Modifying an existing installation of Idea

Hello,

I have an Ultimate edition Idea installation and want to make changes to the vfs part (JarHandler.java).

One way to do this is to make the changes using the community edition and copy the changed .class files to the existing idea.jar in ultimate edition.

Will this suffice, do I have to do this differently?

thanks
Siddharth

Hello Siddharth,

This will work, but it would be much better if you could describe what exactly
you needed to change, so that we would be able to support this without the
need of patching IDEA installations.

Thanks Dmitry,

This is a specific change required for the build system I am using. Let me investigate more. Once I understand the implications better, I can let you know if this change can be made into intellij itself.

regards
Siddharth
