IntelliJ IDEA 5.0 with JSP2 and J2ME features

JetBrains has announced the release of IntelliJ IDEA 5.0, the newest version of the company’s Java IDE.

IntelliJ IDEA 5.0 is a professional-grade tool for developers working
in situations where time is money and sustained productivity is a
measure of success. Staying always in close touch with those who use
the IDE daily, JetBrains carefully designed IntelliJ IDEA 5.0 to bring
out the very best in Java development amplifying and validating their
community-oriented approach with dedicated customer support for which
the company is noted.

“Version 5.0 continues the JetBrains history of changing how developers
think about programming,” said Eugene Belyaev, JetBrains president and
CTO. “Developers, like athletes, sometimes refer to being ‘in the flow’
or ‘in the zone,’ where time recedes into the background and a person’s
abilities open to their fullest. Tools that help developers reach this
superstate are invaluable because developer productivity skyrockets, as
those who use IntelliJ IDEA often attest.”

New powerpacked and enhanced productivity-boosting features include but are not limited to:

* Web and Enterprise development
— Enhanced JSP support (covering JSP 2.0) with unparalleled level of
code understanding that IDEA users originally had for Java, including
refactorings and code inspections, import optimization, code
completion, validation, formatting, navigation, finding usages, etc.
— HTML, CSS, JavaScript and property files support, with all smart
editing and error highlighting features, including code completion,
refactorings, navigation, inspections, finding usages and more
* More than 200 new code inspections including:
* Revolutionary detection of possible NullPointerExceptions and API
contract compliance verification based on Java 5.0 annotations that lets
validate the code right in the editor as one is coding
— Internationalization tool with dedicated inspection
* Subversion and Perforce VCS integrations
— Enhanced Codebase navigation and presentation including:
— Favorites views
— External stacktrace navigation with unscrambling support
— Quick content lookup
— Image files browser and thumbnails view
— Backward and cyclic dependencies analysis for
— New refactorings and important improvements to the existing ones
— More flexible debugger, with dependent breakpoints and custom object
— J2ME support
— Import of JBuilder and Eclipse projects
— Enhanced Open API for more flexible and complex extensions (with the
new Plugin module type, for easier running/debugging/deploying); it
is now possible to create language plugins, with the same level of
editor smartness that IDEA provides for Java
