In the Ant Build panel, Rt-click on the little Ant guy and select Properties.  In the Properties
window, under the Execution tab, there's a "Run under custom JDK" checkbox; check that and
pick 1.4.

Also, in the Project preferences, make sure the target JDK is 1.4, and select the "support
assert" checkbox to get your asserts to be recognized properly.

Be sure to run Idea 2.6 under JDK 1.3.1, though, as it is really flakey under 1.4.

Subject: Re: [OFF-TOPIC] Proper IDEA/IntelliJ setup

IDEA 2.6?   I guess so, since the latest EAP versions require JDK 1.4.

I have the opposite environment, I'm running IDEA on JDK 1.4 and 
building on and for JDK 1.3.1_04.  I'm using build 638, and have my 
project properties to use the 1.3.1_04 JDK target and also set my Ant 
builds (Ant properties) to execute under that custom JDK version.  All 
has been well.

Not sure if that helps or not.
