I have a project that needs access to JDK_HOME/lib/jconsole.jar in it's library definition. Every time I upgrade the JDK on my machine, I need to update IntelliJ to understand that 1.6 refers to a path in the file system. I also have to update my project to point to the new JDK.
The use of Path Variables would seem to be the solution here. I am unable to find any reference to how to do this or indication if it is even possible.
What I would like to see stored in the project file (.ipr) is something like the following:
<root url="jar://$PROJECT_JDK$/lib/jconsole.jar!/" />
Is there a project or module path variable definition that I have missed?
I am using 8.1
