Spring Boot Intellij Community


I am aware that it is possible to develop an Spring Boot application in Intellij Community, however, since it isn't listed under the Community supported frameworks, I was wondering:

1) Why isn't it listed?

2) Are there any disadvantages while working with Spring Boot in Community?

3) Can we develop for-profit applications using Community and Spring Boot?

Thank you

IntelliJ IDEA Community doesn't provide Spring Boot support or application servers support.

You can still use it for Spring Boot applications, but many features will not work and you will have to deploy/run your code using Maven or Gradle.

You can run them using the Application run/debug configuration or via Maven/Gradle (like you would do in the command line, outside of any IDE)
