2 questions about IntelliJ and Tomcat

1) I have a Tomcat 6 server configuration set up so that "On Update" it would "Update classes and resources". I would deploy my exploded war via the Deployment tab. The "On Update" works just fine. Once I remove my war from the Deployment tab, click OK to close out the window, that "Update clases on resources" reverts to restart. Any consecutive war I deploy after that, I have to change the "On Update" from Restart to "Update classes and resources" again. How do I make that setting stick to always "Update..."?

2) When I deploy an exploded war, how can I make IntelliJ auto set the Application context like how Eclipse handles it?

IntelliJ 12.02
Windows XP SP3

There's some really frustrating bugs around Tomcat deployment in IDEA 12, http://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-97961 http://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-98921 etc...

I'd try to avoid the Update options until somebody gets around to fixing these. I'm having to use IDEA-11 when debugging tomcat, only way I can get things to work reliably.
