How to debug a web app in a remote Tomcat?

I have a remote Tomcat 6 started with the following JVM options (figure Untitled2.png). Figure Untitled1.png shows the Remote Connection Settings.

When I click the debug button, my application is not deployed to that remote Tomcat? What should I do?

Thank you.

Remote deployment to Tomcat is not supported. You can deploy the application to Tomcat by hand.

Morning,
After reading I need to ask two questions so that I may understand your issue here.
     1) Are you trying to determine how to hook intelliJ into a remote instance of tomcat so that you may debug/trace your application? or
     2) Are you trying to determine how to get intelliJ to deploy your application to a remote server? or
     3) both?

As Nikolay explained, the capability to make and deploy your project to a remote server is not a primary feature of intelliJ.
To automate this process is not hard, it just requires a few extra steps utilizing a different process. Connecting intelliJ to a remote tomcat instance by itself is not hard, it requires a few small tweaks within your tomcat startup scripts. What is you pain? We may have the medicine you seek?

Cheers
Jeffrey

Maybe remote deployment should be a new feature that gets implemted soon.
