How can I set things up to switch from release EAP easily?

The last few builds of Irida have had serious problems that prevent me from getting work done. It's a Beta, so fair enough. The trouble is that when I installed it, it seems like the caches, etc. have taken over and I can't easily switch back to the release version while I wait for an EAP build I can use.

Are there settings I can use during install that will isolate the EAP version enough that I can switch back quickly?

1. Install the eap in it's own directory.

2. Edit /bin/idea.properties and change the config/plugin/system
paths. This is what I use:

  1. path to IDEA config folder

idea.config.path=../config

  1. path to IDEA system folder

idea.system.path=../system

  1. path to user installed plugins folder

idea.plugins.path=../config/plugins

Make your life easier and setup the Current release of idea, not the
EAP, have the special directories this way when you get an eap, you just
download, install and run and you don't have to worry about stepping
over older installs.

Thanks for the help. Hopefully the latest version, with all the JSP fixes will get me working well again.
