I scanned through the release notes for the last couple EAP releases,
but did not see the multiple project support in them.
This is a big feature, so I can understand if it is not there in even
preliminary form as yet. Any ideas when it will show?
Here is a brief explanation of our structure, and the use case that
Assume a base project in one directory, an intermediate project that
uses the base project in a different directory, and several dozen
applications using both the base and the intermediate project. Again,
each has its own directory. The JetBrains plan would have each
application include a reference to the base and the intermediate.
Assume both the intermediate and and an application project are open -
would IDEA handle a change to intermediate gracefully? In other words,
would the change information propagate to the application project in
good order, without lots of rebuilding? We might have a dozen apps
open, as we want to catch changes in intermediate that cause any one of
the apps to break, but we sure do not want to compile the intermediate
classes a dozen times.
The test, of course, will come when we try it, but it is probably easier
to think about in this stage than later.
