Running Demetra alongside 5.1

Hi,

Is it possible to run Demetra on the same machine as IDEA 5.1 without any configuration files getting mixed up?

It is possible since they use different config/home directory.

Jetbrains modified the default idea.properties file so that Demetra looks in ${user.home}/.IntelliJIdea60 for the config (user settings & plugins) and system (cache) data.

Your 5.1 installation will continue to look in ${user.home}/.IntelliJIdea50

So, if you keep your project files separate, then you shouldn't have any problems.

And Demetra does not change the project files in that way, that 5.1
cannot read it any more?

While 5.1 can read the project files, it strips Demetra specific
settings on save.

I've been using an environment variable to point to my idea.properties, which
in turns points to system and config folders that are not in the default
location.

If I change the environment variable to point to a new demetra.properties,
is there a command line param I can pass to irida to override the environment
variable? That way, my irida installation will be hardcoded to point to
my irida properties, and every installation of demetra will automatically
point to demetra.properties (via environment variable).

I also use the IDEA_PROPERTIES environment variable to point to my own idea.properties file which puts the intellij data in a custom location D:/data/IntelliJ50


I haven't tried it, but you can also set the idea.properties location with -Didea.properties.file=]]>. If you have the commandline line argument and the environment variable set, I'm not sure which takes precedence.

How can I create a project from an existing set (*.ipr, *.iws, *.iml) under a new name to work with Demetra on the copy? I want to leave my 5.1 production project completely alone. I know that just copying does not work because there are internal references.

Thanks,
Peter

Hi,

Copy/paste files in Project view should work
