Hello Yann,
Those are good. One of my colleague is using this plugin looks so
beautiful.
-RT

some of these features look very nice, although most of them are also
available in IDEA (at least with the help of some plugins)

Ouch... the JavaScript debugger looks extremely useful for the kind of applications I seem to be developing these days. I really hate to say it but I might just have to give Eclipse another look... geez even contemplating it feels like I'm walking on the Dark Side!! :) lol

Interesting and/or missing from IDEA items:
-JavaScript debugging: it seems this integrates with IE using the Script
Debugging interface (windows only)?
-Web i18n support
-Minimal image editor (vs. the viewer that is in IDEA now)
-Spring Framework support (through the SpringIDE eclipse plugin:
Considering how widely used Spring is these days, I think Jetbrains should
try to get a commercial plugin started (using 3rd party)
-Hibernate support (I think through the standard Hibernate Tools/JBoss IDE
plugins:
The Hibernate Tools (eclipse) are starting to get quite nice:
<http://www.hibernate.org/hib_docs/tools/eclipse/newandnoteworthy/hibernate-eclipse-news-3.1.0.beta1.html>
I would certainly welcome decent HQL and modelling support, although I don't
know how this will relate to the new EJB3 tooling.

Our company (Beto Software) has developed a commercial Hibernate plug-in for IntelliJ IDEA called Hibero. For further information please visit http://www.hibero.com/

Trying your plugin has been on my todo-list for some time.
I've just downloaded the 1.1 demo, and now have an eval license in the mailbox.

Questions/What I think I need from a Hibernate plugin (before trying):
-Why is the plugin not available through the plugin manager?
-column name completion from DB metadata
-HQL validation, completion & reference linking:
In the ideal world, this would work for external HQL queries (in XML), and
for HQL embedded in Java (similar to the StringEditor plugin). I believe
Demetra will provide some new OpenAPI extension points related to this.
-See generated SQL for HQL
-A minimal "Entity Model" graph view (similar to the Hibernate Tools).

A quick comment:

The configuration dialog could be easily improved:
-The "Driver Libraries" textfield should be greyed-out when it is disabled
(this is quite confusing)
-The plugin should scan all available classes (either the project or the
external JARs) and provide a selection of all detected drivers.
-For convenience, most popular commercial and open-source database products
should have a preconfigured JDBC URL template
-I'd like to switch between multiple connections (using different database
products and JDBC drivers, but the same hbm config)

What do you mean? it's been available since first day.

-column name completion from DB metadata

It's there, along with table, schema and catalog completion..

-HQL validation, completion & reference linking:
In the ideal world, this would work for external HQL
queries (in XML), and
for HQL embedded in Java (similar to the StringEditor
plugin). I believe
Demetra will provide some new OpenAPI extension
points related to this.

This is certainly something we want to do although it will be limited by the OpenAPI.

-See generated SQL for HQL

Added to feature request list.

-A minimal "Entity Model" graph view (similar to the
Hibernate Tools).

Hmmm, nice to have but not a top priority.

Weird because it's done, a bug? what is your environment? IDEA, JDK, OS.

&gt; -The plugin should scan all available classes (either
&gt; the project or the
&gt; external JARs) and provide a selection of all
&gt; detected drivers.
Nice, added to feature list.

&gt; open-source database products
&gt; should have a preconfigured JDBC URL template
&gt; -I'd like to switch between multiple connections
&gt; (using different database
&gt; products and JDBC drivers, but the same hbm config)
Already in our feature list.

Thanks a lot for your feedback.

Just an FYI:

Everyone on my team but me uses Eclipse. Most also use MyEclipse. They all hate MyEclipse but they use it because it's the only way they know how to get some really basic features for working with XML files and whatnot. Barring that, everyone of them would dump MyEclipse in a heartbeat. The "visual designer" they have is my favorite. The visual representation it shows you of your pages is absolutely nothing like what the page really looks like. When you load any kind of XML (including HTML) it's very slow. There's more, but that's a start.

All I'm saying is that it looks far better than it really is. From what I've seen of it so far, I'm thoroughly unimpressed.

By all means give it a try, but don't get your hopes up.
