Running JRun or simply showing console output?

Hi, I'm trying out IntelliJ 10 and have really liked what I've seen so far.  (I've been using RubyMine for about a year now.)  I've got Ruby projects running and Tomcat projects running.  The one thing I haven't been able to figure out yet is how to run JRun.  I still have a need to run JRun from time to time and I'd like to be able to see its console output as I work in IntelliJ.  I can't find a JRun plugin or much of anything else of use.  

So, does anyone know of a way to start JRun in IntelliJ?  I do not need to be able to debug or anything else.  Really, I just need to start an arbitrary program (in this case JRun) and see the console output from within IntelliJ.  Any suggestions?

Thanks for your help,

Doug

Hello Doug,

The most general way of running any application from IntelliJ IDEA is to
configure it as an external tool using Settings | External Tools.

Hi Dmitry,
I'm also having a problem with configuring IntelliJ IDEA 10  with JRun server.

But it's giving me this on console when i start JRun from Tool:

C:\JRun4\bin\jrunwizard.exe

[Mon Dec 26 12:52:17 PKT 2011 JRunWizard Log ]: null : java.lang.NullPointerException: java.lang.NullPointerException

Process finished with exit code 0



Thanks in advance!

The NullPointerException comes from JRun itself or from your application, not from IntelliJ IDEA. Unfortunately we are not familiar with JRun and are unable to provide support for problems specific to it.
