Thanks, frederik.
I wanted automated way(don't modify current AUR package && upgrading/reinstalling does not change JDK),
so I created /etc/profile.d/ (filename is important) which overrides WEBIDE_JDK. hope this help others too!

Hi blmarket,
to use the bundled JRE:
1. make sure that the jre was not deleted by the PKGBUILD
2. comment out the WEBIDE_JDK variable in /etc/profile.d/

as this AUR package defines WEBIDE_JDK environment variable, webstorm always run with default JDK. how can I run this with different JDK? specifically, I'd like to run with Jetbrains JDK for better font rendering while keeping oracle jdk as default.

@pepo900 this is the stable webstorm package. For release candidates and eap releases please consider the webstorm-eap package here [1].

Hello Frederik,

I have a problem with the last version of this package:

Unsupported Java Version: Cannot start under Java 1.7.0_101-b00: Java 1.8 or later is required.

Both jre 7 and 8 are installed on my system and it seems like the wrong one is used here. Do you know I could I fix that?

Thanks for maintaining this package, it has been really useful to me :)

@hobbypunk I fixed the double icon by changing the StartupWMClass from jetbrains-webstorm to jetbrains-webstormh. I changed this a week ago (with PhpStorm too) and I have not experienced this issue again.

Dear hobbypunk,
If you want to change anything in the desktop file, copy it to ~/.local/share/applications and change it to your needs.

The extra icons are a known problem. I have already explained that in the phpstorm package. Briefly: The desktop file is generated by jetbrains and though they have to change the behavior of webstorm. Open issue here:
