I am new to plugin development, so, I am wondering what is the best plugin development workflow? At the moment, I have an Ant goal, which creates a zip file and copies it to the TC data path plugins directory. When I change something, I have to stop TC, redeploy the zip and restart TC.
Is this the best form of plugin development?
Am I able to redeploy the plugin without restarting TC?
Is it possible to eliminate the Ant phase and deploy the plugin from within IDEA Ultimate?
