Yesterday I switched to IntelliJ IDEA from Eclipse.
I am using JRebel with WebSphere Server 7 as well.
Everything now seems to be working somewhat fine, except that when I modify a Java file, and hit save, IntelliJ does not re-compile the file, in order for JRebel to pick it up.
The Eclipse "Build Automatically" feature resolved this issue.
In IntelliJ IDEA, I have to hit CTRL+SHIFT+9 to re-compile the relevant class for JRebel to pick it up. If changes are done across two files, I have to do this on each and one of them and since IntelliJ uses the save all mechanism, its pretty hard to know what to recompile manually which I am not really interested in doing either.
Isn't there a way to make IntelliJ to do this on its own?
