im using IntelliJ IDEA 8.1.4 and Tomcat 6 under Linux.
I have at least two web application and i specified my tomcat context in the web project under "webapps/META-INF/context.xml". I also added the Tomcat 5.5 "Tomcat Context Descriptor under the project web settings
The problem is that IDEA not reconize the application context and because i have two web application i can not start tomcat without filling something into the "Application Context" input field under "RunDebug" because of the "Error: Dublicatetd context path''".
The problem seem to very similiar to http://www.jetbrains.net/devnet/message/5206282#5206282 but in my case is makes no difference if i use the war file or the exploded directory.
