Can't get both 2019.2.2 and 2019.2.1 to run on Mac at same time

Answered

We have older code that uses an older Gradle and when trying to build it with 2019.2.2 it says you must update Gradle to run with Java 11. Well looking into it it's not that simple and would require a lot of changes. On Windows we just installed both versions and could run both at the same time. On the Mac we can only run one at a time as launching the other just brings the current window to the foreground.

The best solution would be is there a way to get 2019.2.2 to use Java 8 to run Gradle for a specific project? The project SDK is set to Java 8 but that doesn't matter.

If the above isn't possible how can I run both 2019.2.1 and 2019.2.2 together at the same time on Mac OS Mojave?

Ok thanks! Will there be any lost functionality?

Jupyter Notebook in the Python plug-in will not work as this feature requires Java 11.

Multiple versions can be installed side by side via https://www.jetbrains.com/toolbox/app/ .

So with the Toolbox can can I?

1. Install 2019.2.2 Java 8 and 2019.2.2 Java 11 together?

2. Install 2019.2.1 Java 8 and 2019.2.2 Java 11 together?

After installing it seems I can only do 2019.2.2 and 2019.1.4.

Toolbox doesn't allow to install choose JBR8 version right now, it defaults to JBR11.

You can install 2019.2.2 and 2019.1.4.
