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

Enterprises are moving to the cloud faster than most of us in security expected. CIOs are going from 0 to 100 in cloud adoption and leaving security teams in the dust. Once cloud is part of an enterprise stack, it’s unclear who has responsibility for the protection of applications, services, and data. When cloud breaches occur, whether active compromise or a publicly accessible database, the blame must fall on both service providers and users. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben Johnson, C...

Data scientists must access high-performance computing resources across a wide-area network. To achieve cloud-based HPC visualization, researchers must transfer datasets and visualization results efficiently. HPC clusters now compute GPU-accelerated visualization in the cloud cluster. To efficiently display results remotely, a high-performance, low-latency protocol transfers the display from the cluster to a remote desktop. Further, tools to easily mount remote datasets and efficiently transfer...
