IntelliJ IDEA Community Edition
What is IntelliJ IDEA Community Edition?
IntelliJ IDEA is a Java IDE, or Integrated Development Environment, a program that essentially allows developers to build software and provide them the tools necessary to complete such a task. Developed by Jetbrains, IntelliJ IDEA is available in two licenses, a full commercial edition (the so-called Ultimate Edition) and an Apache 2 licensed community version, and ranks as a top-tier Java programming utility, alongside Eclipse, NetBeans, and Oracle’s JDeveloper. IntelliJ IDEA was first released in 2001 and has made a name for itself with advanced tools not present in IDEs at that time; Google’s Android Studio, an Android development IDE, is partly based from IntelliJ IDEA.
One of the main features that IntelliJ IDEA boasts is its code refactoring capabilities, the first of its kind in an IDE, but more recent versions further scooped-up its capabilities. It has on-the-fly code analysis and code navigation tools, making it easy for the programmer to find flaws in the code and fix or modify them as necessary, similar to a word processor’s spellcheck feature. IntelliJ IDEA also automates repetitive tasks or codes and features support for a wide variety of programming languages with no additional plug-in installations.
