General availability: HDInsight Tools for IntelliJ
Published date: 06 June, 2016
We're excited to announce the general availability of the HDInsight Tools plug-in for IntelliJ.
For people who develop Java Spark applications on Azure HDInsight, the development cycle of a Spark application from the IDE can be long and tedious. With HDInsight Tools for IntelliJ, users can get started with Spark on HDInsight in just a few minutes. Experienced Spark developers can iterate their development cycle faster and easier.
The plug-in extends IntelliJ to support the Spark job life cycle: create, author, debug, and finally submit the job to a Spark cluster on HDInsight. It integrates well with Azure so that users can navigate Spark clusters and view associated Azure storage accounts. To further boost productivity, the plug-in offers the capability to view Spark job history, display detailed job logs, and show the job output.
You can install the plug-in by going to the IntelliJ repository and searching for HDInsight. If you've already installed the plug-in, IntelliJ will prompt you for the latest update.
