IDEA 9 XPathView support

I used the XPath support via the XPathView plugin in IDEA 7 in conjuction with the IntelliLang plugin to allow editing of Groovy code embedded in XML files. IDEA 9 doesn't seem to support the XPathView plugin: http://plugins.jetbrains.net/plugin/?idea&id=237. What is required to get the XPath support working for IntelliLang in IDEA 9.0 (Community Edition)?

Does IDEA 9.0 include the necessary XPath libraries now, so it's actually a matter of updating the IntelliLang plugin, or does the XPath plugin need to be updated?

Thanks,

Tom

Hello Tom,

the XPathView and the IntelliLang plugin are both bundled with IDEA 9. In case you copied the
plugins from your IDEA 7 installation, it is possible that this breaks the built-in ones. In that
case please remove the the old plugins from IDEA 9 and things should be fine.

Ok, that can't be the problem then.

The issue is that, in my IDEA 9 Community Edition install, the XPath Condition box in the IntelliLang dialog is not enabled (it is greyed out), both on my existing IntelliLang XML settings that I've imported from IDEA 7, and for any new ones I try to add. The existing ones don't work (e.g. the XML Tag settings are completely ignored). I haven't manually copied around any plugins, but I did import my settings from my old installation of IDEA 7.

Is this feature only available in the Ultimate Edition? The Community Edition feature list claims to include full support for XML and Groovy, which I would have hoped includes this.

Thanks,

Tom

I've answered my own question - XSL and XPath support is not available in the Community Edition according to http://www.jetbrains.com/idea/features/editions_comparison_matrix.html and this is presumably required for this feature. This is an important feature, since we do a lot of script editing in XML files (not web related, by my own embedded workflow scripting system). Still, I think this is an unnecessary limitation for the community edition, considering it claims to have XML and Groovy support.

Thanks,

Tom

Hello Tom,

sorry, I didn't realize that the XPathView plugin is not bundled with IDEA 9 Community Edition. I
don't know if that is intentional, this is something JetBrains should answer. But generally, the
plugin is available as open source and doesn't have any dependencies on the Ultimate version, so you
probably may just copy it from an IDEA 9 Ultimate installation.
