I checked out the what's new section of version 7 and I really like what I saw. The features were exactly what we use in our projects (spring, hibernate, web services, etc...). Feature-wise, I think this version of Idea is great, but one thing which concerns me more is performance. How does it perform when multiple related projects are open (say 15 projects), and while tomcat is running in debug mode? We currently use Eclipse, I must say that delays are quite noticeable when multiple projects are open. If Idea can perform better in this scenario, I'll definitely propose to using it in our organization. [ November 08, 2007: Message edited by: J Vallejo ]

Note that the concept of "project" is different between Eclipse and IntelliJ IDEA - 15 Eclipse projects will likely become one IntelliJ IDEA project with 15 modules.
Such a number of modules doesn't cause any performance degradation - in fact our own project has about 10 times as many modules, and IntelliJ IDEA copes with it just fine.
