Change in VF - now going to be included in IJ

Who thinks that this needs to support JSF instead of their custom library?

One thing I can tell you right away is that we have changed the strategy a
bit, so we are making the Fabrique IDE now as an extension to IntelliJ IDEA
rather than a separate tool. So basically you will be able to enable
Fabrique support in IDEA, create a Fabrique module, define all the pages and
business model, use your existing classes from other modules to create a
working web application, plus get all the features of IDEA for working with
regular Java code you can be using in Fabrique apps. We are planning to
continue the EAP of Fabrique right when the EAP for IDEA 5.0 starts. And
this time we want to make it immediately available for every IDEA user. We
hope this will simplify the adoption and speed up the development.

That's awesome news. IDEA + Fabrique has the potential to be the web application development tool, if done right. I've tried the Fabrique EAP a while ago, and loved it. Pairing that with IDEA's code editing, there's no other tool that could get close to it.

About JSF support... I'm still very sceptic about it, but that's just me: the big mass evil developers[/url] out there might be crying out loud for it.

Just wanted to throw in my support for this plan. I believe this is the strategy that will make Fabrique relevent to everyone. Thanks JetBrains!!!

This will be nice - as long as the feature is useable and the focus doesn't get lost or stolen....

EXCELLENT IDEA!

Should make IDEA 5.0 pretty much untouchable .... :-D

Can't WAIT to see it!

You can count on the "stolen" part. Take a look at eclipse. Lots of
thievery going on there.

It must be JSF, I doubt that many developers are buying into fabrique.
Almost all the other IDEs support JSF now. IMO this is an extremely bad
move on Intellij's part.

I was referring to IDEAs lovely habit of losing and stealing the input focus. {:-)

No point having all these new bells and whistles when you cant use the damned thing productively

It woold be nice to make both VF and IJ JSF Friendly. As far as IJ I would
like to see direct JSF support vithout VF if possible
