How responsive is IntelliJ to changes in the Java landscape? Should developers purchase your product?

Hi,

If you read this article http://www.infoq.com/news/2011/02/muir_seam3 you will see SEAM has a problem working with JSF 2.0.
In March 2011 SEAM 3 should be released (see https://issues.jboss.org/browse/SEAM?selectedTab=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.project%3Aroadmap-panel) that works with JSF 2.0, so too Richfaces 4.0 should be released in March 2011 see http://in.relation.to/Bloggers/Jay

Will Intellij be ready to offer these technologies to its community by the end of March 2011?
A lot of developer teams are waiting for Seam 3 and Richfaces 4 to move to JSF 2.0.

Please respond as we are currently in the month trial of using IntelliJ. SEAM 3, Richfaces 4 and JSF 2.x are our technology path.
Before we purchase IntelliJ, we need to know how responsive IntelliJ will be to changes in the Java landscape? And are you releasing a version that does support SEAM 3, Richfaces 4 and JSF 2?

Thanks

HI Serge,

Any idea when IDEA 11 is expected to be released? We thought it would be released 4th Quarter 2011?

We are hoping IDEA 11 will include support for JSF 2, SEAM, Richfaces 4 and Primefaces with connections to Latest Jboss 7.0.2.Final and JBoss 6.1.0.Final
This is our development environment and we would like to purchase IntelliJ when it will be useful for our development environment.
We are currenly using Eclipse with JBoss developer studio and would rather move to IDEA as we heared it speeds up development.

Check the EAP version: http://confluence.jetbrains.net/display/IDEADEV/IDEA+11+EAP .
See http://youtrack.jetbrains.net/issues/IDEA for the list of open issues related to the technologies you need.

IDEA 11 will be released in Q4 2011.

JSF2/Richfaces should be supported with some limitations, check http://youtrack.jetbrains.net/issues/IDEA for the open issues.

Hi Serge,

Our license for Jboss Developer Studio expires in about a month and so we would like to try Intellij 11.
However we are concerned when will full support be included for Richfaces 4.x and Primefaces?

Please ask the people who make the decisions at Intellij if they would consider including full support for Richfaces 4.x and Primefaces with JSF2 for Intellij 11.
If the answer is yes, then they will have a new customer for Intellij 11.  Maybe lots of other Jboss Developer Studio users will move over as well.

Thanks

I'd recommend trying the EAP version and filing requests for the missing features.
