Hi, Jetbrainers.

I am trying to compile plugin for ruby from http://svn.jetbrains.org/idea/Trunk/ruby

I am just opened it in Idea6.0 beta and try to compile but I have a lot of compile errors like this one.

How to solve it?

For language plugins, you need to add idea.jar to your IDEA JDK.

When I try to compile it with the latest beta jars, it tells me that RubyRunConfigurationEditor.java has a problem:

I added idea.jar annotations.jar and open-api.jar to the classpath.

Hello Matthew,

You need to use an IDEA JDK, which automatically adds all required IDEA JAR
files (except for idea.jar) to the classpath. Since you were setting up the
classpath manually, you missed extensions.jar.
