The first intelligent Java IDE that since the year 2000 has brought clever code assistance, refactorings or code analysis to the Java masses
has been open-sourced. Starting with the upcoming version 9.0, IntelliJ IDEA
will be offered in two editions: Community Edition
and Ultimate Edition
. The Community Edition focuses on Java SE technologies, Groovy and Scala development. It's
free of charge and open-sourced under Apache 2.0 license. The Ultimate edition with full Java EE technology stack remains our standard commercial offering. See the
feature comparison matrix
for the differences.
Briefly, in the free Community Edition you'll get all the Java code support - various
refactorings and code inspections, coding assistance, debugging, TestNG and JUnit testing; CVS, Subversion and Git support, Ant and Maven build integration, Groovy
and Scala (through a separate plugin) support. To learn more and download the Public Preview of IntelliJ IDEA 9
Community Edition, please visit the IntelliJ IDEA Community Edition site
The IntelliJ platform, the common foundation for all our IDEs (IDEA, RubyMine, WebIDE or
MPS), is being open-sourced under APL 2.0, too.
