Capable and Ergonomic
Java * IDE
*Actually, much more than just Java

productive java

Every aspect of IntelliJ IDEA is specifically designed to maximize developer productivity.

Together, powerful static code analysis and ergonomic design make development not only productive but also an enjoyable experience.

Deep intelligence

After IntelliJ IDEA's indexed your source code, it offers blazing fast and intelligent experience by giving relevant suggestions in every context: instant and clever code completion, on-the-fly code analysis and reliable refactoring tools.

Out-of-the-box experience

Mission-critical tools such as integrated version controls systems and a wide variety of supported languages and frameworks are at hand — no plugin hustle included.

Smart code completion

While the basic completion suggests names of classes, methods, fields, and keywords within the visibility scope, the smart completion suggests only those types that are expected in the current context.

Framework-specific assistance

While IntelliJ IDEA is an IDE for Java, it also understands and provides intelligent coding assistance for a large variety of other languages such as SQL, JPQL, HTML, JavaScript, etc., even when the language expression is injected into a String literal in your Java code.

Productivity boosters

The IDE predicts your needs and automates the tedious and repetitive development tasks so you can stay focused on the big picture.

Developer ergonomics

In every design and implementation decision that we make, we keep in mind the risk of interrupting the developer's flow and do our best to eliminate or minimize it.

The IDE follows your context and brings up the corresponding tools automatically.

Unobtrusive intelligence

The coding assistance in IntelliJ IDEA is not about only the editor: it helps you stay productive when dealing with its other parts as well: e.g. filling a field, searching over a list of elements; accessing a tool window; or toggling for a setting, etc.
