Is it possible to remotely deploy locally built artifacts to a Remote Tomcat? I've been banging my head against the staging and host controls shown in the remote tomcat run configuration but every attempt results in a file transfer window appearing with the message "no files or folders to process"? I'm also confused by the host configuration here as the mapping and exclusions tabs always appear empty. I've tried local mounted folders and SFTP setups, neither seems to want to work.
With my example here I've mounted my remote tomcats webapps folder on Windows as W:\ (with correct tomcat app user)
I know this works fine with a local tomcat server, but I'm trying to test/debug same webapp against Linux. Confused as to how to make this dialog work, or even if it does. Notice I'm building the webapp artifact navigator.webinf, but can't see how to transfer it? ideally as a .war.
