Migrating from WSDc to Idea?

Hello!

God I hate asking this question because it is SO basic but I'll try anyway - please be gentle! :-)

We are developing simple servlets (ending up in war files) on IBM WebSphere Development Studio Client for iSeries 5.1 and want to migrate to Idea.
My question is: Can I do all the stuff in Idea that I can in WSDSC-5.1?

We do basic stuff like:
o Create new projects (with directory structure) very easy.
o Writing code, compiling, unittesting (from ant scripts, ok) :-)
o Executing the servlets locally. We do not deploy the servlets to a real WebSphere server.
o Debugging the servlets, inspecting variables
o In WebSphere we can change a method that the debugger is stepping through, save, and the method is restarted and the debugging session can continue.
o Export to a war file for direct deployment.

Can all this be done direcly from Idea, without jumping back and forth between Idea and WSDSC. Right now I just use Idea as an editor and swaps to WSDSC when compiling and executing and all that.

So! Can this be done and can I find a tutorial or other documentation which describes how this is done.
I would love to deinstall the old buggy WSDSC!

Best regards,
- Morten Green Hermansen, Fanitas

Yes, this can be done using IDEA (may be except some WebSphere specific tasks which can be done using ant scripts). I think there is no single
tutorial describing all these tasks but you can use IDEA help and documentation from http://www.jetbrains.com/idea for particular tasks.
