So how does it compare with IntelliJ built-in code formatting?

Currently - ANYTHING would be better than the built-in formatting ;p
Unless this latest EAP fixes it...

OK, I think you realize this is not what I meant...

How does it compare to IntelliJ in general in that regard (features,
shortcomings) provided that IntelliJ works fine (which it will when it
is released)?

Hello,

generally I would name the following points as Jindent benefits compared to the IntelliJ IDEA 4.5 code styler.

Benefits of Jindent:

  • Formatting output is pretty stable since more than 6 years of work now

  • Sorting of all kind of source code elements (method declarations, fields, imports, ...)

  • Insertion of "separator comments" between sorted sections

  • Java 5.0 support

  • Different brace styles are possible for different kind of declarations and statements

  • Different line wrapping strategies and settings to achieve better output

  • More different blank line settings

  • Even more white space settings

  • Header/footer recognition and insertion

  • Formatter provides messages to report several events

  • Usage of environment variables in all JavaDoc/header/footer and comments templates

  • Preview and Help-On-Click support for all formatter settings (preview with user defined Java files possible)


But generally I would suggest to convince yourself and download our trial version for evaluation.

Best regards
Tobias
