Guys,

It takes me almost 30 minutes for intelliJ to get started on my machine and even after that subsequent actions that I do once firing up the IDE also takes a lot of time. Before I get fedup did anyone here also face the same problems?

I guess this could be because of those startup plugins. Could anyone please help me disabling them?

Nope. But, 30 minutes is really long.
Check that your project directory is local and not on the network.
Also, increasing the max memory for IJ might help.
To remove the plugins, go to Settings -> Plugins. Right click on any plugin shown in the list of installed plugins and choose Disable (or Uninstall, can't remember).

Guys,

Can anyone also point me to some references on how to run JUnit tests with intelliJ? I'm not able to find enough reference materials on the net for using intelliJ.

I'm planning to buy one of them (either intelliJ 8 or the MyEclipse Enterprise Workbench 7.0). But the problem is with IDEA, I'm not able to find some good materials that help me get handson with most of the features that I need for my project. I'm here asking for some suggestions from fellow users on these two IDE's.

IntelliJ's online help is quite good; just open the "Help" menu, and start reading.

To run a JUnit test, you first write a JUnit test class, of course, right-click on the file in the Project tab, and choose "Run XXXTest" (where XXXTest is the name of your class, of course.)

I succeeded doing it with intelliJ.

Guys, could you please offer me your suggestion as to which one to buy among,

IntelliJ IDEA or MyEclipse Workbench Professional Edition

I have been so used to Eclipse and I find it much difficult to get adopted to IntelliJ's features and environment. My main consideration is to work with Maven in these IDE's. I have not explored on how the new MyEclipse Workbench supports Maven with it's all new Maven4MyEclipse plugin. Anyone has already tried it, please share your views on it.

After a week long thought and trial process, I finally settled with MyEclipse Professional Edition and purchased the yearly subscription. I found it to be decent with the Maven plugin that it has, but however it has a bug with respect to updating new softwares as there seems to be a well known issue with proxies. Hope they rectify it soon.

Does anyone know about the bug that I'm talking about in MyEclipse Enterprise workbench?
