I'm using IDEA 12 and I'm working on the most basic project setup possible. I'm having 2 classes in my project and a simple artifact setup (exploded web app) which seems to work when I copy it to the webapps directory in the Tomcat installation.
The problem is that when I try to deploy the same artifact through a run configuration in IDEA, it doesnt work. The log console states that the deployment was succesfull but the artifact never moves to the tomcat directory.
Also, the connection to Tomcat seems to be working as expected.
Any ideas on what I'm doing wrong?
