Request: Make Compiler (Jikes) configuration global


After being somewhat dismissive about Jikes' trumpeted compilation speed, I now find I cant live without it.

However, I have to configure it for every project (setting the path to the executable and everything).

Is there any chance we can make this global?

Or at least make the compiler selection like the JDK selection?

You can define it in the Template Project Settings (under the File menu).

You are right.

The other problem is that Jikes is practically guaranteed to be in a different directory for different instances of IntelliJ.

The jikes details dont really belong in the Project Settings (just like the JDK details dont)

Good point. I think this SCR addresses the problem (there may be others, but this was the first one I found):
