Some months ago I was exposed to some serious subliminal
advertesing on IntelliJ by no one less but a Java Champion.

Fact is I can't really switch from one IDE to another as
I'd wish, because the project team more or less determines
the IDE.

But a couple of things I'm particularly interested in are:
1.) the types of refactorings you support
2.) which well known profilers support IntelliJ
3.) which are the J2EE servers you support

These are some issues that limit the applicability of the
IDEs I'm currently using to bring them from one project to

Kind Regards,

Hello Gian,

IntelliJ IDEA supports more than 20 refactorings. You can find a complete list of supported refactorings, along with their descriptions, at Many additional automated code transformations are available as context-specific intention actions. Refactoring is supported not only for Java, but also for JSP, HTML/XML and CSS.

As for the profilers that can be used with IntelliJ IDEA, we recommend JProfiler ( or YourKit (

IntelliJ IDEA supports Tomcat, Weblogic, WebSphere, JBoss, Geronimo and GlassFish application servers.
