Fixed the Plugin “EclipseMode” for IntelliJ IDEA 9

Published by at 11:39 PM under intellij idea

Update: Works perfectly with the new IDEA 10 ! Have a lot of fun with it :)

The IDEA-Plugin EclipseMode, originally developed by Alexey Efimov for the Java-IDE IntelliJ IDEA, is useful for activating incremental compilation (well-known from Eclipse). It is working fine for IDEA 8 but not for IDEA 9. So i have fixed a bug in this plugin and it is now working with IDEA 9.0 Beta and IDEA 92.65.


Download and extract the plugin-archive into the IDEA 9-Subdirectory plugins.



Start IDEA 9 and open the Application Settings (press STRG+ALT+S). Navigate to plugins and search there for EclipseMode. Activate it and restart IDEA.

Open again the Application Settings and you see inside the IDE Settings the new entry Eclipse Mode. Activate it.

Enable incremental compilation

When you now change any class and save it, it will be immediately compiled. Errors are shown inside the Messages-Window.

    Great job!
    Your fixed plugin successfully works on IntelliJ IDEA 9.0.3.

    It seems that you are a member of the plugin authors now.
    Would you update the plugin to the web page?

    It seems that plug-in does compilation always – after every single movement, not on the ctrl-s pressing. May be something wrong with my IDE settings? I done everything exact as in the instruction. Please, help!

  4. The plugin does compilation when you save your files OR lose the focus of the IDEA-Window (switching to an other running Application).
