3136 on OSX - can't set JDK home path

Hi,

I just tried to use 3136 on OSX 10.3.7 (powerbook) but found that I couldn't get compilation working. When I hit "rebuild project" I get a dialog "Cannot obtain path to VM executable for JDK java version '1.4.2_05'. Update JDK Configuration."

However I couldn't find any directory that would satisfy IDEA's "SDK home path" field on the "Configure JDK" dialog. All directories tried resulted in a dialog "The directory selected is not a valid home for Unknown JDK".

It's been a while since I tried an EAP build so maybe I'm missing something. Can anybody help?

Cheers,
-Brendan

For standard (non-plugin) projects, my JDSK home is
/Library/Java/Home

That will set the classpath and sourcepath.
I also set up the javadoc path to point to:
/Developer/Documentation/Java/Reference/1.4.2/doc/api
, but I think I had to download it separately (can't remember).


For plugin projects, you need to create a IntelliJ SDK for each EAP
version, that points to the app, like
/Users/you/dev/IntelliJ IDEA - 3136.app
