eclipse-style -data switch?

Hello,

you can start up eclipse with a switch named -data: eclipse.exe -data {MyWorkspaceDir}. This results in eclipse after startup to be hooked to {MyWorkspaceDir}. So you don't have to switch to {MyWorkspaceDir} manually. Is there something similar for IDEA?

Thanks, Oliver

Hello.

There is no workspace conception in IDEA, so the answer can't be exact.

To switch to different application config you can edit bin/idea.properties file in the IDEA installation and restart. Please see the file content.

To start with opening another project (that is wider entity than Eclipse project) you can pass a project path to IDEA lancher like: idea.exe C:/path-to-project

Regards,
Alexander.
