IntelliJ IDEA Inspection Settings for Refactoring to Java 8
I've been giving a talk this year showcasing how to use IntelliJ IDEA inspections to help you refactor existing code to Java 8. The initial version of this, the one I gave at DevoxxUK (video), is based on my Migrating to Java 8 Tutorial. I've also written before about how IntelliJ IDEA can help you write more idiomatic Java 8 code. I'm revisiting the topic now that IntelliJ IDEA 2016.3 has added even more support for identifying areas of code that can utilise Java 8 idioms and APIs, and making better use of those areas that already use Java 8. I've updated the presentation to use these new

Fresh IntelliJ IDEA 2016.3 EAP build, packed with various improvements is here. This and all future builds will have the Gradle composite builds support, so you can substitute any of your project dependencies with another project. Imagine your project has compilation time dependencies to org.sample:number-utils and org.sample:string-utils: Now, you'd like to change something in these libraries (a very common case). Normally you'd need to open the sources of these libraries as separate projects, make the changes, build, upload new artifacts to the repository, then update the depend
