Hi.
First, let me congrats you for this new piece of art.
What is the idea of "Facet"? (Spring facet, Hibernate facet)
Thanks.

Hello John,

A facet is a single place where you can specify the settings for a particular technology used in your project. You can tell where the configuration files are located, how the configuration should be validated, how the deployment should happen, etc.

You can find more information on the use of facets in the IntelliJ IDEA help system.

Hello Muhammad,

The online help for IntelliJ IDEA 7.0 will be published on our Web site in a few days. In the meanwhile, if you have specific questions, I'll be happy to answer them.

You can also download an evaluation version of IntelliJ IDEA.

The "facets" used by IDEA are quite simply the same thing as Eclipse "project natures".

Previous versions of IDEA had J2EE modules, Web modules, EJB modules, etc...using the new facet system you just have a "Java module" which you can configure with multiple facets.

IMHO the new system is both simpler as well as much more flexible.
