Hello, everyone! I'm new to these forums, but it seems to be the place to keep informed on my favorite IDE. I've tried other open-source alternatives like Eclipse and NetBeans, but I inevitably come back to IDEA because of the little day-to-day features it has that the others lack. I've been using IDEA 3.0 for years, but recently discovered a need to upgrade my JDK to 1.5.0_01.
In doing so, I evaluated NetBeans as a possible alternative to upgrading my IntelliJ. After an afternoon of feature-poor frustration, I decided a look at Irida may be in order. I like what I see.
However, one thing that was apparent in NetBeans that seems to be missing in IDEA is compiling a jar for your project. Is there a way to do this in IDEA that's eluding me?
