  • IntelliJ plugin idea

    Hi guys,

    I was wondering if anyone here has some experience in creating an intellij plugin?

    Currenly, when you're creating a form, you kinda need to start up the application to testdrive the form. For my own development, I've created a utility class that loads a certain RCP context and then shows a JFrame with the content of a form. I then add a main method to my forms so I can run them independently of the application.

    This gave me an idea for IDEA . What if you could create a Spring RCP facet, which enables you to enter a RCP application context within the module? And that you then could right-click on any form within IDEA to "test drive" the form? I'm sure this might speed up development in most cases...

    If anyone already has done some IntelliJ plugin development, let me know. I don't think this is a lot of effort, but then again, I don't have a clue on plugin development for IntelliJ...
