Suggestion: A PlugIn to convert Eclipse's Project-Files to InelliJ's

Hi all,

The reason my team works with Eclipse these days (and not with IntelliJ) is that another group which we are relying on works on Eclipse and we have to Adjust Ourselves to them.

This is the situation - we can't dispute it, only accept it and downgrade ourselves to Eclipse (it is a good IDE, no question - but it is really a couple of levels below IJ, still better than notepad or borland, but lower than IJ)

UNLESS:

Someone would write a plugin which can convert Eclipse projects to IJ (and vice versa)
This way we'll get the complete Eclipse-project-directory from our external team, instruct the IJ-plugin to open the project from the Eclipse project-files (and vice versa when we ship the project to the external team)

Anyone?

This feature is new and available only in IRIDA, NOT in Idea 4.5.x !

I know there isn't a good answer to this question, but:
When does Iridia is due to release?

Actually, my team has time (we start to develop perhaps by next month or even more)
But I do want to give my supervisor as much as detailed answer...

P.S.
This New Feature is as important as the entire Refactoring Feature, i.e. Life Saver :)

This unfortunately only works one way. Therefore any changes (adding dependency on new jar) will cause the Eclipse project to fail when the "other team" tries to reload the project.

I suppose what I am suggesting is a feature like "export module to eclipse project". This, I believe, will help out those teams that would like to cross-develop with eclipse users.

cheers,

j
