I'm looking to up my game in the near future, and considering purchasing a personal lisence for IntelliJ. I've found that there are a few things I cant do, or cant figure out how to do, with the community eddition.
I'm looking to develop a web application managing a database of information. The database is relatively straight forward, and I was considering using MySQL or another relational database (though I need to research a few other database options). I'm loooking for a basic web front-end that will interact with the server to modify/view the database contents in various forms.
From what I have found so far it's not possible to integrate a server into the IntelliJ community edition. This is a major hang up, as it's a pain to deploy your appliation every time you want to test a change. Having it integrated makes testing and development much more streamlined. I'm also having dificulty integrating version tracking such as Git. There's some walkthroughs online, but I've yet to manage to get it working with the community edition.
I really love IntelliJ, and I'm hoping that these functions are more fleshed out in the lisenced version. Otherwsie I'll have to consider using a differnt IDE which would make me really sad as IntelliJ is really the best thing I've found so far.
If anyone can offer some advice on how worthwhile it is to upgrade to a lisenced version, or if the functions I'm looking for are avaiable in the community eddition. I'm really just looking to make sure I'm not wasting my money if I do buy a lisence.
Thanks in Advance!
