Quite good.

IMHO, the organization should be a little changed:

1.
Why are the Docs the first chapter? Don't you know that no one reads the
docs ;)

Move chapter 1 to the last chapter or to an appendix and name it "More/other
Documentation".

2.
I don't think there will be that many developers giving $600 for an ide and
not knowing how to install a jdk.
Installing Idea should be 2.1, and install jdk 2.2.

Better yet, move the install jdk to an appendix and put a link at the start
of "3.1 Create a project" to this appendix:
"If you haven't yet installed a Java Software Development Kit, install one
now. Instructions are on appendix..."

3.
The "Basics" chapter should only contain:
3.1 Create a project
3.2 Create a package
3.3 Create a class (with an example only of writing the main method)
3.4 Compile
3.5 Run

4.
All the other topics now on the Basics chapter should go to an "Advanced"
chapter.

Hi Carlos:

Believe it or not, but this is the BEST way to avoid ANY problems... even if
IDEA is really easy to use and straight forward, such things as "installing
and downloading" JDK are called for, because the few people who might be
starting for the first time will not miss anything. This is why it's called
"Quick Start." ;)

Those like you who know more, can simpy jump around and read the things
you're specifically interested in! ;)

We'll get some more advanced docs up in the near future, and they'll slow
you down a bit. :P

best,

David

I would bet that most of their customers are companies buying IDEs for their
developers, not individuals. (And many companies have Jr developers)
