JPA Buddy and React Buddy become part of the JetBrains Family

We welcomed JPA Buddy to the JetBrains Marketplace two and a half years ago. Since then, it has racked up over 4 million downloads to become the top-rated plugin on the marketplace, and has also been ranked among the Top 10 Plugins for IntelliJ-based IDEs. The same team that brought us JPA Buddy also created React Buddy, a plugin for WebStorm and other JetBrains IDEs that has found similar popularity among users.

Today, we’re happy to announce that JPA Buddy and React Buddy will become an integral part of IntelliJ IDEA and other IntelliJ-based IDEs! JetBrains has acquired both products, along with their teams and brands. This acquisition marks a significant milestone for both parties and brings a new wave of enhancements and opportunities to our valued users. By joining forces, we aim to support developers worldwide and provide them with the best possible experience.

The most exciting news for IntelliJ IDEA Ultimate users is that you can now access the full range of JPA Buddy features, including Reverse Engineering, Database Migration Scripts Generation, and DTOs Generation! Learn more about these features and their availability here.

If you are an active JPA Buddy subscriber, rest assured that existing licenses will continue to work until they expire. You will receive an email shortly with more details and instructions on how to proceed.

Feel free to contact us with questions regarding JPA Buddy versions and licensing!
