Can't start IntelliJ IDEA with runIDEA [message #1729629] Sat, 16 April 2016 10:49 Go to next message

Hi Guys!

I am very new to Xtext and need it for a project at Uni. I wanted to use IntelliJ IDEA as IDE since I am very used to it.

I used this tutorial to get everything up and running but I can't run the gradle task runIdea, because I get the error in the attachment

What do I need to do, to get this running? - I already tried to use the nightly build of xtext, an older version of IDEA but it always resulted in the error message in the picture pasted above

Thanks in advance for your help!

Cheers mike

I had the same issue. It seems that the XText/XTend plugins generate a bad IDEA version in the gradle scripts.
Open the build.gradle script in the XXX.idea module of your project.
Replace the ideaVersion you have inside by a recent one for IDEA Community 15 EAP or 2016.x EAP.
This is what I have in mine:

//ideaVersion = '143.381.42' // OLD (generated by the xtext plugin)
//ideaVersion = '143.1559.1' // OLD
//ideaVersion = '143.2332.3' // LAST 15 EAP on June, 9th, 2016
ideaVersion = '162.646.4' // LAST 2016.2 EAP on June, 9th, 2016

You can get these versions here:

You should then be able to get a running plugin for IDEA (syntax + validations).
For the generation part, I am still struggling to have it work as in Eclipse.

Have a good time with your XText/IntelliJ experiments.
