IntelliJ IDEA 6.0: Built-in Struts Support

Starting from release 6.0, IntelliJ IDEA will provide Struts support out-of-the-box. The functionality is added by Struts Assistant plugin that is now bundled to IntelliJ IDEA. So you’ll get it without any additional download and installation. Furthermore, the plugin will be better integrated with IntelliJ IDEA core and will immediately get all J2EE improvements and new features that will be available in the forthcoming IntelliJ IDEA 6.0. The plugin itself will be free and open source, so you can find it in IntelliJ IDEA plugin repository.
The next great news is that Dmitry Avdeev, the Struts Assistant plugin developer, is now hired by JetBrains. He’ll become a member of the J2EE team in IntelliJ IDEA. Welcome aboard, Dmitry!

  1. That is great to hear! Any chance it will support Struts 2.0 when it comes out? I’d be happy to work with Dmitry to help make that happen :)

    Thanks Patrick. Cooperation is welcome. As for Struts 2, I’m still hoping it will appear one day…

    Looks like there is a Struts 2.0 build to play with. This would outrageously cool if we got some IDE support for the webwork-like framework. It would definitely be in the Kool and the Gang category, which says alot.

    It would be nice if you have an example how to really set it up and use it with 6.0

    I don’t like the new version (compared to version for intelliJ 5). It doesn’t seem to allow manual placement of labels in the diagram, and I can no longer select an action by clicking it in the diagram. Even worse: tiles support sees to be broken
