IdeaJAD question...

Why am I forced to choose the output directory from a drop down list of my source directories.

I don't want to decompile to my project source directories. I'd like the decompiled files to sit in some temporary directory (that I can specify) so that I can delete the files after use.

Am I misusing the plugin?

I agree. I create a "temp" src directory just for IdeaJad right now but
I don't think that should be necessary.

I send all of mine to .IntelliJIdea/decompile. This way all of my
projects can take advantage of them. I also put this directory as a
library (source only) in all my projects (ordered after all other sources).

But then you have to add that src directory(.IntelliJIdea/decompile) to
all your projects so it shows up in the dropdown, right? I don't want to
have to do that. You should be able to choose a directory that's not in
your project, like your library directory, to send them to.

That is true.

I wish there was a way for the plugin to do this automatically.

1) Indicate where the decompile source goes
2) Optionally include the decompiled source as the last non-deployable
source in my project.
3) Maybe optionally delete the sources on browser close. I wouldn't use
this, but some might.

I'll send Hendrik a link to this thread. Hopefully he'll have time to implement it.

What IDEA needs is a new type of source directory for generated files.

They're part of the "syntax checking" paths, but not part of other bits
they don't need to be in.

Thanks for emailing me Brad.

I would love to fix this - it has been on my plate for quite a while. Unfortunately I am currently working 14h days, which leaves little time. Maybe in a couple of weeks.

Sorry,

Hey Hendrik-

I would also love to see this implemented.
