Question #1 - Is it possible to successfully compile and run/debug in the Android emulator an Android project using Gradle in Intellij 12?
I tried to make this work but as I explain here, I failed.
Question #2 - Can Gradle use in Intellij 12 for a Java only project (e.g. not Android) and a simultaneous instance of Android Studio 0.3.0 using Gradle Co-Exist?
When I run both IDEs at the same time (on different projects) I get all sorts of odd Gradle errors. Everything from not enough memory in the VM (when I have over a gig of RAM completely free) to null pointers to build failures. These problems all seem to go away if I only run one or the other but that's a problem because I'm developing a peer to peer system that needs to be tested with both running. I have tried to change the Gradle user folders to different folders but that doesn't seem to fix things.
Question #3 - Is it 'safe' to open an Android 0.3.0 project in Intellij 12?
I unfortunately did this with my key project (I was trying to unify everything in IDEA rather than split across two IDEs) and the project got horked. I fixed most of the problems but I still can't get the thing to run right. :( At this point I'm re-creating the entire project from scratch in Android 0.3.0 to try to get it back in a running state. May I assume the obvious - that it's a really bad idea to open an Android 0.3.0 project in Intellij 12? (As opposed to, it's o.k. and I somehow got really unlucky)
