IntelliJ IDEA 8 Groovy Intentions in 2:45

The Groovy plugin within IntelliJ 8 offers Alt+Enter triggered intentions to simpily, modify, and groovify your code.

The full list of intentions is on the JeyGroovy wiki, but here is a 2 minute 45 second video demonstration for those too lazy to read:

Trying to make this screencast has been a nightmare: bought microphone, doesn't work; upgrade IDEA, license expired; bought firewire card, out of PCI Ports; record screencast, can't add audio track; format to .swf, text illegible; pour huge glass of gin, no tonic. It can't get any worse.

All these IDEA posts are preparation for the Groovy IDE Shootout at Groovy.MN this Tuesday. Stop by and say Hi!

It's always nice to find someone else who enjoys gin.

I'm looking forward to Tuesday.

Nice visualization of the intentions Hamlet.

I'm bummed that I'm not going to be able to make it to GUM this Tuesday (my wife has night classes for the next couple of months).

I'm hoping that you guys come out of it with some artifacts around the different IDEs (actually things like this video were pretty much what I was hoping for :).

I'd also be interested to hear what people think the top 3-5 key shortcuts are for each of the different IDEs.
