Overview

IntellJ IDEA in Action will help developers dig a little deeper into IDEA and embrace its streamlining features which allow for more time to be spent on project design rather than code management. Without some educational investment, however, IDEA can be just another editor. That then, is the purpose of this book. To not only get you up and running quickly, but to teach you how to use IDEA's powerful software development tools to their fullest advantage. Important product features, including the debugger, source code control, and the many code generation tools, are carefully explained and accompanied by tips and tricks that will leave even experienced IDEA users with "Eureka!" moments of informed programming. Coders just graduating from NOTEPAD and Java IDE veterans alike will profit from the powerful and timesaving expertise provided in this essential programmer's resource.

IDEA is a next-generation IDE for Java, an Integrated Development Environment. As the term IDE implies, IDEA integrates or combines all of the tools needed to develop Java software into a single application and interface. In other words, IDEA is a tool that helps develop Java applications more quickly, easily, and intelligently. IDEA can help with every phase of a project, from design and development to testing and deployment. This book is based on the IntelliJ IDEA Java development environment software from JetBrains, version 5.0.

Purchase of the print book comes with an offer of a free PDF eBook from Manning. Also available is all code from the book.

This book will help developers dig a little deeper into IDEA and embrace its streamlining features which allow for more time to be spent on project design rather than code management.
