Remote tomcat 7 and idea 12

Hi all!

I want to configure deploy project to remote tomcat 7 from idea 7. But in run configuration idea requires Application server (tomcat home and tomcat base dir). Is I need install tomcat to local (developers) system for remote deploy?


Yes you do. From the help documentation: "If the run/debug configuration is intended for working with a remote server, the same server version should be configured locally and associated with the run/debug configuration."


And the logic behind that is that IDEA uses some server- and even server-version-specific libraries to administer the remote server and thus needs some place to get the correct libraries from.
