IntelliJ IDEA 2016.3 Help

Creating a Module from Scratch

On this page:

Creating a new module from scratch

  1. Open the project you want to add a module to, and select File | New | Module.

    As a result, the New Module wizard opens. (There are also other ways of accessing this wizard, see Opening the New Module wizard.)

  2. On the first page of the wizard, in the left-hand pane, select the module category. This may be the technology that you are going to use, the platform or runtime that your development is going to target, etc.

    The settings in the right-hand part of the page as well as the next steps depend on the selected module category. For corresponding instructions, see:

Opening the New Module wizard

Provided that a project is open in IntelliJ IDEA, you can access the New Module wizard from:

  • The main menu: File | New | Module.
  • The Project tool window: right-click a module folder and select New | Module.
  • The Project Structure dialog: in the leftmost pane select Modules, above the pane to the right click /help/img/idea/2016.3/new.png and select New Module.
