RubyMine and Ruby versions

Guys, I have three applications using different versions of
Ruby (1.8.6, 1.8.7 and 1.9.x) and also different versions of Rails (1.2.6, 2.3.2and 3.x). With the IDE RubyMine I can work with all three versions? Or will Ineed to use the RVM.

Thanks ...

Hello Arthur,

Actually it doesn't matter whether you have them separately or within RVM, you should have only one of them selected as Ruby SDK at the moment.

RubyMine supports both usecases. But RVM in general is more convenient for working with several ruby installations on Unix systems. Advantages - 1. easy to install new sdk version / update existing 2. gemsets are also extremely useful. 3. all sdk will be stored in one place and have similar files/folders layout 4. it is easy to use them in console, not only in IDE
