Tomcat deploy from Maven

I am just trying out Idea Ultimate. I have an existing maven project fro a webservice. I have configured it to deploy to tomcat and it appears to be doing that. Except when I try to access the site through a browser I can type whatever I like after the localhost:8080 and I just get a blank page (not a 404).

It seems to be in some brain damaged mode. I also can't access the tomcat manager so I can't confirm whether anything has been deployed.

Can anyone suggest how I can determine what is wrong?

What is "it" that is configured to do the deploy? Maven or an IDEA run configuration?

Have you looked in the ${CATALINA_BASE}/webapps directory to verify the webapp is there? And have you looked at the Tomcat logs to see if there is any information or error messages in the logs?

It is an IDEA run configuration. I tried it again today and it just worked. Perhaps there was a brain damaged tomcat process hanging around on my system.
