Interview: Open sourcing of IntelliJ IDEA - Part 2
JAXenter: Do you believe that a reduced set of features in terms of Java EE development is an attractive offering to developers, who can get full featured Java EE development environment from Netbeans or Eclipse?
Roman Strobl: We believe Community Edition will be interesting for many types of developers including developers working on Java EE backends, desktop application developers, Groovy developers and others. Obviously Community Edition does not make a fully featured Java EE tooling right now, but things may change in the future once community around Community Edition will start building Java EE plug-ins. Right now we suggest professional developers to look at IntelliJ IDEA Ultimate Edition, which offers a state of art Java EE development environment.
