IntelliJ IDEA helps handle information stored in relation databases, from within Java EE and Web applications. To address such a database, you have to configure it as a data source.
IntelliJ IDEA supports persistence technologies and frameworks by means of the appropriate facets that should be enabled in modules.
With the data sources defined and the necessary facets added, you can use the technology of your choice to create applications that will communicate with the respective database and provide persistence of information.
