IntelliJ IDEA is a commercial Java development tool which competes with the free Eclipse and NetBeans projects. It is an integrated development environment (IDE) designed to automate parts of the coding process; to support a large number of different frameworks, tools, and targets; to work with multiple languages; and not to get in the way of the developer’s work. IntelliJ IDEA also does a good job of keeping up-to-date with the Java platform, subject to the expense of keeping current with the latest product version.
