The recording of our December 9th webinar, Spring 4.0 and IntelliJ IDEA 13, is now available on our JetBrains YouTube Channel.
In this session, Yann Cébron (JetBrains) and Josh Long (Pivotal), highlight the new features for Spring support included in both of these major releases. They provide hands-on demonstrations so you’ll be able to pick up useful productivity tips & tricks for your daily work.
Lastly, we announced our plans to release Spring Open API to the public with the IntelliJ IDEA 13.1 release (as a part of IntelliJ Platform SDK). This will enable third-party plugin developers to reuse existing Spring support in their own IntelliJ IDEA plugins (e.g. providing tight integration for frameworks) as well as extending it (e.g. fully support custom namespaces).
If you haven’t tried IntelliJ IDEA 13 yet, we would like to remind you that the new release brings many improvements for Spring support:
- The IDE now automatically detects unmapped contexts defined with @Configuration or XML files and suggests adding them to the project settings;
- The new dedicated tool window helps navigate through the beans, showing additional information such as dependencies, quick documentation, diagram as well as the corresponding HTTP information for the controller methods, defined in the project (including mapped URL, method and path variables);
- Performance improvement for large projects;
- And many other minor enhancements.
We encourage you to share your feedback on our discussion forum and we ask that you report any bugs in our issue tracker.
