So I'm moving to a company that's doing a lot of big data work so the configuration will be Java/Apache as the API/REST layer and we'll be serving a single page application in Angular JS on this. Has anyone used WebStorm with Apache? Is it something where I'll have to start the web server outside of the application (from a terminal or eclipse)? I plan on using bower/gulp for task running and package management. Was hoping to use Express on top of it but they want to stick strictly to Java/Apache for the mean time.
Any help/experience/ideas would be greatly appreciated!!!
