Subject RE: Committers: IntelliJ IDEA for open source developers

Some would argue that conventions like yours should NOT be allowed
(supported), since it makes maintenance a nightmare. Much better to just
hover of the import statement and let the IDE tell you where it was found
(makes finding/using different implementation jars much easier).

Subject: Re: Committers: IntelliJ IDEA for open source developers


My addition to Eclipse lies in all the free plugins I can
get just by using a menu item from the Help menu. Actually,
I've never touched IntelliJ, though the freebee aspect
makes me tempted. One thing I *don't* like about IntelliJ
is the fact that, in Eclipse, I put comments in the import
statments telling which jar file to look in, and IntelliJ
*loves* to reformat files in its own image, tossing out my
comments. Collab development using cvs or other version
control system can be hazzardous to your mental health.
