Subject Re: "Output path is not specified for module" (IntelliJ)
Date Thu, 20 Jun 2019 20:28:13 GMT

Can you please share a screen shot of your gradle preferences in Intellij (I attached mine,
too).  I tried Jens’ solution and used the Gradle builder and the IntelliJ test runner and
it works okay, but I don’t think I am getting the advantage of intellij’s continuous incremental
building in the background.  This adds 10’ish seconds to my TDD loop because it has to keep
compiling geode-core:test.

I saw the options to ‘inherit project compile path’ but there were tons of modules and
I am not sure if I have to set it on all of them.

If anyone else has build and test working with IntelliJ and knows what I am doing wrong, please
chime in.
