One of the benefits of using an ide is the ability to use the debugging tool. To debug a program, let's open an existing project that I have provided in the exercise files folder called Grades. There are several ways to use existing code in your Intellij application. In the exercise files folder, I have only included the java file and not the entire project. So we need to create a new project in Intellij and then we can copy and paste the file into our project folder.
- [Voiceover] One of the big advantages of using an IDE,…such as IntelliJ, is the ability to use…what we call, the de-bugging tool.…Once we have our program written and compiled successfully,…and we're able to run it,…sometimes it's difficult to find logic errors.…Which are errors that don't cause a Compile Error,…but maybe the program doesn't run as we expect.…I think the best way to explain the de-bugging tool,…is to use it and explore a program…that I've already written.…There are several ways to use existing code…in the IntelliJ application.…
In the Exercise Files folder, I've included…just the dot Java file for a project called Grades…and not the entire project folder itself.…So we need to create a new project.…Let's go ahead and click on Create New Project.…It's going to be a Java project, so we'll click Next.…And then we'll click Next again.…We're going to name the project Grades and click Finish.…There are several ways to use existing code…in the IntelliJ application.…For this activity, I'm gonna show you…
