Java Applications and Spaces don’t work well together

Spaces is great. Except that it does not work with Java applications. Try to start IDEA or JConsole and you will notice that command-tabbing to that application will not active the space that it is on. It is also not possible to give Java applications a fixed spaces: you can select for example IDEA.app or NetBeans.app in the Spaces Preferences but it will not be added to the ‘Application Assignments’ list. Lame.

    If you are in one space and try to alt+tab to Zend Studio (which is a java application) it doesn’t work. Neither to click the icon in the dock.
