IntelliJ IDEA 12 Reveals the Darker Side of Productive Coding

PRAGUE, December 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

JetBrains rolls out its annual IntelliJ IDEA update with a significantly faster compiler, support for Java 8, UI designer for Android development and a new stylish dark look-and-feel

JetBrains, the creators of intelligent, productivity-enhancing tools for software developers, have announced the public availability of IntelliJ IDEA 12, a regular yearly update of their award-winning Java IDE for web, enterprise and mobile development.

The latest release features a brand new, much faster compiler for enhanced user experience. "We have rebuilt the compiler from the ground up and moved it to a separate process," said Maxim Mossienko, IntelliJ IDEA project lead. "Now your project can be compiled automatically in the background on every change you make, so you can run it almost instantly any time."

As usual, IntelliJ IDEA stays on top of cutting-edge technologies to provide developers with timely support. It embraces the latest versions of Java, including its previews and new features that every developer is eager to try. With IntelliJ IDEA 12, JDK 8 can already be enjoyed with code assistance for new syntax such as lambda expressions, method references, and default methods.

Among other technologies, IntelliJ IDEA expands its support for Android-the fastest growing mobile platform today-with a well-crafted, smart Android UI designer implemented in the best traditions of JetBrains. Its wide range of unique, dedicated refactorings, code assistance and analysis features make IntelliJ IDEA a top-choice IDE for mobile development, also available for free through the Community Edition.

And now to the 'darker side': IntelliJ IDEA 12 comes with a redesigned user interface, along with the new stylish dark look and feel Darcula. "Our goal was to make the interface clearer and more functional. This dark theme minimizes distraction so you can focus more on the code and less on the IDE," explained Konstantin Bulenkov, senior IntelliJ IDEA developer and author of Darcula.

Other major features introduced in IntelliJ IDEA 12 include:

  • Significantly improved support for Spring frameworks, including Integration, Web Flow, MVC, Security, Batch, and more
  • Support for Play 2.0 for Scala and Java
  • Enhanced management tools for J2EE application servers, with support for Cloud Foundry and CloudBees platforms
  • Powerful tools for database management
  • Support for Drools Expert with advanced code assistance
  • Live edit mode for HTML, CSS and JavaScript

T-Mobile has been transforming the wireless industry with its “Uncarrier” initiatives. Today as T-Mobile’s IT organization works to transform itself in a like manner, technical foundations built over the last couple of years are now key to their drive for more Agile delivery practices. In his session at DevOps Summit, Martin Krienke, Sr Development Manager at T-Mobile, will discuss where they started their Continuous Delivery journey, where they are today, and where they are going in an effort ...
Even though it’s now Microservices Journal, long-time fans of SOA World Magazine can take comfort in the fact that the URL – soa.sys-con.com – remains unchanged. And that’s no mistake, as microservices are really nothing more than a new and improved take on the Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) best practices we struggled to hammer out over the last decade. Skeptics, however, might say that this change is nothing more than an exercise in buzzword-hopping. SOA is passé, and now that people are ...
Enterprises are fast realizing the importance of integrating SaaS/Cloud applications, API and on-premises data and processes, to unleash hidden value. This webinar explores how managers can use a Microservice-centric approach to aggressively tackle the unexpected new integration challenges posed by proliferation of cloud, mobile, social and big data projects. Industry analyst and SOA expert Jason Bloomberg will strip away the hype from microservices, and clearly identify their advantages and d...
The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. Acco...
You often hear the two titles of "DevOps" and "Immutable Infrastructure" used independently. In his session at DevOps Summit, John Willis, Technical Evangelist for Docker, will cover the union between the two topics and why this is important. He will cover an overview of Immutable Infrastructure then show how an Immutable Continuous Delivery pipeline can be applied as a best practice for "DevOps." He will end the session with some interesting case study examples.

Today’s enterprise is being driven by disruptive competitive and human capital requirements to provide enterprise application access through not only desktops, but also mobile devices. To retrofit existing programs across all these devices using traditional programming methods is very costly and time consuming – often prohibitively so. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jesse Shiah, CEO, President, and Co-Founder of AgilePoint Inc., discussed how you can create applications that run on all mobile ...
The OpenStack cloud operating system includes Trove, a database abstraction layer. Rather than applications connecting directly to a specific type of database, they connect to Trove, which in turn connects to one or more specific databases. One target database is Postgres Plus Cloud Database, which includes its own RESTful API. Trove was originally developed around MySQL, whose interfaces are significantly less complicated than those of the Postgres cloud database. In his session at 16th Cloud...
There are 182 billion emails sent every day, generating a lot of data about how recipients and ISPs respond. Many marketers take a more-is-better approach to stats, preferring to have the ability to slice and dice their email lists based numerous arbitrary stats. However, fundamentally what really matters is whether or not sending an email to a particular recipient will generate value. Data Scientists can design high-level insights such as engagement prediction models and content clusters that a...

The consumption economy is here and so are cloud applications and solutions that offer more than subscription and flat fee models and at the same time are available on a pure consumption model, which not only reduces IT spend but also lowers infrastructure costs, and offers ease of use and availability.

Due of the rise of Hadoop, many enterprises are now deploying their first small clusters of 10 to 20 servers. At this small scale, the complexity of operating the cluster looks and feels like general data center servers. It is not until the clusters scale, as they inevitably do, when the pain caused by the exponential complexity becomes apparent. We've seen this problem occur time and time again. In his session at Big Data Expo, Greg Bruno, Vice President of Engineering and co-founder of StackI...
Once the decision has been made to move part or all of a workload to the cloud, a methodology for selecting that workload needs to be established. How do you move to the cloud? What does the discovery, assessment and planning look like? What workloads make sense? Which cloud model makes sense for each workload? What are the considerations for how to select the right cloud model? And how does that fit in with the overall IT transformation?
The recent trends like cloud computing, social, mobile and Internet of Things are forcing enterprises to modernize in order to compete in the competitive globalized markets. However, enterprises are approaching newer technologies with a more silo-ed way, gaining only sub optimal benefits. The Modern Enterprise model is presented as a newer way to think of enterprise IT, which takes a more holistic approach to embracing modern technologies.
Every day we read jaw-dropping stats on the explosion of data. We allocate significant resources to harness and better understand it. We build businesses around it. But we’ve only just begun. For big payoffs in Big Data, CIOs are turning to cognitive computing. Cognitive computing’s ability to securely extract insights, understand natural language, and get smarter each time it’s used is the next, logical step for Big Data.
