Plugin not loaded when deployed


I have created a plugin with a custom RunConfiguration.

My custom run configuration is loaded correctly when I debug the plugin (

However, when I try to deploy the plugin (according to the  run configuration is not loaded.
The plugin is correctly listed and activated in the Instaleld Plugins section, it is just the run configuration that does not show up.

Any ideas what the reason for that could be?

I am using IntelliJ IDEA 14.0.2 to develop and test the plugin.
Here is my (anonymized) plugin.xml

<idea-plugin version="2">
  <name>Sample Plugin</name>
  <vendor email="" url="">Sample</vendor>

         A sample plugin



  <idea-version since-build="139"/>


  <extensions defaultExtensionNs="com.intellij">
    <configurationType implementation="com.sample.plugin.SampleConfigurationType"/>

Ok, I found the problem.

I built the plugin with Java 1.8 where as IntelliJ runs on Java 1.6 under Mac OS X.
