Compile with one JDK, run with another

Hi,

Would it be possible to easily compile my IDEA project with JDK 1.5 and
run/debug it with JDK 1.4.2? The reason is, that I want to use Generics and
compile with the flag "-target jsr14", which seems to create Java
1.4-compatible class files.

Probably this will be implemented as a side effect of j2me support, though
I'm not quite sure.

Any idea from JetBrains?

AFAIK, -source 1.5 -target 1.4 will be disabled in JDK 5...
But it work in generics 2.2...

Thanks!

"-source 1.5 -target 1.4" does not work, but (at least with the rc)
"-source 1.5 -target jsr14" works.

Maybe I'm missing some obvious problems, but can't you use an ANT script
to build your project and just use IDEA to run/debug it?

Hmm, I never tried it. I would need to tell IDEA to use 1.5-compatible
source and use a JDK 1.4 for running/debug...

BTW, maybe such option is for debug. Something like forcing classing JVM?

Thanks!
