In my production environment I have an apache server sitting at the root level (http://mysite.com/... ) and all urls that go to my app (http://mysite.com/myapp/... ) are routed to my grails web-app under tomcat through a tomcat connector.
I'm trying to reproduce this environment for local debugging. My problem is that my intellij project does not contain the apache resources. When I launch the debugger it goes to localhost:8080/myapp/. If I try to go to localhost:8080/index.html I get a 400 bad request response. I'm looking for a place where I can put the static html pages which would be equivalent to the tomcat webapps/ROOT directory, so I can drop a mypage.html there that would show up when I type localhost:8080/mypage.html.
It can either be part of the project/module configuration or it can be an external directory (something like the project directory in the grails installation). I tried all kinds of module configurations and I looked for the place IDEA uses as the root dir for the tomcat web app and couldn't get it to work. Any suggestions?
