There's a weird behavior in Idea 14 (I had it with 14.0.3 and not with 14.1.1 as well).
Sometimes, and I can't tell exactly when, the little green bean icon that indicates a class is defined as a spring bean disappears.
I don't it being related to maven re-imports, to svn updates or to anything else.
I also don't exactly know how to reproduce it. To fix it I try the following:
- Go to the XML context where the bean is defined, and then CTRL+CLICK on the class where the bean is defined to go to that class.
- Highlight some code on the file
- Open-close it
Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.
In short, this is very annoying and I would love for this great feature to be more dependent.
