(I'm new to linux and java but have been on windows and .NET for >12 years, and c++ on Windows for >20 yrs).
I have 2 java projects under Maven. I needed to add another module to projectB so that I can call into it from ProjectA.
I added it and have no problems compiling from the bash shell, but now none of the syntax highlighting, completion, or anything like that works any more in IntelliJ.
I could live with compiling on the command line, I can't debug and editing in this environment is about as useful as using notepad or gedit.
There are no completions to be found or syntax highlights to come through. Evenif I add a line of gibberish to force an error in one of the previously working java files,
and tell intelliJ to build the entire project, it succeeds without showing any errors.
I tried deleting every single iml file in the project and reloading, but no joy. I cleared the cache from the menu as well as deleted the system cache directory.
There is obviously some kind of issue with the project but I don't know where to look to resolve it.
Where do I start so I can figure out what might be causing this disconnect?
