My employer uses Eclipse with Tomcat for development. I prefer using Intellij. The current Eclipse (luna) tomcat config has Tomcat running in the /opt/tomcat dir. The application is built using maven and the resulting WAR file is placed in the maven repository. The deployment is located in the eclipse .metadata folder (.metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.wst.server.core/tmp0/wtpwebapps/webapp/). How can I set this up in Idea. I've played with the Deploy features under settings but am not familiar with the overall concept about how it works/what it is doing.
The war file built by Maven is located at /mnt/DATA/Workspaces/bronze0/cp-bronze/webapp/target/webapp-0.0.1-SNAPSHOT.war
The deployment target is /mnt/DATA/Workspaces/bronze1/.metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.wst.server.core/tmp0/wtpwebapps
The conf file for Tomcat is located at /mnt/DATA/Workspaces/bronze1/.metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.wst.server.core/tmp0/conf
