CVS and .iml, .ipr, .iws files

Could somebody share the experience about storing Idea configuration
files .iml, .ipr, .iws in CVS?
I store those files in CVS. At the same time each team member wants to
have its own settings: one may work on Windows, another one on Linux,
and yet another one on Mac. All are working on the same project.

Hello Tom,

Could somebody share the experience about storing Idea configuration
files .iml, .ipr, .iws in CVS?


You should put .ipr and .iml files in CVS. .iwr files contains info about
which files are open, which breakpoints are set and so on -
you don't want those in the CVS.

Look out for the global settings, such as JDK's and global libraries. If
the project is set up to use a JDK named "JDK 1.5", and you
have it defined as "Java 5.0", you'll have to change that setting before
you can work.

Similarly for global libraies - if you use them, settle on standard names.
Don't have Joe use "Spring framework" and Ben use "Spring 1.2.5".

It might also be a good idea top put some of the files from .IntelliJIdea50/config
into CVS - typically stuff in codestyles, inspections, templates, filetypes

In this way, everybody can use the same codestyle and inspection settings.

I store those files in CVS. At the same time each team member wants to
have its own settings: one may work on Windows, another one on Linux,
and yet another one on Mac. All are working on the same project.
