JDK 1.5 works under 1138

Excellent, EAP 1138 compiles/runs apps with JDK1.5beta. Most excellent ;)

Now, if only those syntax extensions worked...

To save everyone going through the same confusion I had:

You have to add "-source 1.5" to the Compiler option "Additional Javac command line parameters".

to get generics to compile.

there is a download link(button) which takes you to the a early access login page and once you login .. you can download

hope that helps

Thanks for helping me out,
another question where to find the Documentation,
is there some available?

Actually, you probably want to use the beta that came out today instead:

I tried this and it didn't seem to work for me. My problem is
that I get a message to the effect that collect.jar is not found.

Presumably the reason it works for you is that you are really
depending on collect.jar from an earlier installation.

You don't want to set "Use Generics Enabled Compiler." You probably don't want to use IDEA's generics support with the JDK 1.5, since they use incompatible variance syntaxes. IDEA supports the old List<+Number> syntax, while the official syntax for 1.5, and in the beta, is the List<? extends Number> syntax. Mixing these causes IDEA to mark errors where there aren't really any.

I am afraid IDEA does not support even that.

I thought IDEA supported adding-generics-2.0, which used the +- syntax, didn't it?
