New in 10.5: Spring Roo console

Latest IntelliJ IDEA 10.5 EAPs introduce a dedicated console view for a popular Spring Roo tool. It allows you to run Roo commands using the standard IntelliJ IDEA code completion and documentation features. You can see any modifications made by Roo directly in your text editor.

The launching action for the console is located under Tools in the main menu.

    Wow! Looks really awesome! I had made an initial attempt to write one based on the ScriptMonkey plugin, but didn’t get too far. Glad you’ve written one! Can’t wait to try it!

    I might suggest that the CTRL+Shift+R keyboard shortcut be assigned to allow for the Roo Console to be quickly and easily launched / brought to the foreground for a module when a user has a file highlighted/open/in focus that’s in the containing module. This shortcut isn’t assigned yet as far as I can tell and is easy on the fingers as well.

    Unfortunately Ctrl-Schift-R is reserved for Replace in Path. We are short of shortcuts, you know 🙂

    Great addition to the best IDE already out there. However one small remark: could you guys automatically activate file synchronization when the Roo console is active. If one of the ITD aspects is open and you change for example a field in the entity, the ITD aspect isn’t automatically refreshed. You need to hit Ctrl+Alt+Y. Roo constantly changes your files when active and it would be nice if IntelliJ would immediately reflect those changes.

    I second Lieven’s comment. It would be great if Roo managed aspects and project source code stay synchronized through the console transparently in the background.
