" functionality of the debugger: at any breakpoint, you can evaluate a piece of code to see what the result is. It makes debugging an ease. The breakpoints themselves are also wonderful, with complex filtering rules that allow you to say "stop at this breakpoint, but only if this other breakpoint was activated and this variable was set to true".

What do you dislike?

Very resource heavy. As soon as I start to type, my laptop's fans spin up. The startup time is also somewhat annoying. If you develop on an old machine with less than 8GB memory, forget about using IntelliJ.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Try the trial period, and see how many issues it points out to you about your codebase. Also, try out the automatic fixes to see how easy it is to make IntelliJ automatically patch those issues.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The warnings and suggestions improve the code's maintainability, and speed up bug fixes. The automatic refactoring is a breeze to use, and speeds up development significantly.

"Amazing JAVA IDE"

What do you like best?

Code completion, implementation and support for well known frameworks. It's simply amazing and the shortcuts it has really speeds up your workflow! It also has support for more than just JAVA. If you get the ultimate version, you can essentially have a single IDE that can do any language their other IDEs support like : Javascript, python, go, ruby, etc. It has also has database management support built in!

What do you dislike?

Its heavy and uses a lot of resources. Not a problem if you have a decent workstation.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Amazing ide if you're looking for a great experience while coding in java, scala or even any other JVM based languages. It features a ton of tools and support for frameworks used in the java world. It's also cross platform, so someone on linux among your team can run the same IDE as you are on windows or mac!. Their pricing is great too, it's a bit on the expensive side, but you it's absolutely worth it.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Coding faster, enforce good quality coding standards and coding with the best tool available on the market for java and scala developpement

"The best way to implemtens java proyects"

What do you like best?

I like the idea of ​​being able to work on several projects based on what is for me one of the best JAVA programming languages ​​and at the same time be able to handle its different options and tools such as the springboot framework which is able to interpret very well with few necessary configurations, as well as the option to add your git account or repository and keep your repositories or projects stored in the cloud updated

What do you dislike?

One of the things that I do not like is how heavy it can be for our computer if it is not so powerful, but at the same time it is understandable because it is so complete and dedicated to various Java features and other accessories as convention managers. like git, and having so many options to manage versions of JAVA projects can be a bit complicated the configuration of a project for the first time

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Taking into account the variety of versions and options that it has to work with the JAVA language, it seems to me that it is the best option to take into account, if implemented with a sufficiently powerful computer it will be the best experience when working on these projects

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Together with a partner we could complete a project remotely since it is in another country, in a very simple way configuring a repository in which we store our project previously developed in Intellij IDEA in its ultimate version, with which we made changes daily and we could both work in different parts of the project without affecting the partner, the project was developed with JAVAspring which was uploaded to our IDE and easily configured

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I would definitely recommend this IDE for java users it is one of the best java IDE i have ever used.

"Elegant and simple"

What do you like best?

The fact that it is easy to use and the experience is more than satisfactory.

What do you dislike?

The least helpful thing about IDEA is the themes. I would have loved the theme of brackets.io in IDEA because I love that.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If the job is to write codes all day long with hampering your eyes as little as possible, go for it. You will never even be disappointed.

The customization is great, the experience is great, the service is great. Version control system works like charm. You can split several windows for your ease of coding. I can go on all day long and still will have something left to talk about IDEA.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are developing an ERP system for our company using Spring Boot and IDEA is the main IDE we are using for writing back end.

"Very useful for enterprise applications"

What do you like best?

I really like some of the auto complete features when working with Maven and the Spring Framework. It also does some really nice things when working with multiple classes to help you with multiple methods and where those method calls are coming from.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that fact that they have a paid edition on top of the community edition. I am hopeful that they will release soon, like Eclipse, an IDE that is totally free and offers many tools built in to it.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Make sure that you need the advanced features before paying for the paid version.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am making websites for clients with Java and Spring Boot with IntelliJ. I have realized that some of the autocomplete features are nice when building it all up to be ready for production.

"Its is user friendly and good for quick coding."

What do you like best?

The IDE user interface is user friendly.

It's auto code completion type features save lot of time.

Debugging mechanism is basic but good enough to find quick errors.

The suggestions to optimize code are really helpful.

The shortcuts help navigate through functionalities better.

While I code java, inheritance mechanisms are a great hassle, but with IntelliJ, tracking inheritance is easy. Also, it helps a lot identifying casting errors.

I tend to use all possible panes and it comes really handy to have important functionalities on left and right navigation panes easily accessible and easy to use.

The documentation is effective and adding additional plugins is not that of a hassle.

What do you dislike?

JDBC and Sql interfacing is not user friendly.

Its little tedious to remember all the shortcuts.So, a small panel with all functionalities of shortcuts would be better.

UI designing by using libraries like Swing is not that easy to use. Drag and drop can be inculcated and improved. Designing GUI is probably hectic becasue of the large amount of trivial coding. On improving the drag and drop feature, It will cater to main focus of design saving time on writing code.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It is good for hassle free Java coding with good enough debugging and ample support for shortcuts and portability with kotlin too.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use IntelliJ IDEA for Java coding of backend applications that deal wih Sql and running inputs for 1-8 million in number.

It helps a lot organizing and optimizing the code better.

"A sleek IDE with all the necessities for coders"

What do you like best?

As we all know, there is nothing more infuriating then when you've just coded something and then it wont run the test build because of an error in the code (Normally a spelling error). IntelliJ IDEA has an amazing autocomplete feature and because of this, there isn't a problem and I don't need to waste precious time searching through my code for the error. This is a great program, I've used it for years and I can't code without it. It's just so much better then every other program.

What do you dislike?

It is mainly aimed at Java coders and is lacking in its features, etc for other programming languages. The startup time is horrendous and it is resource intensive.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you're thinking about coding in java, don't do it without IntelliJ IDEA!

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The program speeds up bug fixing and helps prevent most errors before they're even made!

Helpful?
