And, to finish on that subject:

What's up with the Java version numbering? Can you imagine a worse mess?

openjdk 1.8.0_222 = Java 8
openjdk version "12.0.1" = Java 12

That's just typing "java -version". Please note there are Java 9, 10, and 11 between these two.

And then there is the difference between HotSpot and OpenJ9, and between the Oracle JDK and OpenJDK, etc...

So... The stable Groovy version 2.5.7 does not work well with anything but Java 8. Everything else will at the very least scream warnings or purely refuse execution.

To fix it, under Mac OS X, go to and download Java 8, install the package and, under IntelliJ, edit your project to point at this new installation.

Tada! Now Groovy works under IntelliJ!

Is it me or is Java just a dumpster fire of undefined dependencies?

Like, a really brittle house of cards?

Every new edgy server that joins the fediverse thinks they are the chosen one to finally break it and/or lead it glory. We've been through it a hundred times before, you're just not that important.

pendant de temps, à Hong Kong, on parle de la police française en contre-exemple pour justifier des violences policières supposément moins graves qu'ici :

"Des polices occidentales ont utilisé bien plus de force durant des opérations de maintien de l'ordre," dit un officier à l'AFP. "A Paris ou à New York, on aurait eu bien plus de blessures, de crânes fracturés et d'os cassés".
