    I was wondering if there's an IntelliJ/Eclpise plugin or any program that would allow me to edit plugins on the fly. So I won't need to export jar file every time and restart the server. I mean I don't mind doing so, but it would save a huge amount of time if such program exist.

    You may get away with realoding the server.

    In eclipse you can attach a remote debugger to the server, which means changes in methods can be made while the server is running and will be instantly applied if you hit CTRL+S for saving.

    You are not able to add methods or things like these, this is a limitation of Java. There are tools like JRebel which can circumvent that, although I am not sure if it is free.

    There might be free alternatives for JRebel and the remote debugger is probably possible with IntelliJ.
    If somebody else knows some, I would be glad to know them!

    Free for a week then you need to pay. As far as I know there are no free alternatives that offer what JRebel does.

    This is unfortunate then. But thanks for the clarification!

    @bwfcwalshy Afaik they had a free to use/one year license when you would sign up... But I'm unsure if that is still valid.

    @I Al Istannen Thanks for this suggestion, I will look more deeply onto this. This would be a very useful thing for efficiency

    I would be also interested if you find a solution... ;)
