Does anyone out there know if you can set default VM parameters, to be used with all run configurations (even the temporary ones created by right clicking). I have a set of standard VM parameters that I always want (eg -ea and a bunch of -D settings) and then want to extend these on a per configuration basis.
Eclipse does this neatly using VM parameters that are set as part of the JRE configuration (and are then extended by individual run configurations). Idea seems to be missing this (at least I can't find the equivalent functionality anywhere) and it makes the IDE a real pain because you can't simply right-click a test/main class and run it. Instead you have to right click and run, ignore what happens (because, for example, assertions are disabled), edit the run configuration (to put in the default options such as -ea) and then finally run again. Surely I can't be the only one out there who finds this a real pain?
Apologies if I missed something obvious in the GUI and thanks in advance for any help on this problem.
