Besides the obvious answer that one is for the platform and one is for
the project, what is the difference between the platform SDK and the
project SDK in terms of plugin development?
I am not sure what to specify in each of these,.
Actually, I am a little confused about these and the modules and
libraries settings also. I just don't know what IntelliJ want me to put
in for these options.
In Project Settings there's a Project SDK (standard development kit).
Not sure if you're looking for the Java SDk, like 1.6 or what. Then in
Platform Settings (what platform exactly?) there's input for SDKs (plural) and
an input for classpath, source path and all this kind of thing. Are you
looking for the source path to Sun's Java sources or the sources to some
part of the OpenAPI (which part?) or the sources of the community edition
(which starts at what folder exactly?) or the sources to the plugin I am authoring?
Then there's the JDSK home path.. not sure what to put in there.
I am trying to set up an environment for developing plugins. I have read
the "setting up the IDE for plugins" page, but actually it's not that
clear when you're talking about platform SDK or project SDK or the java
SDK or what.
