Tomcat setup dilemna

There's a problem with the running of Tomcat with IDEA.

IDEA doesn't use any shell script to run Tomcat, just calling the JVM
directly, thus not giving any opportunity to specify neither the
classpath nor any command line variables that a web application might need.

Is this going to be rectified in the future? Because until it is there
is no way that I can use it in my environment :(

Hi John,

Build 642 will allow to
- specify path to tomcat home,
- specify path to configuration files to be used for the Run session
- to associate your WebApplication with one of the contexts declared in the
specified "server.xml"
- to specify additional VM arguments
- to use class path configured in IDEA project

Will this cover all your needs?
