Full-Fledged SQL Editor

As you know, IntelliJ IDEA 8.0 has brought you a full-fledged SQL editor to make the database development a real pleasure.

If you’ve been too busy to read about all the countless new release features, visit the SQL editor page, or even the complete new features list to fill up the gaps.

Today’s news is that we’ve created a live demo that gives an overview of the core SQL editor features:

  • Coding assistance, with code completion,
  • Multiple SQL dialect support with syntax highlighting,
  • Built-in instant query runner,
  • and some more.

This demo (also available in zip format for offline viewing) gives you directions to begin exploring IntelliJ IDEA SQL support and is no doubt a good starter for anyone who plans to use this Java IDE for database applications development.

And the last, but not least — the upcoming version 8.1 (due for release in February) will bring you more SQL dialects, along with further extended coding assistance and some other new and improved features, so stay in tune with release news.

    Will 8.1 be a free upgrade for Intellij Idea 8.0 license owners?

    Well, for me it’s far from “a real pleasure”. Whenever I open an sql file with long lines (which open in normal text editors without any delay), Idea gets stuck almost completely, with CPU running full power. What is worse, it manages to remember the last file opened, so if I just kill it and run again, it starts in the same stuck mode again!
