MirrorPlugin build failure

I have tried several times with each upgrade to Idea to build the MirrorPlugin. I have failed every time.

So I guess I will finally admit my ignorance of what I'm doing wrong and ask for help.

I unzip the MirrorPlugin.zip file to a C:\MirrorPlugin\ directory, change the build.xml file to reflect where my Idea is (C:\IDEA-EAP\), start Idea and then the MirrorPlugin project, click on the ant window to open it, right click on all, Run Target.

I get the following errors in the Idea message window. I have the openapi.jar in the Idea classpath - what am I doing wrong? Please?

Task: javac

(64,1) C:\MirrorPlugin\build.xml:64: Compile failed; see the compiler error output for details.

...only just noticed this post, I've been relying on the (a little flakey, IMHO) news feed...so I've copied my email response to you in case someone else is affected:


Hi David,

Thank you for reminding me!...I noticed last week that Idea (maybe only build 650+) started to ship with JDOM 1.0 beta 7 (rather than beta 8). The error was due to me using a method only available JDOM 1.0 beta 8.

Why the IntelliJ people went back to beta 7 is anyone's guess :-/

Please download the latest MirrorPlugin version and the problem should have gone away...
