Migrating Eclipse to Intellij (with Subversion)

I've been using Eclipse for several months with the Subversive plugin for Subversion version control. Intellij has been recommended to me.

Is it easy to migrate an Eclipse workspace with 5 Subversion-linked projects to Intellij? What is the procedure in outline?

Hello John,

You can find a how-to on migrating Eclipse projects to IntelliJ IDEA at .

Subversion should not be an issue when migrating - IntelliJ IDEA uses the standard Subversion working copy format, so you will only need to specify Subversion as the version control system used by the project (Settings | Project Settings | Version Control), and it will pick up the rest of the settings automatically.
