I <3 IntelliJ IDEA.

Great package, and uwolfer is probably an awesome man.

Ain't that right? ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Here's a way to create a split package:

There is only 1 PKGBUILD file, but it defines 4 packages.
The main package is "intellij-idea-ultimate-edition" and depends on "intellij-idea-ultimate-edition-jre-meta". This JRE meta package is not a real package, but it is provided by two other packages:
- intellij-idea-ultimate-edition-jre-bundled: The JRE bundled with the Jetbrains download.
- intellij-idea-ultimate-edition-jre-system: The default "java-environment" package.

The user will be asked which package he wants to install ("-jre-bundled" or "-jre-system"). Looks very nice I think. Thanks @pschichtel for the help! @uwolfer wdyt?

Agree, this "split package" approach seems like a nice solution! Will try to look into it. Need to better understand how "makepkg" works first.

@pschichtel: The official IntelliJ community edition package provided by Archlinux does also not provide the bundled JRE.

So there were IMHO three ways to handle this in the future:
1: Provide a 2nd package "intellij-idea-ultimate-edition-bundled-jre", let the existing one as-is.
2: Provide a variable which can be switched easily at buildtime like AUR pkg "intellij-idea-ue-eap" does:
3: Do it like Clion, which requires a bit more efforts to maintain for me.

Since I use IntelliJ without bundled JRE on daily basis without issues, I have decided to not invest more efforts than required. Since @njam decided to publish a package with bundled JRE, everybody can decide at installation time which solution he prefers.

Thanks to @njam for standing up and creating this new package.

@njam just out of interest: What where the reasons to go for a separate package instead of a split package?

After discussing with uwolfer (maintainer) we decided to create a separate package with a bundled JRE:

@srki_82 yeah sure I could do that, but I don't really want a patched jdk installed globally.

njam commented on 2016-12-15 13:38

Here's a version with the JRE included:

You can install intellij-jdk as your Java package. It is JetBrains pached version of Java packed as Arch Linux package.
