Episode 2, IDE #

Choosing the right IDE will help you code faster, with less bugs.

This material is purely about coding Spring Boot apps with Java. Therefore we’ll focus on what matters most.

You need to get the Ultimate edition - not the Community one.

The huge difference is in the support for Spring Boot.

Please, do not install the default proposed plugins. If you need help with that, I can provide it for a small fee –> https://becoming.tech/#author--contact.

Or use my article about it: https://becoming.tech/docs/java/season_1/episode_6/

Alternatives #

  1. Eclipse or a Spring Boot optimized version
  2. NetBeans - Look for LTS version
  3. VS Code with Spring Boot Extension Pack
