Code navigation. (being able to find method and field declarations and usages.)

We have a J2EE project at work where both IntelliJ and Eclipse are in use so I have been able to compare the abilities of both.

IntelliJ allows me to navigate between Java, JSP, JS, CSS and pretty must every other type of file. With Eclipse I need to install a plugin to be able to navigate through file types other than Java.

@Rachel. Hmmm. In Eclipse Ctrl-Shift-R (on mac Command-Shift-R), open up "Open Resource" dialog where you can type whatever you want and it will match ANY file, not just Java. Ctrl-Shift-T will do the same, but limit it only to Java types.

This is the keymap of IntelliJIDEA.

Just read this article and you able to doing amazyng features with IntelliJ which you do not even dream of in Eclipse. For me, the most useful are Ctrl-Y , Ctrl-Enter, Ctrl-Alt-T, Shift-F6 and auto-completion.

For me there are two points:

  1. Refactorings (IntelliJ is great in the refactorings it provides)

  2. Plugin stability, I've always found that when I have a stable install of Eclipse, I get a new plugin and everything comes down in flames and I have to reinstall everything.
