Using locally compiled IDEA as an IDEA sdk

Hi,

I am trying to develop a new plugin using IDEA 9 ultimate edition. I have also patched the Community IDEA with some of my changes which I want to test with my plugin. The steps I am following to get both of them playing together is to go to project structure in the plugin dev environment and select my newly compiled IDEA's out/production folder as a 'IDEA sdk' folder, but I get an error message after selection. It says "Failed to detect JDK version required for IDEA".

  • How can I make the out/production folder seem like a valid IDEA sdk?


thanks
Siddharth

Hello Siddharth,

you should build jars from the patched version (with build/update.bat(.sh)).
The jars would be located in out/deployCE. Then you should create bin folder
and copy Build.txt from your IDEA installation/bin

After all that you will be able to point to out/deployCE as IDEA SDK installation
home.

Thank you

Thanks Anna.

questions

  • I rebuilt the project from the run menu. That did not put any deploy sub directory in the out directory. Where should I be looking for it?
