  1. I was wondering if i should make the switch from eclipes to intelliJ. What are the benefits of using intelliJ because i see some devs that use it
     
  2. Tbh it's not that big of a different it just has some better things then Eclipse like the maven support and refactorings. So if your a new developer you can stick with eclispe for now. :)
     
  3. oh ok, ty for clearing this up :)
     
  4. There's Eclipse plugins for Maven and you can refactor stuff also in Eclipse.
     
  5. I use Intelij and in the beginning it is like shit, because you don't know how everything works. But at the end, everything goes much faster in Intelij then in Eclipse. At least for me. You have such nice features like: Smart auto complete, improved auto-debugging, CRTL-Click's on everything, and such more. GO GIVE IT A TRY
