How can I use GWT shell browser with Tomcat?

Hi,

I have been having trouble getting the GWT Studio server to take note of settings in its context and web xml files. Postings on the GWT forum suggest that this is a defect of the embedded GWT server and that it's better to run the GWT development shell with a -noserver option, which makes it possible to use an external Tomcat server and still debug the client code in the GWT browser.

I can't see anything in the GWT run configuration that will enable me to do this. Does anybody know how? I'm using IDEA 6.0.

It isn't possible to pass parameters to GWT Shell in IDEA 6.0. In IDEA 7
you are able to specify -noserver option in GWT Run configuration.

Thanks Nikolay. It sounds like I'd better put IDEA 7 on my Christmas list.
