Intelligent Java IDE, free Community Edition available.


IntelliJ IDEA lets you code without a hitch. It practices a non-intrusive, intuitive approach to help you write, debug, refactor, test and learn your code. Thanks to its deep understanding of languages and technologies, IntelliJ IDEA provides a second pair of hands for you when you need them. Playing the game by your rules without ever getting in your way - that's what we believe is the key to a productive and pleasant development.

IntelliJ IDEA Ultimate is an annual subscription that starts at $149 per year, paid annually, for individual users. See more details on their pricing page.

Best in town.

Fantastic product for Web programming; I'm using the Javascript, Coffeescript, and Jade support, and it's such a productivity booster, especially with the way the on-the-fly code analysis (i.e., lint) works. Would not be without it.

I had to change the "/Applications/IntelliJ IDEA 13" JVMVersion from 1.6* to 1.7* in order to have the Community Edition running under JDK 1.7 (64bit). See more here:

Version 12.1.6

Just switch from Eclipse to Intellij IDEA. Why? The IDE uses the available space o your screen much better than Eclipse does - try Eclipse on a 13" MacBook .... Fantatistic features, really speedy ... best IDE I know. And, I use the ultimate version. Good invested money.

I don't understand why MacUpdate has this listed as "Demo $199.00". It's free! I use the CE (community edition) professionally, and it's the BEST Java IDE out there. You can pay extra to get additional features, but that's OPTIONAL. The free version is an amazing, fully-featured professional IDE that kicks Netbeans & Eclipse's butts (IMO)!

How come this begin one of the best IDEA and platform-independent IDE's have not been updated on this site for a long time. The current running version is 11.0.2. Hopefully it will get updated and will get some discounts for it.
