IntelliJ IDEA 2019.3 EAP5: MongoDB Support, and More

A new IntelliJ IDEA 2019.3 EAP build is here and it comes with highly anticipated improvements. Continuing the trend of eliminating pain-points and resolving issues that affected lots of users, this new EAP build addresses the issues that have received more than 400 votes in total.

Download and try the freshly released new EAP build from our website, or update to it via the Toolbox App.

As usual, the EAP builds for IntelliJ IDEA Ultimate are free to use but expire within 30 days of the build date.

MongoDB support

At last, it’s here! The upcoming IntelliJ IDEA 2019.3 will provide initial support for MongoDB.

Already in this EAP build, you can view collections and fields in the database explorer.


You can also open any collection or observe the query result. It’s also possible to sort by columns or filter the values.


What’s more, you can now run queries. Select one and run it by pressing Ctrl/Cmd+Enter or by clicking the Play button on the toolbar.


Please keep in mind that this is still a work in progress. There are some known limitations: no coding assistance for now, and no integration with MongoDB shell so only a limited number of MongoDB functions that can be executed. Rest assured though that we will extend this functionality in our future releases.

Improved Command Line Inspector

With IntelliJ IDEA you can launch code inspections from the command line. V2019.3 will enhance this feature so that the IDE can detect the JDK automatically. You will be able to run it on a CI server with no system-wide IntelliJ IDEA configuration.

We’ve also added a new option, “-changes”, to inspect only uncommitted changes and to report only newly introduced problems.

Another recent addition is support for reporting the inspection results as JSON, in addition to the previously available plain text and XML formats.

Other improvements

We have also updated JBR 11 (default) to v11.0.4+10-b517.1, to integrate the following changes:

  • Fixed the issue with project opening on macOS 10.15 Catalina: JBR-1721.
  • Repaired the symbols in the Evaluate Expression dialog: JBR-1879.

For the full list of changes, please refer to the IDE release notes and the JBR11 release notes.
