I know this isnt supported.
With that said:
Has anyone got 4.5.1 running under JDK5 RC?
Ive set the JRE up and supplied the correct -D flag, and IDEA starts up. However, when I try and run my unit tests, IDEA fails while trying to find com.sun.tools.jdi.SocketTransport
This class is not shipped with JDK5 RC.
It is with 1.4.x (in tools.jar) - and I have this linked from ./jre/lib/tools.jar - the RC does not contain this class (IT has a SocketTransportService.class, amongst others).
Im trying to find a workaround for the focus issues with 4.5.1 under Linux - thought I might give JDK5 a shot.
