While registering for a major upcoming Java developer conference (hint I: SF) you are prompted to answer several survey questions.
Have a look at the following question:
" * What development environments do you use? (check all that apply)"
| Microsoft Visual Studio||NetBeans|
| Oracle Application Express|| Oracle Business Intelligence EE|
|Oracle Forms||Oracle JDeveloper|
|Oralce SQL Developer|| Other Java IDE|
| Other SQL Editors|| Quest Software Toad|
| Text Editors||N/A|
What's missing here? Maybe just the best Java IDE; JetBrains' IntelliJ IDEA! Snub, oversight, or cosmic misalignment? No sweat either way, I am just sharing what I came across.
By the way, can anybody name the conference registration from which this question appeared (hint II: September 19-23rd)? We will be sharing more details about our attendance shortly.
Update, August 27th:
IntelliJ IDEA is now available as an option in the list of development environments on the JavaOne San Francisco registration survey.
Thank you Diane and Nicole for your prompt action.
