JavaEE custom plugins

Is there any way of being able to develop app server integration plugins for the community edition?

Also, previously it was possible to see the tomcat sources to see how to write a custom plugin for an appserver, but this is no longer an option. Will the EE API be documented at some point, or is it going to become completely closed source so only 'supported' appservers can be used?

It's somewhat annoying as the latest versions of EAP completely broke backward compatibility, and I have no idea how to fix it.

Hello Hani,

Is there any way of being able to develop app server integration
plugins for the community edition?


Yes, but you'd have to re-write from scratch quite a lot of stuff which is
part of the Java EE plugin in IntelliJ IDEA Ultimate.

Also, previously it was possible to see the tomcat sources to see how
to write a custom plugin for an appserver, but this is no longer an
option. Will the EE API be documented at some point, or is it going to
become completely closed source so only 'supported' appservers can be
used?


The source for the OpenAPI part of the Java EE plugin will be available as
part of the Ultimate distribution. You can watch http://youtrack.jetbrains.net/issue/IDEADEV-41361
to get notified when we provide this.

It's also possible that we'll release the source code of one of the app server
plugins as an example.
