This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
Sorry, I cannot help you with IntelliJ. Are you willing to compile and deploy the app by hand? If so then I will be happy to help you. But if what you want to do is figure out why IntelliJ is not doing things correctly (why it is obviously placing an older copy of the method into the app), then I will move this question to the IDE forum.
