In the current IJ 7.0x releases and EAP build, it seems that the Spring Live Templates are not properly configured. At first glance it seems they are not available from within a Spring configuration file. Checking the Live Templates, it occures that for none of them the XML-context is configured, which causes the problem. Please fix this for the next minor release. And, please, also add at least a small description to them, up to now there is nothing except the partly cryptic abbreviations. It seems that release quality control failed here completely.
As a side note, due to some internal restructuring, it might happen that we are forced to switch to a Eclipse distribution, because that's what an external consultant partner recommends. My favorite would be MyEclipse.
However, I think that IntelliJ is still much more usable and comfortable than all this Eclipse stuff, however, if I compare MyEclipse's documentation and help system, the ones of IntelliJ seem really poor. MyEclipse contains a tremendous amount of resources and the help browser itself seems to be far more usable.
I hope that JetBrains can work on the documentation issue. There are not enough tutorials. This stuff is very important for newbies. (The new group of developers we have to incorporate do not have much Java experience.) If they are presented both IntelliJ and MyEclipse I am afraid that they would opt for the latter, because they have more resources to start and learn with.
The documentation issue is not directly related to the topic, however, the fact that an important assistance feature, such as Live Templates, is not properly configured, could add to the unfavorable impression our newbies might get from IntelliJ.
