  2. In the Catapult Menu, click the Command-Line Tab.
  3. Click the Email Example IntelliJ Project File button.

Run the code

Note: If you get an error message stating ‘cannot start compiler: the SDK is not specified for module “RunReport”’, your Java Development Kit is not correctly configured with IntelliJ. See our documentation on installing and Configuring IntelliJ for assistance.
