pertains to intellij ultimate latest ga:
my understanding is that all paths specified within a project are project_dir-relative (and thus portable). I was trying to define a project_dir relative 'tomcat home' in run configs > application servers > tomcat. but:
1) specifying a relative path results in Intellij IDEA bin path being prepended
2) starting with $PROJECT_DIR$ explicitly is same as 1)
3) setting an absolute path persists across computers.
How can i specify a portable tomcat home path?
for context: though inelegant, we found it useful to keep tomcat binary in our project SVN Trunk, under $trunk/some/path/tomcat ($trunk is also project home dir)
