Selena RC4: Still not possible to create Idea SDK?

Hi all,

As far as I can see this question is not yet answered and bug IDEA-15607 is still open. Even in RC4 (7343) I still get a popup when pointing to the IntelliJ installation folder as the IntelliJ SDK (see screenshot). I installed the exe which contained the bundled 1.6 jre.

I did read the posts of Martin Fuhrer but no official workaround from JetBrains yet.

So how does one create an IntelliJ SDK?

Thanks

Raymond Brandon

from what i understood, you need an external (standalone, not from IDEA) JDK 6 (although JDK 5 must be chosen for those IDEA versions that were not using java 6).

I didn't try the new http://download.jetbrains.com/idea/idea7343-jdk15.zip yet. Guess it would allow choosing a JDK 5 as internal JDK for the newer IDEA SDKs

You're absolutely right. I'm using JDK 1.4 for IDEA 4 and 5, and JDK 5
for IDEA 6 and 7. For IDEA 7 I have two installations: one built out of
idea7343.zip (Java 6) which I use to work with, and another build out of
idea7343-jdk15.zip (Java 5) which I use to compile plugins.

With the latest version RC5 (released acouple of minutes ago) it is possible to accept the current installation folder as Idea SDK which is then recognized properly and a new popup show the Java SDK version.

So should we now release multiple versions of our plugins each compiled against a different SDK?

Hello Raymond,

It should be enough to release one version compiled with JDK 1.5 (which works
on both Macs, that have JDK 1.5 only, and Windows/Linux with JDK 1.6).
