Looking at the new MyEclipse for Spring IDE, I'm wondering how close IDEA 10 comes to it.
For example, with MyEclipse for Spring you can reverse engineer from the database all the mappings, forms, controllers, etc., in a few minutes. It will also create front ends for Java/Web, Flex, and others by just clicking one or more check boxes for each front end you want.
And, to add new forms that are backed by Java objects that did not originate from the Database, you:
1. Write your Java backing bean (POJO) the way you normally would
2. Run (MyEclipse for Spring) scaffolding against those POJOs
3. Choose some combination of Web Layer, Service Layer, DAO Layer depending on your needs
ME4S will generate the UI's (Forms) for your beans, the MVC controllers, Webflow, Flex, and/or GWT UI's depending on what you select.
We will also update the web.xml and all of the spring context files for you.
Looking at IDEA by comparison, it looks like you're pretty much on your own.
Does IDEA have productivity tools like this to speed Spring-MVC development?
With much in IDEA it "may" be in there, but, for me at least, it's usually hard to find. Also, the IDEA spring video I could find was for version 8.
Thanks in advance for any replies.
