8.1.1 and OSX

The javaee plugin in 8.1.1 (that a ton of other plugins depend on) was compiled with JDK6, yet the Info.plist file for IDEA 8.1.1 specifies JDK5. This means that IDEA fails to start up at all.

Fixing the Info.plist doesn't really help, given it's pretty much unusable on JDK6 (constant hangs etc). Is there any chance of the plugin being recompiled with the right JDK so us poor OSX users can actually upgrade?

fwiw, I'm not having the same problem.   8.1.1 on my Mac (10.5.6) is running fine... using Java 5.

8.1.1 starts up just fine for me under Java 1.5 on Mac OS X. I have the javaee plugin enabled too.

Also, under Java 1.6 IntelliJ 8.1.1 works just fine for me as well.

Yes, downloading the dmg (which gets automatically unpacked) and dragging the app to /Applications

Hello Hani,

The javaee plugin in 8.1.1 (that a ton of other plugins depend on) was
compiled with JDK6, yet the Info.plist file for IDEA 8.1.1 specifies
JDK5. This means that IDEA fails to start up at all.


How do you know this is the JavaEE plugin and not some third-party plugin?
As far as I know we didn't make any changes to our build scripts which could
have caused such a major regression.

Because that's the error message I get, something like unable to load plugin javaee: invalid class format

I hadn't installed or removed any plugins to the previous EAP. Similarly, after upgrading to the latest EAP, everything works without me having to modify the Info.plist file.

I finally tracked this down, even though the error says that it's due to a bad class in javaee, the actual culprit is the AppEngine integration plugin.

Thank you for spotting it! The fix is under the way
