For the plugins folder contained in the idea-7.0.M1b-dev folder, when I try to set up a project which has java contents of , say images, as source, I seem not to be able to find the correct folder to select as source root (or at least that's what I think m problem is).
So my goal is to see the java files which compose the images plugin as source in a new project. Then I can navigate them and search for things etc etc.
OK so step 1, unzip the contents of the src_images.zip and get this directory structure:
> src>src_images >org>intellij -->images --> all other packages contained in images.
I set 6833 dev (the intelli jdk) to be my jdk.
OK so where do you tell your new project your source is?
Well, since the package names all begin with org.intellij, I tell it the source is src_images.
classes know nothing about anything defined outside themselves. So classes in the same package don't know anything about each other.
so I set the source of the project to be, successively, every likely and unlikely folder up and down the hierarchy- each time with the same result.
so I wipe out the project and start afresh, this time I declare the project NOT to be a plugin, but still give it the intellij JDK
So now I guess there is something I just don't get.
Thanks in advance for any ideas...
