I think they mean to automatically create a starter class, based on a template, to which you
would then add the specific functionality.

IDEA does this for classes you reference in your code. If it doesn't exist, it will offer
to create the (stub) class for you. A great feature when you are doing test-first development.

It doesn't sound like much, but this is the sort of brainless nonsense that nickels and dimes
you all day.
