This video outlines our use of IntelliJ to develop Spring apps.
Local Development Environments Workshop
Installing IntelliJ IDEA on a Mac
Intall IntelliJ IDEA on Windows
As we begin the adventure of writing our first web application in Java,
we'll find it most useful to use an IDE instead of Treehouse Workspaces.
Remember, IDE stands for integrated development environment, and
is where we write our Java source code.
If you you worked through our local development environments course,
you probably have IntelliJ IDEA installed as a Java IDE.
Well the ultimate edition of IntelliJ has great integrated support for
Spring applications, the free Community Edition will work quite well for us too.
If you don't have IntelliJ installed on your computer,
you should check out the local development environments course for details.
In the teacher's notes, you'll see a link to the course,
as well as a link to instructions that help you install IntelliJ.
If you have any difficulties installing, please post your questions in the forum.
Otherwise, I'll see you in the next video after you're done.
