Two Questions on IJ Idea

Hi All I have two questions I'm puzzled:
1. How do I upgrade to Idea 9.02 from 9.01 without re-installing?
2. How do I add Library to application (Let say MySQL Connector J jar file) to IDEA project?

Thanks

Hi Stefano,

  1. Main menu -> Help -> Check for updates;
  2. Project Structure (Ctrl+Alt+Shift+S) -> Libraries -> Add Library ('+' button);


Regrads, Denis

You should be fine after that. However, there may be a problem with your firewall/proxy settings that doesn't allow IDEA to perform autoupdate.

You can do the following then - download IDEA 9.0.2 archive and manually unpack it to the current IDEA installation. IDEA archives - Ultimate Edition, Community Edition.

Thanks again Dennis,
the method worked although it screwed my orignal idea-ic.sh and I have to rewrite JDK_HOME.
But I have 9.02 now  :^O

Welcome.

Am I right assuming that you defined JDK_HOME at IDEA start script? It's much better to define it as environment variable in order to avoid such manual setup on subsequent IDEA changes.
