not a lot of work has been done in this sense. Documentation exists, in 
places, but is not centralized, nor uniform.

For instance, some documentation which illustrates how to create a VS 
project is here:


Documentation for building/using jtreg plugin for IntelliJ is here:


Sadly, we do not have documentation when it comes to creating an 
IntelliJ project (or Netbeans, I know there's support for that too).

For IntelliJ project, there's a script in bin/idea.sh which generates 
the project - more details on that option are contained in this very old 


It would be nice to have a single md file (perhaps the existing ide.md 
file) containing all the required information. Any contrubution is 
welcome in this area!
