New IntelliJ Project

All of the steps above must be implemented once, but you'll need to do the following for each new IntelliJ project.

If the version of the JDK is different, you will need to use the new version number in the rest of the instructions. E.g., if the version of JDK is 21.0.2, you should replace jdk-21 with jdk-21.0.2.
