If I try to set IDEA_JDK, IDEA won't start. I get "com.apple.launchd.peruser.635759893: (com.jetbrains.intellij.67616) Exited with code: 1" in the console log.
I have to edit JVMVersion in /Applications/IntelliJ\ IDEA\ 13.app/Contents/Info.plist to make IDEA run with JDK 1.8 (or 1.7).
Does anyone know how to run IDEA on a newer JDK without editing Info.plist on OSX?
I'm trying this with the latest EAP, but I have a feeling the behaviour is the same in 13.x.
