I developed a plugin initially for IDEA-6 plugin sdk and tested it both on Windows and Mac-OS-X with IDEA-7.0.3.
Now I try to switch to the sdk of 7.0.3. However it requires jdk1.6 and while working on Windows, when trying to run it on the Mac which comes pre-installed with JDK1.5 the plugin fails to load because of incompatible classfiles.
I guess I can solve this by installing JDK1.6 on the Mac (which is now available) but I don't want to force it - IDEA-7.0.3 works fine on Mac with JDK1.5.
Why does the sdk of 7.0.3 requires jdk1.6 ?
