Sorry if this has been posted elsewhere, I couldn't find an up to date, complete response:
What's the status of running IDEA 4.5.4 on JRE 1.5? I think it's still not officially supported, but is there anyone out there who's been able to get it to work successfully or are there issues I should be aware of?
I'd like to run on 1.5 b/c I hear GC is much better and that seems to be the source of frequent annoying pauses I get when I save my large project.
I've set the lax.nl.current.vm to the location of my jdk 1.5 vm and added -Didea.no.jdk.check=true to my idea.lax. Anything else I should do? I'm running IDEA on Linux, if that helps.
