IntelliJ for jdk dev - question about

Hi all,

I am checking out IntelliJ as an alternative for jdk development.

A possibly stupid question, does the /bin/ project-build script
assume that we run configure from within the source directory?

In my workflow I always place the output directories outside the
source tree, and I would to keep it that way. I would even prefer the
.idea folder to live outside the source tree as well. Is that

Thank you,
