current JetGroovy plugin prevents Intellij startup

Hi!


The current Plugin (13.9.2007) hangs Intellij (build 7274 and 7269) on startup.

The error message is:
"Plugin AntSupport failed to nitialize:
null
Please remove the plugin and restart IntelliJ Idea"


After that Intellij hangs and has to be forced to quit (on Macos X 1.4.10).

No other plugins are installed under ~/Library/Application\ Support/IntelliJIDEA70


I have also no idea why the AntPlugin is mentioned in the error message.
Removing the JetGroovy-plugins helps to get Idea running again.


Regards,
Dirk

Umm, are you sure it is indeed JetGroovy? It does not cause any problems here, nor anyone else is complaining.

Actually, I'm seeing StackOverflowErrors when I open Groovy source files or switch to a Groovy source file with the latest JetGroovy installed via the plug-in manager. It does not happen on every file or every time I switch, but it has happened twice already (I "Blam[ed] JetGroovy": http://www.jetbrains.net/jira/browse/GRVY-400). If this happened during start-up, say, when reopening a Groovy source file that was open when IDEA was last shut down, it could impair IDEA functionality.

I struggled with a similar problem—certain Java files causing an SOE when the directory in which they lived was scanned by IDEA—and it caused all sorts of flakey behavior, including at least one complete lock-up. This bug has been fixed and should be in today's release, but this appears to be a separate problem. (http://www.jetbrains.net/jira/browse/IDEADEV-15441 and http://www.jetbrains.net/jira/browse/IDEADEV-18472).

In fact, following the two SOEs I encountered, I'm now seeing some of the other flakiness I experienced from 15441 / 18472. I've removed the JetGroovy plug-in, for now. ("Once bitten, twice shy!" and my experience with that other bug was most unpleasant...)

I think I found the reason:

JetGroovy seems to be compiled with jdk6 (class file Version 50.0)
Selena-7274 uses jdk 1.5 on the Mac. I tried the 1.6-beta which crashes with 7274. M2 was
working but had serios redraw-problems.

Is there a reason JetGroovy has to be compiled with 1.6?

The problem I experienced happened on Linux when running IDEA and the (then-) latest JetGroovy under 1.6.

Anyway, Eugene has reported the problem I reported (<http://www.jetbrains.net/jira/browse/GRVY-400>) solved (and a duplicate, though I don't see where he said which bug it duplicates).

As for the fact that JetGroovy is (or was) built with (more importantly, for) JDK 1.6, I don't know. Note that the release you're using was not build under the usual build system, and that may account for it being built for 1.6.

I'm experiencing exactly the same problem (build 7274)...

I have to correct me here. It is possible to run Selena-7274 with the JDK6 availabble for
macosx. You have to disable the yourkit-profiler by removing the agent
("-agentlib:yjpagent") from the VMOptions in "Selena-7274.app/Contents/Info.plist":

VMOptions -Xms16m -Xmx512m -XX:MaxPermSize=92m -Xbootclasspath/p:../lib/boot.jar -ea]]>

PS: lets hope the redraw problems are gone...

This started occurring after I updated to the latest version of JetGroovy. I'm on a Mac. Switching to Java 1.6 had no effect.

The new version of JetGroovy that works with last IDEA EAP is uploaded.

For those like me on the Mac who got stuck with IntelliJ not coming up, remove ~/Library/Application Support/ IntelliiJIDEA70/Groovy and ~/.IntellijIdea70/System/plugins/JetGroovy*.zip
