I'm sure this is the help file or online documentation someplace but I am sorry, I couldn't find it. My apologies. Maybe the answer to this is just a URL. I have spent too much time on this and would really appreciate a little help.
I have a simple Servlet project using Tomcat that seems to be set up and running properly using the Web facet. My index.jsp and WEB-INF directory are deployed nicely to the myproject_war_exploded directory.
I added a directory "settings" under "web" alongside "WEB-INF" and index.jsp but it is not getting deployed to "out\artifacts\myproject_war_exploded"
I can see that under properties --> Artifacts --> myproject:war exploded has, under the "Output Layout" tab
'web' directory content (C:\myproject\).
I was hoping IntelliJ would pick all of the files and directories I put there.
On the same "Artifacts" page under the same "OutputLayout" tab I tried using the + Directory Content, added the "settings" directory, build the artifacts, and nothing happens.
I don't see anything under the "Run/Debug" configurations that applies.
