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

Providing secure, mobile access to sensitive data sets is a critical element in realizing the full potential of cloud computing. However, large data caches remain inaccessible to edge devices for reasons of security, size, format or limited viewing capabilities. Medical imaging, computer aided design and seismic interpretation are just a few examples of industries facing this challenge. Rather than fighting for incremental gains by pulling these datasets to edge devices, we need to embrace the i...
In 2014, Amazon announced a new form of compute called Lambda. We didn't know it at the time, but this represented a fundamental shift in what we expect from cloud computing. Now, all of the major cloud computing vendors want to take part in this disruptive technology. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, John Jelinek IV, a web developer at Linux Academy, will discuss why major players like AWS, Microsoft Azure, IBM Bluemix, and Google Cloud Platform are all trying to sidestep VMs and containers...
Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.
IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards.

Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walked through how Octob...
