Howto create an external compiler in a custom language plugin for IDEA 14

I'm trying to create a custom language plugin for IDEA 14, to support assembly language. I know how to make the core functionalities, sush as, file type, module, sdk, sintax highlightning, etc, but I have problems howto create the compiler. I cannot find information how can i call an external compiler. The information that I found, only works with the older version of IDEA. How can I make this? Can you provide some documentation to do this, or an example?

best regards,
Nuno Cardoso.

Here's some documentation on the external make system:

As for examples, you can look at classes extending BuilderService in the IntelliJ IDEA Community Edition source code.

Please let us know if you have more specific questions.
