I've been having some problems importing gradle projects into IDEA. When I started, I only had Oracle's Java 8 installed on my mac, but after looking at the system requirements, I noticed that it requires Java 6. I have a couple of questions:
1) Since the system requirements do not specify "or above," should I assume that I need version 6 installed?
2) Does the Mac version of IDEA require the apple distribution of Java 6?
3) How does IntelliJ determine which version of Java to use? It is not using JAVA_HOME from my shell.
