    Default intelliJ IDEA

    Regarding intelliJ IDEA, which Java version is this IDE used for? Is it used for creating Android apps? Can users of Java SE 8.0 and other versions of Java use it as well?

    Which IDE is most common in a corporate environment?

    - You can code in any version of Java with IDEA, since you must specify a JDK for your project, so feel free to install JDK 1.5 if you need if for a project. You can set a language level for your project, so you won't be able to use for example lambdas in your 1.5 project.
    - Yes, you can code for Android with it
    - IDEA will run with Java 8

    In our house it's IntelliJ IDEA, but that's not free (at least not the enterprise version), so lots of companies might enforece NetBeans or Eclipse because they don't want to pay. To be fair, the subscription model of JetBrains is not bad. Yes, it does cost money, but that's peanuts compared to the other development costs there are (books, training, magazine subs, etc).

    Android Studio, which is Google's recommended Android development IDE, is a version of IDEA...just focussed on Android.
    With a regular IDEA you should be able to install the relevant packages to produce the same effect, though I've never bothered...I just have them as separate IDEs.
    Please do not ask for code as refusal often offends.
