I'm trying to switch from Netbeans 7 to IntelliJ. I'm a big fan of IntelliJ - it's professional, fast and stable. But whatever the limitations of Netbeans are, I have to admit there are features I can't seem to find in IntelliJ. Maybe somebody can help me to point certain out ?
- Search for dependencies not yet present in the local repository. Netbeans downloads regularly the indices of the various repositories. Allowing a quick search for something new.
- GUI for the pom.xml file.
- Case in-sensitive code completion.
- Method argument auto-completion. When selecting a method the arguments are automatically filled-in with the most probable candidates.
- Generate boolean getters as isXXXXX() methods instead of getXXXXX().
- Select the method to step into when there's more than one method call on the current line.
- Actions like adding annotations for uni/bidrectional relationships, etc...
- GUI for persistence.xml + changing the configuration according to the choices.
