Feel free to keep this blog post bookmarked and use it as a cheat sheet when working. I consider myself being a big IntelliJ fan, but I do realize that there are a lot of things that IntelliJ could do better and that NetBeans and Eclipse are better in some ways. I came across this article and it really saved me. If Grgur's posts were helpful, maybe his 16 years of experience could help your project too. Here's what you have in IntelliJ. If you want to restore the deleted file only, regardless of the other changes that have been done since then, you can select the file Lost. However, you can create a patch file with changes relative to a specific revision, which you can share with others.

Guess what — it even works after you restart the editor! In IntelliJ's view you can create a patch or revert to a desired version. Community Edition or Ultimate Edition? Often when you navigate the source code you jump over class hierarchies, browse different methods, open type declarations, etc. When we need to get productive, we often invest money in new gadgets, software, or even a new computer. Is there any way I can access this cache? It is totally worth the price. Basically, it is not hard to navigate the code with Emacs or Vim, but it would limit you only to a basic navigation options. As of July, 2008, FindBugs has been downloaded more than 700,000 times. Common options to git log Option Description -p Show the patch introduced with each commit.
Navigating back in forward is the same in Eclipse with Alt+ left right arrow shortcuts. Ctrl+J will popup a list of all the templates available and can be filtered by the template name. Similar to ReSharper Unit Test Runner, you can also create test sessions, run the current tests, run a scope of tests, etc. Bleary eyed and tired I accidentally wiped out a directory of important files, and then synched with my production server, which of course wiped the files out on the server. I just made changes in my dispacther-servlet. You can access them via Preferences Live Templates Navigation Very rich navigation and pretty much aligned feature-wise with ReSharper.
The difference is that in Eclipse it works only if a Java type is opened and it acts only as a navigation bar - no quick preview available.

I typically check in to version control more often than that, so I trimmed it up to 1 day of history. So for instance, Android will create an Android application, Spring will create a Spring application, et al. When viewing Local History for a directory, revisions show only names of files that changed in the directory. A little time creating new scopes will save you a lot of time in waiting for searches to complete.
This means ultimately adding library references or support for specific languages. You can add Facets here. Think of them as Projects in Visual Studio. Does anyone know where I might find it? Options include oneline, short, full, fuller, and format where you specify your own format. To avoid losing data, check in the changes to your version control system before invalidating caches. You can also add custom labels to mark specific milestones in Local History. A good thing to know is that caret will move to the next line automatically, allowing multiple lines to be commented out at once.
