Project Coin: IDE support

All three of the NetBeans, IntelliJ, and Eclipse IDEs have some level of support in progress for Project Coin's language features.

The recently released NetBeans 7.0 has support for all the Coin features. As explained in its release notes, beyond just recognizing the features in the editor NetBeans 7.0 provides auto-completion to diamond and gives hints to apply the new features to existing code.

As previously announced for IntelliJ IDEA, the builds of IDEA 10.5 EAP (early access program) provide similar quickfix support.

Finally, an Eclipse branch is hosting their efforts to support Project Coin.

As JSR 334 is not quite done yet, I'd expect the IDEs to be updated after JSR 334 is completed to account for any specification changes made in the interim.

Comments:

While both the NetBeans IDE and IntelliJ offers an out-of-the-box solution it is a pitty that again Eclipse is late in the game of supporting the newest Java grammar. How long I waited for the Java 5 support ...

I have been already playing with the Project Coin new features in Netbeans. I hope to have them soon in Eclipse, hopefully in Indigo release.

Thanks for the update!
